A KEIGHLEY-based company has strengthened its technology team.

PFF Group – which manufactures food packaging and during the pandemic has diversified into producing personal protective equipment ­– has made two new appointments.

Carl Gaffney has joined as head of group IT and Andrew Thompson as senior systems engineer.

Both will work across the company’s sites in Royd Ings Avenue and at Washington, Tyne and Wear.

Mr Gaffney will initially shadow the current head of group IT, Stephen Tomlinson, who is retiring later this year.

Mr Tomlinson said: “As I prepare to leave the business after almost 15 years, it is a real pleasure to work with two very capable and talented colleagues as they forge a new pathway into the future for information and systems technology at the PFF Group.

“I am absolutely delighted to welcome them to the team.”
