UK-Based Gresham Holding Ltd has expanded its ticket, hangtag and label manufacturing operations into the USA with the opening of its North American HQ in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Phil Koch has been hired as president of Gresham USA, with the brief of introducing the company’s sophisticated management systems into the states.

While Gresham’s American core business remains the manufacture of hangtags, woven and printed labels, tickets and security products, Koch sees these systems as the company’s primary edge. Deployed via the Internet, they allow retailers to release tactical control of their ticketing to their suppliers.

Already in widespread use in Europe, Gresham claims that substantial improvements in accuracy and significant reduction in the reaction time of the supply chain can be directly attributed to its management system.
