New recruits boost Dura workforce
I can't stress the value of these meetings enough - not just for sharing plans and generating new ideas to drive the business further forward, but also because they allow members of our growing team to gel further and for different departments to bond.
This element of the day was especially important for us this year due to the fact that we've had the pleasure of welcoming 21 new team members in the last 12 months.
In that time we've more than doubled our size, boosting our current permanent head count to 38 with further temporary staff.
It's a measure of our continuing success that these new faces have been taken on across all areas of the business, including sales, production, finance, transport and administration, and I'd like to thank each and every one of them for their efforts to keep Dura Composites at the forefront of our industry.
One of our latest recruits, Andy Buckingham (pictured), has been taken on as a Key Account Manager with specific focus on the marine sector.
Andy brings with him a wealth of experience in this sector and will be a great point of contact for our clients.
What he doesn’t know about marine is not worth knowing after 12 years with rigging hardware specialist Sta Lok Terminals and a lifetime of sailing stunning yachts around the world.
He also brings with him valuable experience of international business management via agents & distributors, plus direct senior management experience supplying the construction sector at three height access safety product firms.
We are delighted to have him on board, as we are all our recent recruits.
