Jewellery manufacturer and supplier Domino has announced the appointment of Jeffrey Reed as materials manager.
In his role as materials manager, Reed will be responsible for scheduling controlling and monitoring the flow of precious metals and other raw materials throughout its production facility. He will also be responsible for ensuring that the highest levels of customer service are maintained for delivery and quality.
Whilst Reed has no previous experience in the jewellery sector he is no stranger to the role he takes on having worked previously in similar posts for a number of British manufacturing businesses making everything from fuel systems for aircraft to mirrors and most recently underwater robots (ROV’s). He is also skilled in lean manufacturing, purchasing, planning and logistics and has team building and management experience.
Speaking about his appointment Reed said: “Making robots was an interesting challenge but I was keen to try a new sector with a much shorter lead time environment. I had very good first impressions of Domino when I came for an interview and I have not been disappointed. It’s great to be working with a committed and genuine team who are making me feel at home immediately.”
Mark Thomas, operations director at Domino, welcomes Reed’s appointment. “I have no doubt that Jeffrey will be a real asset to the company,” said Thomas. “Having worked previously in precision engineering businesses he understands completely the need for rigorous quality control and will bring an eagle eye to bear on operations throughout the production process which can only be good news for our stockists.”
