We would like to congratulate Sam Lockett, who has moved from our hire office to become our Parts Manager.
Sam has now got the task of reorganizing our stores department. Yesterday a whole mezzanine floor level was added. We are also importing some more racking which will then provide us with a full store of service parts for each line in our hire fleet.
Sam will be computerising it so that we do not have to rely on manufacturers for replacement parts, especially when a lot of our parts comes from abroad. The purpose is to be able to give a faster turnaround of breakdowns, both on site and in our workshop. We are working with parts suppliers on stocking arrangements. He will be monitoring stock levels and quantities, reordering stock and liaising with the engineers to make sure they have the correct equipment for the breakdown/refurb.
We believe this will benefit our machine standing time and will also be a huge benefit for our customers. The less time a machine is on a Red Tag then the quicker it can go out on hire.
This is part of our strategy to maintain our strapline, “Experience the Difference”.
We want to wish Sam all the best in his new Role.
