New appointment leads drive for lean operations

Trevor Cartwright joins Shackletons in role of operations director

A new appointment sees leading furniture manufacturer, Shackletons, expand its team with Trevor Cartwright taking the role of operations director.

Cartwright comes to Shackletons from his previous role as operations director at the YTM Group and will be responsible for building the company’s established reputation as a premier supplier of quality furniture.

Ensuring continuous improvement and consistency within the company’s service and production processes, Cartwright will adopt a clear strategy to drive change through a ‘lean philosophy’ implementation.

Cartwright said: “Successes are achieved by team members working in harmony and driving in the same direction.

“It’s nice to be part of a successful team knowing that the people around you have the same drive and commitment.

Shackletons have a positive approach and a strong core team that rise to the challenges – I have never heard anyone say ‘that can’t be done’ and that’s what I like, a positive approach.”

He will drive the company’s ‘lean’ business policy ensuring it is applied, understood and embedded as ‘second nature’ and a way of thinking for all within the company.
