How long have you been with Ricky Richards?
In words that potential customers, who know nothing about this business will understand, what is your role?
Fabric Testing, fabric specs, quality and new products.
What are your professional strengths in this role?
I am a Textile Chemist with 20+ years experience in the manufacture of industrial textile fabrics.
Thinking back, what was one job that you did really well that you know made a big difference to the results achieved for the customer or your team?
I always endeavour to get back to people with a timely answer, even if on a few occasions, it is not the answer they hoped for.
This enables them to make their choice of product and progress with their project.
If there was one thing that you wished people could understand about the way you fulfil your role, what would it be?
It is far better to source a product that you can be confident is made right, than to test the living daylights out of it after you have got it!
What do you hope to achieve in your role at Ricky Richards?
I hope to provide good technical support to internal and external sales force and do competitive fabric analysis to highlight the advantages of the high quality products we sell.
