A MANUFACTURER and supplier of 4x4 accessories, based in Brierley Hill, has met its recruitment targets after it added three new members to its warehouse and production teams to manage increased sales levels.

Over the past seven months Auto Styling Truckman has increased its workforce from 39 to 50, a target it set itself as part of a significant investment in its facilities.

He has more than 15 years of supervisory experience, having worked as a production foreman in specialist warehousing and distribution.

Mr Green 53, of Worcestershire, has joined as a hardtop production finisher and is responsible for ensuring the final product meets the company’s quality standards. He joins from Sealine, a manufacturer of luxury boats, where he worked as a finisher until the company entered liquidation in 2013.

Mr Davies, 23, of Dudley, joined as a warehouse operator. He will be tasked with the picking, packing and dispatch of products that pass through the facility.
