Managing director of Midlands-based Doro Tape, James Carpenter, is to officially retire and be succeeded by Michael Ingram
The two have worked together to turn the company into one of the UK’s leading suppliers of self-adhesive films for the creative sector as well as supplying technical films to various industries for well over 20 years. It is testament to their hard work that the next stage is embarked upon with a secure financial footing and one of the best independent portfolios of products available.
With over 30 years of service Mr Carpenter will now enjoy his retirement while still contributing to the business on a consultancy basis.
Mr Ingram said: “We have worked towards this end for the past couple of years before COVID got in the way of proceedings last year. I am pleased that the time is now right, and I am excited to be able to take it into the next phase.
“Innovation is a key part of our future thinking and we have some really exciting product developments in place that should see us benefit greatly in various sectors. I am especially excited by our new offering of PVC Free films and materials made from post-consumer recycled plastic.”
The company is a distributor of top European manufacturing brands including as ASLAN, Poli-Tape, R-Tape and Ritrama as well as having a range of specialist sign, window and digital print materials under its own name.
Mr Ingram added: “I am very lucky to have had James as a friend and colleague over this time. Together, we share the same passion for meeting people and building relationships with customers and suppliers alike and we have bounced ideas off each other along the way.”
Doro Tape is also launching a brand-new logo that embodies the company’s specialist approach to both the technical and creative sides of the business. This will soon be seen on its website and at many exhibitions in 2022.
