HADAR Lighting, specialist manufacturer of lighting for hazardous areas and part of the Ashington-based A-Belco Group, has appointed Rachel Slater as a sales support administrator.
Rachel, who studied travel and tourism at Newcastle College, lives in Ashington and brings valuable customer focused experience of the retail sector to the organisation.
She said: “Hadar Lighting and the whole A-Belco Group is a well respected employer in Ashington and I was delighted to get the chance to join them at such an exciting time when their products are in such demand all over the world.
“One of my earliest challenges was working with my new colleagues at the huge Offshore Europe exhibition in Aberdeen, so it’s been a steep learning curve to get to grips with all the products, especially when we’re dealing with international distributors all across the world.
“My main task is to provide support for our sales team, whether this is helping in the production of marketing material or doing research on particular markets or individual companies.
“The other part is talking to distributors and their customers to ensure we fulfil our promises.
“I love the job and I’m really looking forward to future developments here.”
Hadar has recently been appointed exclusive supplier of LED floodlights to the Gorgon offshore gas project in Australia, the largest such development in the world.
