Just when you thought we couldn’t get any bigger
we go and open a brand new outbase!
We’ve opened yet another depot in the South of England, and this time it’s in Basildon!
For those of you who need to brush on your geography, Basildon is just to the right of London on the map, and whilst we already have 2 depots covering both the North and South of the capital, Basildon will give us the perfect foothold to deliver to the rest of the South East.
In the hot seat is Star Programme pupil Gareth Stephens. He joins a growing list of Stars who have moved on to become Depot managers (with Karl Williams now in managing at Crewe, Shaun Carter at Leeds, and Gregory Cole in Potters Bar), and he will report directly to experienced area manager Adrian Hasson
It will no doubt be a steep learning curve for Gareth, and we wish him the best of luck in our shiny new depot.
But the hard work began long before the doors opened for our first delivery this morning, and we want to thank everyone who helped get the site up and running, especially Matthew Beardmore and Simon Ratcliffe. Their hard work and dedication meant the site was turned around in just 3 weeks. Website value Their efforts, as well as everyone else’s are greatly appreciated.
Thank you again to everyone involved. We’re sure base number 10 will be just as amazing as the other 9. Welcome to the family Basildon!
