Newly-established specialist in coding and marking equipment and consumables for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and industrial markets, Co Westmeath-based Needham Coding Ireland Limited, underlines a successful first six months’ trading with two key appointments.

On track to achieve 25% growth, Needham Coding Ireland has appointed Graham Heavin as Field Service Engineer and Vickii Griffiths as Accounts Administrator.
