Spring was a season of celebrations for excess inventory management company, Computer Components Ltd (CCL), as three staff members reached the significant milestone of 15 years’ employment with the company. This makes a total of four long-service records this year with the achievement of 20 years by sales director, Vicky Osborn, back in February.
All celebrating their ‘Crystal’ anniversaries, sales manager Jon Burns, finance manager Michelle Upsher and quality inspector Colin Tegg all joined the company in 2003 and have since been invaluable members of the team in their respective departments.
“With each of the departments working closely on a day-to-day basis, the smooth running of each is integral to the company’s success,” says managing director Adam Chinery. “To have had knowledgeable and constant faces over the years has certainly helped in our success. I am always confident that they will get the job done, and with the highest level of customer service.”
Sales manager Jon, who has worked his way up over the years, claims the success may be more to do with the staff perks: “I have enjoyed the last 15 years working at CCL. It has provided its challenges but has also been very rewarding. The obligatory bacon sandwich on a Friday morning has certainly helped!”
Whether it is the communication between departments or the bacon sandwiches, CCL continues its year-on-year growth. To help with the increase of new Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) customers, CCL haveexpanded their team with five new team members over the last year. And the increasing volumes of electronic component overstock being purchased means five more are planned for 2018!
With the increased sales team, the expansion continues through to the accounts department and warehouse. Finance manager Michelle Upsher looks forward to the changes as she reflects on her time at CCL: “It’s been ever evolving and challenging at times. I’ve laughed a lot and continue to really enjoy working with all the CCL team.”
Hot on the heels of so many staff celebrations, new and old, MD Adam Chinery thanks the loyalty of his staff: “I am very honoured to have had so many of my team stay by my side over the past 20 years. I want to congratulate them but also thank them for all their hard work and dedication.”
