Tadmarton appoints logistics manager and trader

Tadmarton Products, the Oxfordshire-based independent meat wholesaler has announced the appointment of two new members of staff.

Kimberly Hicks joins Tadmarton in the role of trainee trader. As a newcomer to the meat industry, Hicks will be spending time learning every aspect of Tadmarton’s operation, including supporting the sales team, taking and processing orders, and liaising with customers.

Julie Taylor is Tadmarton Product’s new operations co-ordinator. Her responsibilities include transport management, delivery scheduling, vehicle maintenance and health and safety risk assessment. Taylor’s career in logistics started in 1997 and, prior to joining the Tadmarton team, she was a logistics manager for a national company delivering branded beer to pubs and bars across the UK.

Tadmarton said it was aiming to increase turnover by 35% over the next three years, and trading figures show sales in 2010 are already ahead of target. 

It said the appointment of Hicks and Taylor is part of the company’s plans to sustain its growth and ensure continuing high standards of customer service. In addition, four new members of cutting room staff have been recruited in 2010 to help meet the demand for Tadmarton Products’ hand-cut chicken fillets and joints. 

Steve Harper, Tadmarton Products sales director, said: “Growing a business in the current economic climate is challenging, but we’re determined to buck the trend and achieve our goals. While other companies are cutting back, new appointments are essential if we want to achieve the level of growth needed by 2013. Both Kimberly and Julie are great assets to the Tadmarton team.”
