Foster is continuing to develop our award-winning team with the appointment of our new storeman Jack Massey.[caption id="attachment_143" align="aligncenter" width="625"] Jack Massey, our new Storeman[/caption]
Following a successful year in 2015 and straight off the back of our Welding Awards win, the appointment is the latest in a line of investments demonstrating our commitment to future growth and staff development.
His first role in the industry, Jack was keen to take up the position due to Foster Industrial’s commitment to training and development and the opportunities the position presents for future progression. He said, “One of the things that appealed about the role was the chance to work across various parts of the business and learn about the industry on the job. Even in my interview we talked about how I could progress through the business and having that direction from the beginning was really attractive.”
Richard Foster, Joint Managing Director at Foster Industrial, added, “Our team is vitally important – between then they bring more than 80 years’ experience to the business and play a crucial role in upholding our reputation. Foster Industrial celebrates 130 years in business this year and we wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for our team. That’s why we prioritise investment in continuous training and development, to ensure that everyone has the latest industry knowledge and the skills that our customers expect.
“Jack’s appointment was in response to growing demand for our services from businesses across the region. Our managed stock service ‘Weldstock’ is proving extremely popular and one of Jack’s key responsibilities is working with our sales team to ensure its smooth operation.”
