We are immensely proud of our people. From our production operatives through to our customer service advisors, every individual in our friendly team is an expert in his or her area of work and is dedicated to providing a first class customer experience. Meet some key members of our team:

General Manager
Sue: General Manager
I was previously Sales and Operations Planning Director at LINPAC Packaging before joining Doric FPD in January 2015. With 19 years of packaging manufacturing experience my role is to manage the continuous improvement of processes and procedures on site. Outside of work I love to spend quality time with my Family.

Supply Chain
Andy : Supply Chain Manager
My job involves liaising with suppliers, ensuring the correct volumes of raw materials are available for production, and looking after the internal stock lines. I enjoy being part of the team at Doric and the continuous challenge of improving our internal systems and customer service. Outside of work I enjoy football and working out in the gym.

Gillian: Shift Supervisor
I have previously worked mainly within the food production industry and worked for Northern Foods for 10 years. As a result of this, I am familiar with a quite a few of Doric’s customers. As a Shift Supervisor at Doric I have responsibility for prioritising manufacturing workload and ensure that company products are manufactured to meet the requirements of the business and to customer specification. I am also responsible for managing manufacturing costs and Key Performance Indicators including direct labour cost, wastage and production inefficiencies. Outside of work, I am a self-confessed Costa coffee addict and like to set myself goals on home improvements, usually funded by the Bank of Husband, who also acts as ‘gopher’ in sourcing the materials! I also love spending time with my family, and my 3 children ensure there’s never a dull (or quiet!) moment.
Dave: Senior Manufacturing Manager
My role varies daily aligned to the needs of the business. The range of activities change daily which makes the job more interesting. The continuing growth of the business creates great opportunities and challenges which enable the team to develop and grow with the company. Every day brings different opportunities making each day interesting to say the least. Outside of work I enjoy Digital photography and in particular turning an average photo into something special in Photoshop. I also enjoy spending time with my Grandchildren, having family gatherings - which is usually either a Barby or Curry night.
Wendy : Production Supervisor
I have a ‘hands on’ role on the shop floor where I plan, progress and monitor production of Doric products. I enjoy the challenge and the friendly people I work with. Outside of work I like to spend time with my grandchildren and go on long walks with my partner and our border terrier, Ben.
Stuart : Office Administrator
My role involves producing job sheets, posting production, adjusting stock figures and handling customer calls. Outside of work I like to spend time with my family and enjoy music, dancing and dog walking.

Jeremy : Sales Manager
I am a sales manager for the Doric Group which means each day is incredibly varied. I spend time with customers from all of the Doric companies and have been able to build up relationships with customers along the way, which makes my job a real pleasure. I have over 20 years’ experience within the packaging industry which I hope enables me to come up with new ideas when called for. I find this industry involves a real learning curve as we all strive towards sustainable packaging. Outside of Work I have a busy life with three children. Time permitting I play squash and I am a fair weather dinghy sailor which I enjoy racing at weekends.
Linda: Customer Service Manager
I’m currently learning about our customers so that I can help to improve customer service we provide. I enjoy the challenges of working in a forward thinking Company with diverse products and customers - and of course the people! Outside of work, I love the outdoors including walking, horse riding and skiing (when I get the chance) plus eating out and lovely holidays!
Ryan: Sales Administrator
My role is to help current and potential customers with any questions that they may have. I also arrange samples for customers and put on sales orders. I enjoy my role because everyday is different and you don’t know what request you are going to get next. I enjoy helping people and this role allows me to do that, it is a great feeling knowing that you have helped a customer find a way around a problem that they were facing. In my spare time I enjoy watching/playing Football and Basketball, I also enjoy travelling something which I am hoping to do a lot more of in the coming years
Clare : Product Manager
My job is a new role to Doric which involves working on new products coming into the business. It is a very varied role, and I work with our customers and colleagues from across all different parts of the business to ensure that products are launched on time and to the correct specification.

My days are spread across the 3 Doric Group Companies ensuring Compliance to is maintained at all sites to quality standards, health, safety and environmental requirements. When I’m not working I love to socialise, spending time with my family and friends, although I am a keen hostess I let my husband do the cooking. I have 2 children, 1 grown up and 1 not quite, so I am not off the hook yet, but I do enjoy escaping to warmer climates.
Bob: Health and Safety Supervisor
My work varies from day to day. I have worked for the company for about 17 years, so I have a lot of experience on all types of machinery. One day I could be doing safe system of work or guillotining, the next, I could be running a complex packaging machine. I enjoy the good team ethic at Doric. Outside of work, I have a passion for Lambretta's. I have been riding them since the early 80’s on weekend trips around the UK and Europe. It’s great to meet people from around the world and make new friends
