Wessex Appoints New Warehouse Manager
We are proud to announce that we have hired janitorial sector Warehouse Manager veteran and IOSH certified, Andy Penny, to the position of Warehouse Manager to transform our warehouse efficiency and develop the function in line with the companies environmental, sustainability and digital transformation goals.
Andy’s 27-years’ experience in the janitorial sector managing Warehouse operations has seen achievements such as reshaping his previous janitorial companies from single depot to developing into multi-site distribution centres with rigorous health and safety process implementation to minimise employee risk and improved productivity by transforming warehouse effectiveness by over 130% through his autonomy-first, structured mindset to warehouse management.
Andy’s passion for reducing the impact that a warehouse function has on the environment has also led him to introduce initiatives such as 100% recycled, and recyclable packaging for all product lines, and overhauling paper-based processing in favour of lower polluting and more efficient digital systems; a vision that Wessex shares and is in the roadmap for 2021/22.
The new hire comes at a significant time for Wessex as we begin gearing up for the next phase of our operational development strategy which will see our entire organisation take a digital-first stance to improve accuracy across the board, reduce environmental impact further in line with our goals for carbon naturality, and deliver our customers a much-enhanced level of service.
Andy’s hire also comes with an increase of staffing to the warehouse by 50% over the past three months, as well as a series of new administrative hires to ensure Wessex customers offer their clients the highest possible service.
