PaperlinX has announced a series of measures to further simplify and improve efficiency within its customer sales and service operations.

With immediate effect, Andy Buxton, managing director, PaperlinX Commercial Print, will assume additional responsibility for Narrow Format Reels, Graphic & Cartonboard, Graphical Consumables, WebCo, Precision Publishing, Resellers and Brightstream.

Buxton will be supported by the existing senior management team, including David Darwood, Steve Webb, Robin Watkinson and Mandy Gallego.

“This new structure forms a key part of our mission to ensure a customer-centric business model,” said Buxton.

The merchant group is proposing to close its Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham sales offices and create one PaperlinX Midlands branch based at Moulton Park. This would further improve efficiencies and facilitate a high level of customer service.

These changes, together with continued development of its Delivery Co. network will result in 80 staff leaving the business.
