Franky Blakey joins Green-tech as the operations co-ordinator, an important role which oversees Green-tech's hundreds of daily orders from sales through to delivery.

Blakey has a background in haulage and farming and has moved from a sales administrator role at Land Rover. 

She said: "I’m loving working at Green-tech. It’s fast-paced and great fun. Operations is such a busy department and I’ve got to juggle the needs of the sales team, the customer, the warehouse and the haulage companies."

School leaver George Goodier is the latest apprentice to join Green-tech. He is undertaking a Business Administration apprenticeship operated through Tyro Training, the commercial training division of Craven College. 

George’s apprenticeship will see him working in the operations, production and dispatch departments. He said,

The positions have all been created to meet demand as Green-tech continues to grow. The company said it will continue to recruit to meet the company’s ambitious growth plans of reaching £20 million turnover by 2020.

Now the Green-tech team stands at 68.  Blakey and Goodier join Roland Rollinson, Arron Grange and Niki Westbury who have all recently joined the sales team as technical sales advisors.
