“It’s great to join a business that’s growing organically and where the challenge is ramping up production to meet market demand. For anyone in production that’s a perfect problem to have”, he says.


Gregory comes to Redland from a group called Essentra that he effectively joined when he graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Materials Engineering in 2003. He rose from being a process engineer right the way through to becoming Manufacturing Director in his 13 years with the company, at one time responsible for nearly 800 staff at manufacturing sites based in the UK, Latin America, USA and Asia.


Essentra produced very different products – from cigarette filters to printed packaging for the food industry – but Gregory says that the fundamental disciplines of manufacturing and operational management are very similar.


“When you strip these things down you use the same tools – such as people management and production control,” he comments. “I’m looking forward to employing my skills in this new and dynamic environment”.
