Library security firm takes on new staff

AN Ipswich firm’s new recruits have a diverse mix of skills

Ipswich-based Plescon Security Products, which supplies security equipment to libraries, has taken on or promoted four members of staff.

Ex semi-professional BMXer Harley Wiles joins as sales and marketing administrator. He has just retired at the age of 27 after 14 years in the profession. The sport has provided him with an unusual mix of sales and marketing knowledge, from bike sponsorship to clothing sales. He has also been interviewed for magazines and even produced his own promotional video.

James Elby has been promoted to sales executive. He joined the company in March 2008 in the sales and marketing administrator role and within a couple of months he was out on the road promoting the company products. In 2009 he was given responsibility for selling KWIK Count Global, Plescon’s innovative people counter. He now focuses on the security side of the business.

Bianca Judd, who joins as senior administrator, is acclimatising herself to the British way of life after recently returning to the UK from Spain. She has worked in many administrative roles both at home and abroad.

James Pavey has been put in control of the warehouse. The 24-year-old, from Colchester, has a background in retail warehousing with experience in companies such as Dunelm Mill.

Managing director Nick Hunt said: “Our new staff members have an excellent mix of skills which will help drive the business forward. It is an exciting time for Plescon as we are about to launch a number of new products and I am confident the team I have around me will ensure the success of the company for the rest of 2010 and in the years to come”.
