Karen Slack, Senior Project Manager, Supply Chain, Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited says: “We operate an end-to-end process, which encompasses everything from when the customer first places their order, right the way through to unpacking, installation and removal of their old machine and packaging, for 100 per cent recycling. We are delighted with these nominations, they truly endorse our operating excellence approach and our dedication to moments that matter, it embodies the hard-work of everyone in Whirlpool UK’s logistics team.”
