ROCK Fall UK Ltd, specialist safety footwear manufacturer, has strengthened its management team with the addition of a new role, Quality Assurance and Compliance Manager.
Rock Fall’s senior management team are delighted to welcome Carol Harris who joins Rock Fall with a wealth of industry experience.
Speaking about the appointment, Richard Noon, Director said: “Carol joins us at an exciting time, we have witnessed several record-breaking years in terms of growth and 2019 is going to be another outstanding year for Rock Fall. Carol’s previous roles with several blue-chip retailers in the UK and her experience in setting up Quality Assurance and Compliance systems for several household names gives Rock Fall a fantastic advantage and promotes confidence for our distributors when supplying top quality footwear to the end user. We are proud to have been ahead in adopting the recently updated PPE regulations and are very eager to excel in this area.”
Rock Fall has heavily invested in a new warehouse expansion programme and by the end of 2019 will see a significant increase in pallet capacity, broadening support for their distributors with an ever-expanding stockholding. This exhilarating new phase will create 10 new positions within the company and is bucking the current trend of other manufacturers who are reducing staff levels. Moving forward, 2020 will see Rock Fall’s brand-new testing facility which will be furnished with state-of- the- art testing equipment, so that products can be tested internally to ensure they perform well beyond the Standards and will conquer the challenges faced by today’s wearers.
