WES have recently appointed a new Technical Buyer to improve the management of the supply chain and reduce costs where possible. Gareth Jenkins joins the company from a senior purchasing position at Screwfix UK and has hit the ground running with a series of highly effective cost reduction initiatives.

“As a response to the current economic climate we have appointed Gareth to review our purchasing procedures and highlight areas where we may be able to reduce costs without affecting the quality of the end product.” said Andrew Hosking, Managing Director.

"The effective sourcing and delivery of raw matierials is a crucial part of our production planning process and enables us to get finished components to our customers on-time, commented Gareth. Through increased lean manufacturing initiatives we aim to reduce stock whilst improving material availability when needed"

Gareth is also tasked with extending our resistance welding product range by developing strategic relationships with industry partners who can offer complimentary products and services. This will allow WES to provide a more complete service with comprehensive coverage of resistance welding consumables and equipment.
