In our latest installment of the Meet The Team series, we caught up with the newest recruit at APECS, Emily, the Office Assistant. If you call the office or drop in, Emily is likely to be the first person that you'll speak to you!
How is your day going?
It's going very well thank you, a rather busy day so far processing a lot of orders and helping customers with their enquiries.
When did you join APECS?
I joined in October 2019.
What were you doing before you joined APECS?
I was studying Philosophy and Ethics at the University of Chichester and I graduated in 2019.
Is this your first role within the industry?
Yes it is! It’s my first job since graduating from university too, so it is quite different to my previous jobs, but it is a fun challenge.
What do you at APECS?
I am the Office Assistant, and so I take care of all incoming orders, customer queries, assist with any tasks that need to be carried out, and overall just maintain a very smooth running office by keeping everything that we need in stock.
I’ve always worked with the customers in my previous jobs and so being the first point of contact at APECS is something I am very used to and have really enjoyed throughout every job I’ve had.
What is something you are particularly proud of from your time with APECS?
Winning the Hardware Company of the Year Award at the National Locksmith Awards 2019 was an amazing achievement for the company. Although I had only been at APECS for just over a month at the time, it was lovely to see how ecstatic the team were when they won the award. You could really see how much hard work they put into the company and it paid off!
What do you like most about working at APECS?
My colleagues make working at APECS enjoyable, we all get along and have a good laugh. It is also great to see the company growing and advancing. Even in just the short time I’ve been here the company has gone from strength to strength which is really exciting to see.
What are you excited about in 2020?
To see what APECS becomes in 2020 - as a growing company it is a really exciting time for APECS and I can’t wait to see it expand into a thriving business that we’re all really proud to be a part of.
How do you see the company growing in 2020?
I see APECS growing into a thriving business, we have recently opened another factory and as a result we have expanded, not only the amount of products we are manufacturing, but also the type – with some very exciting ones which are currently in the process of being made!
Plus, after winning the Hardware Company of the Year 2019 we have a lot to aspire to in 2020!
"Their 3-star cylinder range has become our go-to product to offer homeowners and the quick turn-around on orders has been a big help to our business"
"Working with APECS has been great. They are both friendly and professional to deal with and all of the products we have used have been of the highest quality."
