Leading door and loading bay manufacturer Hörmann has added to its projects team with the appointment of Karen Garnham, following an increase in demand for industrial installations.
Karen joins as project manager, handling all aspects of an order from the initial site survey, through to product delivery. An experienced contracts and operations manager, Karen is helping the Hörmann team to handle rising orders while maintaining a strong focus on customer service.
Although the new role is focussed on industrial installations, Karen is also an expert in the manufacturer’s domestic products, having spent four years working for The Garage Door Centre in Wellingborough.
Karen commented: “I’ve wanted to work for Hörmann for some time, so this is a wonderful opportunity for me. I know first hand how good the products are, having overseen their installation for a number of years. It’s exciting to now be working on commercial projects and helping to ensure a smooth process from order to delivery.”
Hörmann is continuing to grow following a successful end to 2014, which saw the company achieve an increase in turnover of over 10 per cent. With industrial projects having a notable impact on this figure, Karen’s appointment is an important move to further strengthen the department.
David Newcombe, managing director, said: “Karen is an asset to the Hörmann team and we’re very pleased to have her on board. She already has a strong knowledge of our domestic product range and that, combined with her operational experience, will no doubt help her to thrive.”
With 2015 looking set to be another busy year for the manufacturer, Hörmann is planning to add further new recruits over the coming months.
