AMCO’s Managing Director Don Mucci commented, “these appointments signify our absolute commitment to aligning our Board’s expertise with the company’s strategic vision of continuing to develop our logistics offering to further support existing and new customers. Each of these board members has a wealth of knowledge, experience and thought leadership that will be highly valuable as we execute our plans for further growth in the future and as we look to expand our customer base into new sectors’.
Coinciding with the new Board announcement is the news that AMCO have implemented a new strategy in terms of their logistics teams and have relocated everyone into their 110,000 sqft flagship distribution centre in the UK Midlands, AMCO Park. Sales Director Paul Andrews said, “it’s fantastic to now have the operations team under one roof. Our teams can work faster and communications are clearer and swifter. Despite working under COVID-19 rules and socially distancing, we have already seen the benefits in the first few weeks in terms of great morale and an uplift in our already strong customer service KPI’s. We expect this move to one location, one team, to increase our productivity further as well a develop a deeper team culture moving forward.”
