Ian Heskins

New Business Director | GWP Group

Following a 4 year mechanical engineering apprenticeship leading to an HNC qualification, Ian’s first role in packaging came back in the late 1980s, learning the industry with a local corrugated box manufacturer.

In August 1990 Ian was invited to join an exciting new start-up business, Great Western Packaging - the company which went on to become the GWP Group that exists today.

Working across all divisions of GWP, Ian boasts unrivalled knowledge of corrugated packaging, high performance foam products, protective cases and Correx solutions. This broad knowledge, acquired over more than 30 years in the industry, has seen him through to becoming GWP’s Group Business Development Director, overseeing new business strategy across the entire company.

Alongside this strategic role, Ian also works closely with customers whose packaging requirements include multiple GWP products, enhancing one of the key strengths of GWP as a business.

When not thinking about packaging, Ian enjoys sports cars, cycling, table tennis, and is also now trying his hand at tennis.
