New Buyer

Produce Packaging is delighted to to have a new member of the buying team

Welcome Alan!

We would like to congratulate Alan Cole on his appointment as a buyer for Produce Packaging!

Alan has over 25 years’ experience of buying and stock management experience predominately in the IT Infrastructure environment.

Alan joined the business at the end of April and is already enjoying the role.

“I am relishing the challenge of using my purchasing knowledge, learning about the packaging products, customers, suppliers and helping the existing buying team to maximise efficiencies. I am also delighted to report that the existing staff at Produce Packaging have made me feel so welcome which has made the experience of starting at a new company so enjoyable.

Outside of work, Alan’s main interests are aviation, motor racing and music. (He modestly neglects to say that he has been to the Monaco GP no less than 4 times!)


In Alan’s new role, he will be joining Denise and Danielle to further enhance what is a crucial department. Working at our newly refurbished Marden H.O. (ongoing!) Alan will be responsible for the day to day detail of buying that is so important to the successful growth and continuity of our business. Alan will be managing stock at our four UK depot locations, keeping our stock items available for next day delivery and maintain the strong relationships that we enjoy with our important supply partners.

“I am delighted that Alan has joined us in the buying team.  Packaging is a new sector for Alan but he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from his buying background and will be a valued member in this new role to our team.” – Denise Powell, Buying Manager

Congratulations from the whole Produce Packaging team Alan, welcome aboard!
