Westco has appointed Darren Mercer to the new role of Operations Manager.
Over the next few months, Darren will synchronise the various divisions within the business, coordinating the warehouse function, sales office, procurement, and production departments. Ultimately, Darren will be responsible for maximising operational efficiencies and improving the overall service received by Westco customers.
He will also head up the new Westco Scholarship Programme.
Commenting on his new role Darren said:
“It is a great privilege to be appointed to the brand new position of Operations Manager. Having worked at Westco since 1988 – starting off as a warehouseman – prior to my current role I’d been with the company in my role as Senior Warehouse Manger since 2001, so I have an in-depth knowledge of the business, and the needs and wants of customers.
“As well as focusing on continuous development and evolving our business, I am also proud to be implementing and developing our new Scholarship Programme. An initiative designed to provide Westco with the skills we need in the years to come, while at the same time, offering young adults a rewarding career in the industry. The scheme is a particular passion of mine, having myself benefited from many years working my way up within the business.”
