By centralising messaging content, we enable large national and international organisations – often with thousands of products – to produce accurate, print-ready artwork for their packaging and labelling in seconds! Read more…
We store all content – text, symbols and logos – as structured data, and manage it in a streamlined way. As a result, amending artwork in line with new market-specific requirements is quick and easy – even if multiple product lines are affected, across multiple markets and in multiple languages.
Global organisations rely on Kallik to ensure compliance, guarantee product and brand consistency, and reduce the risk of product recall. They also gain phenomenal efficiencies as artwork generation is automated, and because content editing can be managed directly by those requesting changes.
In this way Kallik supports its clients’ growth strategies: giving organisations the transparency and speed they need to change labelling and printed collateral in a highly efficient manner – vital attributes that are required when bringing other businesses into the fold or targeting new markets.
Kallik was established in 2001. Our flagship labelling content management and automated artwork generation platform was devised based on the founders’ in-depth experience in this field, and today underpins the businesses of companies including Sealed Air, Estée Lauder, Coloplast, Integra, Unilever, Makhteshim Agan UK, Mary Kay and Paperhat.
The Kallik Management team
The innovative qualities that mark out Kallik’s solutions are the direct result of our team’s deep knowledge and experience of our target markets.
Neil Gleghorn - Chief Executive Officer
Neil has grown Kallik at an impressive rate over the last 12+ years, ensuring that the company attracts great employees and that its technology solutions stay ahead of the challenges facing Kallik’s customers.
Neil has spent his entire career creating businesses in the printing, design and related software industry. Two decades ago he founded The Box Room – now one of the UK’s most successful design origination companies and the pre-cursor to Kallik, which he established as a spin-off company in 2001.
This extensive background in the industry has given Neil deep, first-hand experience of the complex collaborations involved as diverse teams work together to create accurate artwork and labelling.
Neil attends many of Kallik’s sponsored conferences and exhibitions and is a highly-regarded speaker on pharmaceutical, medical device and cosmetics industry related issues and developments.
In August 2014, Neil was honoured by being included on the PharmaVOICE 100, an annual list of life science professionals who have been nominated by their friends and colleagues for their outstanding contributions to the industry.

Carole Gleghorn - Chief Financial Officer
Following many years at a design agency, then managing a design and repro company, Carole became involved in the start-up of The Box Room, a company she ran for six years before Kallik was created as a separate entity in 2001. During that time, she fulfilled a series of key roles in the business in addition to being at its helm.
Alec Towlson - Chief Operating Officer
Alec Towlson brings 20-plus years of sales, pre-sales and operational management experience to the COO role, which has been created especially for him and marks his return to the Company after a five-year absence. Alec’s passion is about delivering applications in the cloud with ground-breaking results and helping customers leverage the power of the cloud without compromising on quality.
Most recently Alec worked at Oracle Corporation (2010-15) dedicated to business transformation, partner alliance, and sales development initiatives within the Western European Sales/pre-sales Supply Chain team.
Alec started his career in Packaging Operations Labelling Change Management specialising in industries with highly regulated label content. He also lead the development and launch of the fledgling company’s flagship Enterprise Artwork Management solution, as well as driving work on the first enterprise version of its automated artwork black box technology.
Ashley Goldie - Sales & Marketing Director
In common with the CEO and operations director, Ashley started out in the artwork studio of a printer. His experience spans the whole of the print, pre-press, artwork creation and creative process, and he has spent some 12 years now focused specifically on the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors.
Ashley specialises in turning vision into reality. Promoting the company’s vision comes easily to him because, in his own words, he has never seen a solution to match it.
Dave Tarbuck - Consulting Services Director
Dave joined The Box Room as a system operator, soon becoming operations manager before moving into a series of client-facing roles. These saw him managing high-profile accounts including Kraft and GlaxoSmithKline. He has worked at global artwork and pre-press company SGS.
Involved with Kallik from the earliest days, Dave brings a vast amount of technical knowledge to the role of operations director. During his time as an account director, he gained a first-hand understanding of clients’ priorities and challenges which he proactively feeds into Kallik’s development strategy.
Dave has a strong track record in managing complex projects and delivering new technologies.
