A recent acquisition into the Group, API Foilmakers, manufacture a diverse range of stamping foils in Livingston, supported by European distribution and service ‘hubs’ in the UK, Italy, Poland and France.  Poised for further significant growth through product innovation and investment, and supporting an impressive blue chip customer base, a rare opportunity has now arisen for a highly autonomous Managing Director to take full P&L responsibility for the European business, which has a turnover of approximately £30m p.a of which approximately 80% is exported.
