FT Short was formed in 1943, growing and packing produce for Lockwoods (now Premier Foods). After a period of steady growth, David Carter took the reins in 2004, taking the company forwards into a dynamic new phase as a contract packing and reworking specialist.
Stronger management systems
FT Short now has a well-structured management team to ensure a rapid and effective response to all of our customers’ needs. Contract packing and reworking is a competitive industry and our management team are primed to ensure FT Short remains innovative and progressive.
As part of our ongoing investment programme, we have a bespoke database system that enables customers to log in and enjoy full traceability of their products and packaging. This is only the tip of the iceberg as we continue to invest in faster and more efficient packaging production machinery and systems.
We believe our people are an essential part of our success story, and as such we are committed to our employees, who are encouraged at every level to take advantage of the personal development and training programmes we offer.
We believe all of these factors combined will deliver to our customers an excellent and uncompromising service.
