From Priorslee to Paris – staff spotlight

From Priorslee to Paris – staff spotlight

Every year we deliver hundreds of desk, chairs and other office supplies to businesses across the country – and beyond.

And it is Warehouse Manager Ben Atwal who make sure everything gets to where it is supposed to be.

Ben copyAfter 15 years with Chrisbeon Ben has supervised deliveries of all sizes – and to all sorts of destinations.

“Last year we went to Paris to deliver supplies for a full office,” he says. “The company has branches here in Kidderminster and Cambridge and was opening a new office in France.

“We kitted out both of their UK offices and they wanted to work with us again, so two vans went out to Paris for three days.”

And it is not only furniture the Chrisbeon vans deliver – it came in very useful during a charity bike ride Ben completed for Cancer Research.

He said: “We were doing a charity ride to Barmouth and needed a van to carry all of the kit for the bikers and everything we would need along the way, owners Richard and Craig donated a van for us to use throughout the trip, we couldn’t have done without it.”

When he is not out and about Ben deals with the supplies and the orders, sorts out any problems, returning any damaged items to suppliers and booking in the deliveries.

“We deliver the majority of furniture ourselves or when there are larger jobs the suppliers deliver and we meet them there to make sure everything is correct and goes in the right place,” he adds.

But what is the favourite bit of Ben’s job role?

“It is my job to get all of the furniture out to people so when I get to see how the room looks when the furniture is in it’s great, it transforms the office space and it’s great to know I have had a hand in bringing it all together.”
