A NORTH Yorkshire business supply chain specialists has strengthened its talented team with two senior appointments.

CTS UK is a market leader in personalised uniforms, workwear, promotional products, personal protective equipment (PPE) and cleaning and hygiene products.

Thanos Klonis and Paul Mundy join the Northallerton-based firm at a pivotal stage in its development in the wake of a record-breaking year.

Thanos is the company’s new Group IT Systems Manager, while Paul joins as the Group Consolidation Specialist.

Howard Gill, CTS UK’s Managing Director, said: “These are two very significant appointments, which will help to build on the substantial progress we have made during the past two years.

“Thanos’s appointment allows CTS and our newly-purchased company, Safeguard Supplies Ltd, to seamlessly interface internally and with our customers. Thanos will also streamline and improve the whole business’s IT systems to support our continued and sustainable growth.

“Meanwhile Paul’s tremendous enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of supply chain sales, especially of the cleaning and hygiene sector, will enable us to extend our reach into this very fertile area.

“Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, CTS is expanding quickly, with increased turnover and profits in 2021, new premises in Northallerton, new clients and brand-new state-of-the-art machinery.” Thanos, who has previously worked for the Billingham-based NYMAS Group and Barrett Steel, said: “The speed of growth of CTS UK means that an integrated IT system is crucially important, both internally and externally. It is my responsibility to take CTS’s IT systems to the next level.”

Paul Mundy, who joins CTS from the Leicester-based Merton Group, said: “This is an absolutely dream job for me. I’m much closer to home and I’m joining a company which is really going places.”
