Rick’s job at Vufold is essentially to make sure everything runs smoothly across the business. That’s why he’s an expert in lean practices and principles, and how they’re applied to manufacturing, warehouse, administration and management of the business. Part of his role is to always look at the bigger picture, and at how he can constantly improve the way things are done – as does every member of the team he works with – and he knows our business inside out, as he’s worked his way up through virtually every department.
Rick joined us 13 years ago, having spent 22 years working with a local specialist exhaust manufacturer, and started in our warehouse – in fact, he still prefers driving a forklift on occasion to looking at spreadsheets. From there, he moved up through the business, understanding every facet as he went – invaluable for the role he does now. Among his proudest achievements during his time here are transforming our business by implementing a fully integrated website, order processing, CRM and warehouse management system…plus the fact that 97% of reviewers recommend Vufold.
Outside work, Rick has a lifelong passion for all things automotive (and spends much of his spare time keeping his current car spotless), as well as watching, supporting and coaching rugby (Under-15s) in Macclesfield. He’s also something of a mean chef, hosting pizza-making parties and is renowned for creating spectacular sandwiches.
