Some more awesome colleagues for December who went over and above the call of a normal day and deserve our thanks were
Andrew Saunders, LGV Bulk Cement Class 1 Driver, Rugby Works. Andy cancelled a day’s holiday and extended his working day by agreeing to deliver a last minute load to Swansea.
Chris Brown and Owain Lloyd, Readymix Sales Execs. We have recently re-invigorated our screed business in South Wales by installing specialist screeding sands into our Newport and Swansea Plants. Chris and Owain have undergone extensive product training as these are new products to the guys, and in three months have already grown the business significantly and given great additional value to these Plants.
Jamie Wood, Quarry Operative, Aggs South East Datchet. Jamie took the initiative and reconditioned an old sand plant after the current one at Datchet broke down. They were given a four week lead in time to receive a replacement and Jamie’s actions saved the plant from unnecessary down time until the new replacement arrives.
Rebecca Wright, Commercial Solicitor, Legal. Rebecca played a critical role in negotiating and completing the contract to acquire a new dredger for our Marine business. She worked closely with the CEMEX Marine Director and Operational and Procurement teams in detail and protracted negotiations with the manufacturer.
Siobhan Edgar, Transport Planner, Aggs Supply Chain. Siobhan took control personally of managing supplies and communications to a potential major project in the North East, enhancing our chances of winning this scheme. She received glowing praise from the Sales Rep in her region.
Paul Dale, Springetts Plant Manager. Paul answered a call from colleague, Hannah Collins, to ask if Springetts could do a couple of loads for a new customer. Paul was on annual leave but still took the call and insisted on taking the details and passing them on to the Plant. He even called later in the week (still on holiday) to check the delivery day. He is always helpful and goes above and beyond to ensure his Plant can do whatever is needed to help out.
