Damian Dugdale (centre) starts at KKI as an expeditor responsible for managing supplier purchase orders and expediting orders for spare parts. He previously managed purchasing and expediting processes at Edmund Bell Fabrics and was responsible transport planning and stock control for the Clipper Group.

“The three new employees have a wealth of manufacturing experience and will prove to be valuable assets to KKI.”
