A KEIGHLEY-based firm has further strengthened its management team.

Andrew Frith has been appointed a general manager for packaging with the PFF Group, whose headquarters are in Royd Ings Avenue.

The move comes as the company continues to develop its new health division, formed after a contract was secured from the Department for Health and Social Care to produce personal protective equipment.

“We are in the process of making key appointments to support the development and growth of our health division,” said group managing director, Kenton Robbins.

“Andrew has come on board as we move forward with our plans to increase production and explore other opportunities in the health sector.”

Mr Frith, who has worked in the packaging industry for more than ten years, will be based at the group’s Washington site.

He said: “I’m looking forward to developing the operations potential.”
