Steve Barwick, Sales and Marketing Manager, said: “Everyone at Parafix is enormously proud to have played an important role in the Parafix journey, which has seen the company grow into one of the UK’s leading adhesive tape converters, bringing employment to the local area.
“We now work with global brands such as 3M to provide bonding solutions to a growing number of clients, and we are very excited about the years to come as we continue to expand and develop.”
