Tradelink Direct is pleased to welcome Gary Kempster as IT Manager. Joining the world class manufacturer of doors, windows, conservatories and sealed units, Gary comes from a background of working in blue chip global companies including in a Directorial position.
Gary explains: “I decided to make the switch from the larger blue chip companies to a medium manufacturing business to leave the blue chip politics behind but lean is in my blood and I was keen to move to a true world class manufacturer. In the IT world lean means building solutions into the business networks before they are needed and sometimes even creating new systems to meet specific needs. This is exactly what I have done with the team at Tradelink to further improve efficiencies at their March and Mildenhall manufacturing sites as well as at their two Windowcenter operations.”
Jim Moody, Managing Director of Tradelink adds: “Gary has made a significant impact on Tradelink’s business already. One of the first things he did was conduct a comprehensive staff survey to establish where everyone’s frustrations with IT lie so he could set about making their lives easier. Coming from much larger lean manufacturers than us, Gary clearly has experience that we can benefit from and a completely fresh perspective on the way we have always done things in the window industry as a whole.”
