A Nottingham-based food packaging firm which has seen a surge in supermarket orders is set to create 25 jobs.

The Wilkins Group, based in Colwick, is seeking extra support in the fight to keep the supermarket shelves fully stocked.

Justin Wilkins, sales and marketing director said: “Due to the current global and domestic situation and increased demand, the business is urgently seeking skilled operators from the printing industry. These contracts will be temporary but may turn into permanent roles dependent on future circumstances.”

The Wilkins Group operates within the textile market from sites in China, Romania, Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka to be close to needle point, but its food packaging operations are based at its Nottingham HQ.

Last year the firm turned over £36m.
