Howells’s sales team, both new and long standing, have to complete a rigorous training schedule before being able to deal with customers. The scheme involves the team spending time in the business’s manufacturing plant, physically constructing their products. Once the sales team has an understanding of Howell’s manufacturing process, they then move on to working with the fixing teams to understand the parameters of the materials and job specifics of the contracts. This demanding training scheme allows the sales team to fully understand Howell’s offering and fulfill our customers’ needs, with an unrivaled approach.
Tracey Jackson, Marketing Manager at Howells Patent Glazing said, “our Cradley Heath based manufacturing firm have technical departments in both the supply only and estimating/construction departments, and our staff often receive queries regarding how to achieve the best results using our product. The logical step for us was to offer our advice and knowledge openly those who may need a little help. As a firm we are committed to excellence and this year, for the very first time, we have entered the Express and Star awards for Business of the Year and Family Business of the Year. 2016 has already been phenomenal for new business and we hope that the rest of the year will be equally as successful”.
Gary Howells, Director at the firm, has been with Howells since he left school and has travelled through all of the manufacturing departments to now head the sales division. He has first-hand knowledge of the systems that Howells use, as he had a major influence on the design and application of the bars. He has also installed the systems, so understands the full requirements of the bars, how they perform and has vision to understand where they need to evolve.
Dave Bennett, General Manager, has over 30 years’ experience in the firm. Beginning his career as a draftsman, and then joining Howells as an estimator 20 years ago, he has proved his worth time and time again by project managing contracts from £2,000 through to £1,000,000.
