​Underpinning its ongoing commitment to provide superior quality products and complete customer satisfaction, Calorex continues to strengthen its in-house team.
Newly appointed a new Purchasing Manager, two new Buyers and an internal transfer from their Production Planning department.

​The purchasing team is the backbone of Calorex’s production process, procuring all the materials and components required for the manufacture of the company’s market-leading air and ground source heat pumps and dehumidifiers.

With over 30 years’ experience in purchasing and facilities management, Calorex is delighted to welcome Colin Myers as Purchasing Manager for all direct materials. Colin will head up the team of three buyers and planners developing sourcing strategies and purchasing quantities of parts to support the Calorex production build.
​“My short term goal is to review our processes to reduce complexity and provide consistency,” explains Colin.

“Longer term I intend to drastically reduce the number of suppliers we have, introduce preferred supplier agreements so that ultimately our customers will benefit from superior products at competitive prices.” 
​Colin is joined by new team members Edward Outen, Mark Prentice and Clare Taylor. Buyer Edward is responsible for sourcing products from Asia and Europe such as compressors, fans and motors, while Mark works closely with the planners to ensure that orders are delivered on time with Clare concentrating on internal purchasing and having a key role in implementing new procedures within the IT structure.

Mark comments:
​“Ongoing product designs show that there will always be a Calorex product available to suit every customer’s needs. This allows us to work closely with our supply chain and help to source goods competitively. 

“Technology within the market is also rapidly improving, and there will always be a demand to see how we can better the last product.”
​Calorex’s Managing Director Richard Carrington adds: 
​“We have recently hired some fantastic new people in key roles in the business so that we can continue to innovate and push forward in the market.

“The purchasing department is an essential part of this process and we are delighted to have such a strong and dedicated team.”
