As we continue with this series, we’ll be introducing you to members of our company’s staff. By showing you their typical day, you’ll get an insight into how the internal wheels of i Wall grind and how we work to produce the best service and products possible to deliver on the promises we make to our clients.
In this installment, we meet Will Priestley, Production Director from our Wiltshire Head Office.
Will founded the company 23 years ago and his role as Production Director is fundamental within the manufacturing process. Responsible for the planning and smooth running of production processes within i Wall’s UK manufacturing warehouse, Will knows that when he gets up each day there is going to be a challenging day ahead!
Will leads the manufacturing function within budget and output targets to meet customer requirements and standards. Full accountability for ensuring safety, customer quality, cost and delivery requirements are met. Responsible for developing an enthusiastic, motivated and flexible team by building working relationships ensuring that Health, Safety and Environmental requirements are adhered to.
He manages the team on best practice and continuously establishes standard policies and procedures whilst also mentoring and leading teams. There is always room for improvement and Will successfully implements and manages continuous improvement and modern manufacturing principals by highlighting deficiencies and recommending changes in training, working practices and processes as he is running the warehouse on a day to day basis.
Will divides his time between the warehouse and his office. While in the production area he has to follow established health and safety practices and regulations. When at his desk he focuses on ordering materials, organising project schedules and delivery times so that projects run on time and within budgets.
The production process is completely about teamwork and outstanding communication. At i Wall we are a great team, our warehouse operatives are armoured with years of experience and expertise. They are a fantastic team to work with and this complements i Wall’s philosophy and makes us stand out from others within the industry.
