Leicester company appoints new business development director to continue growth drive

Jason Cox

One of the UK’s largest independent print companies has appointed a new business development director to help drive the next stage of growth as the company celebrates 80 years of trading.

The Leicester-based Taylor Bloxham Group has appointed Jason Cox, formerly sales director at Greenshires printing company to the new role of business development director for the four-brand group. The appointment is the latest move in the company’s plan for growth and investment.

Jason brings over 20 years’ experience in sales and marketing within the print industry to his new role. Having joined Greenshires in 2003 as an account manager, Jason progressed to divisional director and ultimately sales director. He has a first-class honours degree in Business from Leicester’s De Montfort University and also holds a diploma from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Jason is delighted to join the Taylor Bloxham Group, commenting: “The company has a great reputation for high quality print as well as other areas such as fulfilment, POS and direct mail.

“It’s obviously a company that has a long and successful history, but which is continuing to invest and innovate. I’m very much looking forward to playing my part in the company’s growth plans by promoting the group offering of print, direct mail, POS, ecommerce and fulfilment.”

Jason’s appointment is part of the company’s overall strategy to continue investment in senior personnel and premises as well as in the very latest printing technology. In the last 12 months, the company has invested several million pounds in machinery as well as expanding to new premises and upgrading its POS site. As a result, the Taylor Bloxham Group posted a record-breaking turnover of £27 million in the year to September 2017.

“We may have 80 years of history behind us, but innovation is at the heart of everything we do,” comments Robert Lockwood, CEO of the Taylor Bloxham Group. “The results of this investment and diversification are really paying off and with his past experience, Jason is the ideal person to continue driving this growth forwards.”
