Triple appointments at Codetronix

L-R: Jon Blackham, regional sales manager for the southern region; Paul Johnson, general manager; James Newnham, regional sales manager for the northern region

UK-based coding and marking specialist Codetronix has strengthened its team with the appointment of three new members of staff.

Codetronix supplies specialist coding, marking, printing, labelling and product identification equipment to manufacturing clients in the food and drink, pharmaceutical, personal care and industrial and construction sectors.

The newly appointed member of staff: Paul Johnson, Jon Blackham and James Newnham bring over 40 years of experience and will be based in the new headquarters at Carrwood Park, in Leeds.

Johnson joins the company as general manager after 25 years in sales roles in the industry, including management and as sales director.

‘As the demand for packaged goods increases, driven by the increase in online shopping, there’s an even greater need for our specialist machines,’ commented Johnson. ‘Our products ensure that, you know when your food is past its sell by date, how many boxes you should have in your new flat pack furniture, or what your prescribed dosage should be on medication.

‘One of my first objectives was to build a strong sales team to enable us to service the varied demands of our client base across the UK. Bringing Jon and James into the business is going to make a real difference.’

Blackham joins the business as regional sales manager for the southern region, bringing with him a wealth of experience in the automotive industry particularly in the fields of engineering and technical design.

Newnham, who joins as regional sales manager for the northern region, has been selling high value capital equipment for the last 15 years including large format digital cutting systems and industrial lasers.
