Following two years of record growth in sales, garden giftware company, Fallen Fruits has expanded its workforce to handle the increase in business.
Lawson Jay has been appointed as warehouse supervisor and Katie Dexeter has joined the company as mail order manager. Lawson has worked with Countrywide Stores and also has considerable experience in automotive industry warehousing. In his new role he will be managing an extensive and growing pick and pack operation. Katie, who has a degree in web design and was previously with Gtech, has been appointed to run the mail order part of the business with a brief to facilitate and develop this discrete and also growing part of the business.
The new appointments follow on from a 19 percent growth in turnover year on year for the financial year 2014/15, preceded by a 24 percent growth figure for the previous financial year.
Commenting on the recent recruitment, managing director Michael Hall said, “We have increasing sales in the garden centre channel, largely attributable to massive repeat orders of existing lines. Mail order custom is also strong and we see the appointments of Lawson and Katie as the perfect way to nurture our growth and ensure our new and existing customers are well looked after. We offer perfect lifestyle choices for style conscious garden centre shoppers as well as ideal gift options, even including wedding or setting up home potential. Fallen Fruits has fantastic appeal for both gardening enthusiasts and consumers who just want to enjoy their outdoor space.”
