Burnley, Lancashire (PRWEB UK) 31 October 2013
James Hargreaves Plumbing Depot - set to open a new £250,000 branch on Lake Enterprise Park next month - has put 28-year-old Chris Lee, from Morecambe, at the helm.
The promotion comes just eight months after Chris, a former pupil at Morecambe High School, helped the firm open a branch in nearby Garstang.
"Chris proved a more than capable assistant at Garstang; he was excellent in helping the branch to become established very quickly and has earned the right to this opportunity. He has experience and enthusiasm and we firmly believe that he is the perfect fit for Lancaster," said Martin Healy, area manager at James Hargreaves Plumbing Depot. "Lancaster has been on our radar for some time and we have found a great location; very busy and accessible."
Chris just cannot wait to put his stamp on the 34th branch of the fast-expanding James Hargreaves Plumbing Depot chain, where he will be assisted by Aaron Parker, 25, also from Morecambe and an ex-student at Our Lady's High School in Lancaster.
"We are both relatively young, but Aaron and I have a total of 20 years' experience in the plumbing and heating industry," said Chris. "More than that we have extensive local knowledge - there are around 200 plumbers in the area and we reckon to know the vast majority already."
"James Hargreaves Plumbing Depot is moving forward at quite a pace and having worked with them at Garstang I know just how things tick and the commitment to product, value and service."
When the Lancaster branch opens in early November, Chris and Aaron are lining up a series of welcome breakfast events where local plumbers and heating engineers will have the chance to pop in, enjoy some hospitality and also have the chance to win some great prizes.
