Leonard Little & Associates

​David Little managed packaging for Bord Na Mona Horticultural business. He was invaluable for his deep knowledge of packaging in a manufacturing environment – understanding packaging design and ensuring it was fit for manufacture. He managed the packaging implementation of new product development – translating new product art design to delivered high volume packaging on the manufacturing line. He provided technical support to root cause all quality issues with packaging performance, and was instrumental in determining and resolving a costly supplier quality issue. In addition David took on continuous improvement projects aligned to packaging with enthusiasm and competence – one such project is now deployed providing €100,000 in potential cost savings.”

“We engaged David to help out with a very tricky packaging request. David was more than helpful, understood our problem and was able to solve it in a very short time frame. David went above and beyond providing expert advice and also assisted on numerous other packaging problems along the way. Would highly recommend.”
