Here at HMK, we recognise that our workforce is one of our greatest strengths, enabling us to provide expert knowledge and first-class service to our customers, alongside our market-leading products.
The HMK Team is expanding and we’ve recently recruited new Digital Sales Executive Hannah Seabridge, who works with both our existing and prospective customers to help generate sales and support our customers across digital platforms.
Gary Kitchin, Managing Director at HMK Automation, said: “The pandemic has accelerated the rate of change in our working practices and advancements in digital technologies have supported this. Whilst face-to-face visits with customers still have their place, this traditional way of working is looking distinctly analogue in today’s digital world.
“We’re seeing an increased demand for efficiency and here at HMK, we are also committed to reducing our environmental impact, so these are both key drivers in creating this new position, and Hannah brings lots of experience to the role, so we know our customers, new and existing, will be in safe hands.”
