To support its growth in international markets and in its own production unit, Pexa has expanded its team with 4 new members.
In our customer services department we are pleased to welcome Robert Balchin who will be taking care of our customers in Spain. His role involves handling our customer’s contracts from technical enquiry right through to product support from our HQ in the UK. Robert graduated with a degree in Spanish and German and has been working in Spain for a few years to develop his know-how of Spain and the Spanish language. Robert said, “I love Spain and my new role with Pexa will give me the chance to support the Spanish Aerospace industry and provide our Spanish customers with a first-class service”.
As part of our commitment to apprenticeships we have created the role of Customer Services Apprentice. This is a training role leading to NVQ level 2 and covers the whole range of administrative tasks needed to support our customers. The UK apprenticeship service hooked us up with local candidate Tom Gray and he has fitted right into our team. Tom said, “I am really enjoying my role at Pexa. I enjoy supporting my colleagues and our customers around the World with admin services. I am particularly keen to master our database of incoming product certificates and test reports so that we can supply a complete data pack to every customer with every order”. Harvey Wright has also joined the team in an apprentice Warehouse Operative role. His duties will involve picking, packing and shipping customer orders as well as handling a wide variety of hazardous classifications.
Our internal production department has grown so that in addition to our busy tint lines for Aerodur and 58 series we have our own speciality coatings lines including Megadex optical lens coatings. This growth meant that we needed a dedicated production supervisor to ensure that we have a safe, efficient process that meets our customer’s tight deadlines. We were lucky enough to secure the services of Chris Swift who worked for 12 years at PPG coatings and arrives with an impressive skill set in paints and coatings production. Chris said, “I’m really pleased to join Pexa at the time they are expanding their paint production facilities. It’s the ideal time to implement excellent procedures for HSE, 5S and lean. I’m looking forward to working with the great existing team at Pexa and doing my bit to help the company succeed in the production of high tech, high value coatings”.
