An increase in the number of customer enquiries has meant growth and expansion for Sierra 57 Consult. With a target to have more effective commercial and engineering qualified professionals covering more ground within resourcing and identifying people solutions, it has secured new team members in key areas.
Additionally, Sierra 57 Consult is expanding its services portfolio within the plastics industry by creating its own Injection Mould Process Engineering Contractors division, offering customers the opportunity to capitalise on filling holes within the mould manufacturing operations and supporting customer demand whilst still actively recruiting for mould setters and technicians.
This division is headed by Technical Director, Kevin Turner, allowing any customer peace of mind that productivity is not impacted and continues to meet end-user deliverables and OTIF (On Time in Full). This also provides clients with the opportunity for the mould contractors to drive lean initiatives across SMED, 5S, as well as upskilling the mould setter and operator workforce.
Sierra 57 Consult will be using Interplas UK to present three new consultants to the plastics industry. Katie Gibbs (pictured left) is already enjoying success with the company and Mark Lawson describes her as “a bubbly and highly animated lady with a great smile, jovial attitude. She is a driven female professional, with customer care as a central focus. Katie’s broad experience across event management, people coaching and apprentice training brings a fresh aspect to the Sierra 57 Consult team. The company is delighted to be supporting her ongoing training in HR practices and protocols.”
Joining the company on the eve of Interplas UK will be accomplished accounting, finance and customer services specialist Jess Salter (pictured centre). Mark Lawson says, “Jess is a naturally good and effective clear communicator, and her attention to detail and commercial exposure together with her love of numbers, makes her a great appointment as part of Sierra 57 Consult’s growth plans.”
Sierra 57’s final introduction is Management Consultant Ivor Griffiths (pictured right). Ivor joins the team after 11 years of developing his career within production management for a busy and high volume automotive assembly business. Involved heavily in exporting safety-critical components to key blue-chip customers and highly knowledgeable with the automotive supply chain and Chinese toolmaking, Ivor’s attention to detailed applications and, most importantly, his ability to understand, manage, develop and empower people will be a huge asset to Sierra 57. Mark Lawson has identified his effective communication and good business and industry acumen and is excited at the benefits he will bring to the team.
Sierra 57 Consult see it as an important factor to support all its team members in their further development, and all the company’s new consultants will be encouraged in the expansion of its skills set.
The team look forward to welcoming visitors to Hall 4, Stand G4 at Interplas and to the opportunity to discuss what they can offer to help you attract and retain the right technical staff for your business.
