CAREER HISTORY

September 2009 to Present AF Safety Supplies

Position Part time Sole Trader

After leaving Moldex I sourced a manufacture of respiratory protection in Sweden and became the sole distributor for the UK. Since then the portfolio has increased to over 4000 products. Including a PPE range and a work wear range from 6 major manufacturers and suppliers. As well as sourcing good suppliers I had to arrange payment terms, pricing, delivery times and ensured that all products meet EU regulations. I also offer a stock management program, taking full control of their stock insuring that the correct products are being used and introducing a cost saving due to the invoice process system, better products, less staff time and all back with a technical support when needed.

Achievements:

Having started with nothing I have grown a small business which is at a level where my wife can take full control of the business concentrating on the stock management sector which has seen the biggest growth month on month. Allowing me the opportunity to return to a full time employed position.

Since my employment with Brammer I have dealt with many manufacturers including SKF UK on many accounts.

Achievements:

When first employed I was given 3 depots to look after and within 6 months I had increased sales by 20%. This was sufficiently enough of an increase making it possible for the area to be split in to 2. I have now taken over two more depots and there is also a small increase in sales.

I have also completed many in house training sessions, as well as the SKF on line training program.
