EXPANSION LEADS TO NEW ROLE AT HUGHES ELECTRICAL
Tuesday, July 5, 2016

Mark Swash 1As part of its continuing expansion programme Hughes Electrical has appointed Mark Swash to the new position of logistics & distribution manager.

He will be based at the company’s 60,000 sq ft warehouse and distribution centre in Thetford which has nearly 50 employees and houses over 4,000 different lines of electrical equipment.

“I am really looking forward to my new challenge with a company that is clearly going places,” said Mr Swash. “I was offered a number of positions but Hughes was the one I really wanted.

“My immediate priority is to carry out a full assessment of the warehouse, its facilities, stock control systems, functionality, dispatch of goods and how they are transported by our own vehicles to 50 locations throughout East Anglia, Midlands and the South East.”

Mr Swash has considerable experience in logistics and distribution having previously had a similar role for the largest frozen food plant in the UK for five years. He worked in Holland for nearly ten years together with a spell in Australia and speaks both Dutch and German.

Said Hughes sales director, Andy Pallant, “As a company we are growing rapidly with an annual turnover of well over £100m. That growth means we need to bring in experienced people with the right skills to ensure we continue to grow in the most profitable way possible.

“With 50 physical locations around the UK to service, plus a thriving online business logistics & distribution are becoming increasingly important which has led us to appoint Mark to this new position and we are confident he will make a valuable contribution to the future success of Hughes.”

Mark Swash lives in Huntington and is a keep fit enthusiast.
