OUR JOY CELEBRATES 25 YEARS WITH US
We are delighted to congratulate Joy Waplington for being part of the Carlton Forest team for an amazing 25 years!
Having joined the business in 1998 as an office clerk, Joy has enjoyed most of her career in Stock Control before recently being promoted to Logistics Support Manager, recognising her technical expertise and knowledge of the businesses Warehouse Management System (WMS).
Mark Pepper, CEO, Carlton Forest Group commented; “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Joy for all her hard work, friendly personality, and for being such a valued member of our team.
“I can remember when Joy joined the business – the way we work has certainly changed a little since then! Now, it’s especially pleasing to have Joy’s daughter, Jodie, as part of our team too and see the next generation play their part in the business.”
During Joy’s career there have been many changes mainly attributed to the growth of the business and the way that technology is such an intrinsic part of the business’s operations. Indeed, Joy was instrumental in the installation of the first WMS.
“The fact that I have been here 25 years shows how much I enjoy working as part of the Carlton Forest team and being part of such a fantastic business,” said Joy. “Mark and the senior team have always been incredibly supportive of all their employees and given me plenty of opportunity to succeed in roles that I really enjoy.
“As a woman in logistics I’m pleased to say that Carlton Forest has always been a very supportive ambassador for allowing women in the industry to have great careers and continue to ensure all opportunities are awarded on merit.”
Diane Ward, Deputy CEO concluded; “Joy has been an important part of my team since I joined the business and the years have flown by.
“Joy has my sincere thanks and warmest congratulations on this special work anniversary, and I look forward to working with her for many years to come.”
