Starting September with two new members

The past 2 years has seen extraordinary growth for Cleveland Containers, the business has grown by over 70%, with record levels of turnover and profit 2 years running. Last year we sold just short of 7,000 shipping containers nationwide which is tremendous credit to our team with everyone working hard towards our goal of being the UK’s number one supplier of new and used shipping containers.

This growth has continued in 2018 which has allowed us to expand our team further adding a new sales manager and marketing assistant.

Our new marketing assistant Katie Wheeler, who joined us at the start of September, has just completed her MA in Future Design at Teesside University. Katie will allow us to increase our online presence on social media and bring some fresh ideas for our website and other marketing activities.

We asked Katie, what she likes about her new role so far.

‘I love my job role, it is super busy and I’m excited to grow and develop in my career at Cleveland Containers’.

How have you found your time at Cleveland Containers so far?

‘It is an amazing place to be, everyone always has a smile on their face and they are all super helpful. I am so glad to be a part of Cleveland Containers’.

Matthew Lennox joins our sales team as our 6th sales manager. Coming from a sales background Matthew has settled in well and quickly got to grips with all things shipping containers and already has sales on the board.

We also asked Matthew Lennox, what do you like about the role?  

‘I like the freedom the job gives you to be yourself & how it motivates you to push yourself and improve’.

How have you found your time at Cleveland Containers so far?  

‘I have really enjoyed it. There was a lot to take in to begin with, but the team have been so helpful and friendly which has eased me into the role’.

We asked Johnathan Bulmer, Managing Director of Cleveland Containers his thoughts on the recent additions to the team.

“We are pleased to welcome Matthew & Katie to Cleveland Containers during an exciting time for the business. Over the past few years the business has seen tremendous growth allowing us to continually strengthen each department”.  

“Matthew has joined our sales team dealing with new enquiries and has already started to build his customer list with sales already coming through”.  

“Katie has joined our marketing team to help increase our online presence on social media and help with other areas of our marketing activities which will help keep us ahead of our competition”.

All of the staff here at Cleveland Containers wish Matthew and Katie all the best with their future at the company.
