Dungannon packaging company Greiner has reported a £6.7m profit on a turnover of just inder £35m.

Part of the Greiner Group, the packaging giant recently made headlines for its part in changing Quality Street tins for plastic.

One of the main packaging manufacturers in Europe, Greiner founded its Dungannon site in 1972, but also has around 3,000 employees across Europe, and in Mexico.

Greiner is a major manufacturer of thermoformed pots for the food and dairy industry.

The Dungannon operation is headed up by Jarek Zasadzinski, who at 33 is the youngest chief executive in the history of the company.

Greiner’s Dungannon factory recently landed its largest ever export contract to America, which will generate around £4m turnover annually.
