Growth spurs recruitment drive

Hurst has created four new roles within its customer service and sales order processing departments, and will soon be recruiting additional factory and office staff to satisfy increased demand, the company has announced.

Mark Atkinson, sales director at Hurst Plastics, said service levels remained high despite a massive increase in business.

“As part of our planned growth strategy, we’ve strengthened our customer service and sales order processing teams to help sustain these service levels and we plan to recruit more new people in preparation for continued growth within the business.”

The new members of Hurst’s customer service team are Estella Precious, Rob Lippiatt, Lianne Storey and Holli Hutchinson.

Hurst’s recruitment programme follows a £650,000 investment in new machinery and delivery vehicles.
