Detmold Group has recently expanded into Vietnam and the Middle East. The new plants will expand the Group’s global footprint, allowing them to grow through the UAE and GCC as well as create a second export focused plant.
As the Detmold Group grows its sales in existing and new markets they will ensure they continue to develop their manufacturing base to meet these demands. The Group is committed to continually improving their existing plants and also commissioning new sites that create more manufacturing capacity and/or are strategically located to minimise costs such as duties and logistics.
To support the challenge of focusing on existing operations whilst also developing new sites, the Detmold Group has made some notable changes. Detmold Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Taso Kourou to the newly created position of general manager operations. In this role Taso will be responsible for the management of the existing operations in Australia and China providing leadership and support to the management teams in these countries and driving the Group’s ongoing pursuit of world-class paper converting standards.
Taso comes to Detmold Group after spending the last 11 years with Goodman Fielder and National Foods where he held a number of senior operations and general management roles. In his most recent role Taso was operations director for Goodman Fielder’s Home Ingredients division.
Detmold Group has appointed Frederic Rault to the role of country manager Vietnam. Frederic is currently based in Vietnam and was operations manager for Hi-Tech Wires Asia for the past three years. Prior to this he held the role of general manager for Boyriven Vietnam (a supplier to the automotive industry) where he was responsible for all aspects of the company’s start-up in Vietnam. In total Frederic has spent seven years in Vietnam, including 18 months playing professional soccer.
These appointments for Detmold Group are critical for further development of their manufacturing base and their ongoing commitment to quality, service and efficiency principals. As a highly responsive company, Detmold Group offers an unrivalled range of innovative packaging solutions to a diverse range of markets. Driven by the highest standards in every aspect of operations, the Group places a strong emphasis on quality, service and efficiency within all aspects of its operations.
