Alpha Packaging Promotes Two Team Members to Support Accelerated Growth.
ST. LOUIS, MO — 6/21/05

 

As a result of increasing sales and a recent financial partnership that is helping the company to grow at an accelerated pace, Alpha Packaging recently promoted two employees to handle its growing account base.

After successfully expanding many of Alpha's newer accounts, Sean Sapienza has been promoted from Inside Sales to Territory Sales for St. Louis and surrounding areas. Initially hired as a Customer Service Representative in 2001, Sapienza's new position was created so he could expand Alpha's existing customer base in St. Louis and in surrounding areas. In his new position, Sapienza will handle the day-to-day account responsibilities for all the core accounts in his assigned sales region which includes Memphis, Tenn., and all of Missouri except Kansas City.

Hired in 2001 as a Warehouse Coordinator, Tim Yancey was promoted to Logistic Coordinator in 2004 where he was responsible for outgoing shipments. In this role, Yancey was effective in reducing costs and overhead. With his strong knowledge of Alpha's product line, Yancey was recently promoted to Inside Sales. In his new position, Yancey will handle customer inquiries and take charge of the majority of the accounts recently handled by Sapienza.

The promotions are due in part to Alpha's recent financial partnership with Stonebridge Partners, a private equity firm of White Plains, N.Y. With the new financial support, Alpha will be growing at an accelerated pace into new markets and technologies.

In each of the past six years, Alpha has sustained double-digit sales increases, and concluded 2004 with $47 million in sales, a 30% increase over 2003 sales figures. Alpha Packaging is among the top 30 largest blow molders of plastic bottles and jars in North America.
