Meet the Installers: Chris Hodgson, Warehouse Manager
11th October 2017, 9:17am
Chris Hodgson, our Warehouse Manager, is taking centre stage for today's Meet the Team feature. Over to you, Chris!
How long have you worked for Godfrey Syrett?
I have been with the business just over 10 years - I started when the company opened the original distribution centre in Spennymoor.
What does your role entail?
My role covers all aspects of the warehouse function, from raw and finished goods delivered into the warehouse, to delivery of goods out using our own delivery fleet and sub contractors. We work for continuous improvement on stock accuracy (using cycle counting), and manage the re-use of returned products, i.e. samples. I am responsible for staff over two shifts in a warehouse which operates for 17 hours a day, Monday to Friday.
What is your favourite part of your job?
The most enjoyable part of my role is achieving a great end result for both the customer and staff alike, whist also helping staff enjoy their day-to-day work.
What is the one thing you could not live without?
Easy, my phone - I like to be able to connect with friends and family.
Complete the sentence: outside of work, I can most often be found...
Spending time with the family - either watching my daughter Phoebe horse riding, or swimming with my son Finlay.
