Ian Loggie, Logosn Group joint owner, added; “Selecting Bob for this award was the natural choice and thoroughly deserved. Bob’s contribution to the Logson business has been invaluable and myself, Mike and the team at Logson Group are delighted to see him being recognised for the dedication that he has shown the packaging industry over the years.
