David is another example of WH Kemp’s exemplary team loyalty. After 30 years working in all areas of the business, there’s not much he doesn’t know about the technical and intricate processes of manufacturing reliable Control Box builds and Cables Assemblies. In acting as WH Kemp’s Commercial Manager, David liaises closely with our customers, preparing transparent competitive quotes and providing regular clear, sound advice.
He is also responsible for WH Kemp’s New Product Introduction Process, ensuring all new business projects adhere to customers’ specific requirements.
During his 15 years with WH Kemp, Ben has been responsible for several different functions. His breadth of knowledge regarding many aspects of our business therefore makes him an integral member of the team. In recent years, Ben’s focus has been as WH Kemp’s Buyer. He regularly assesses whether the business is holding the necessary materials and stock in order to complete customers’ orders efficiently and on time – a case of ensuring the right materials are in the right place at the right time.
To that end, Ben works closely with not only our Wire Harness and Control Panel customers, but also suppliers, production and our logistics team.
