To enhance our service levels, in September last year we decided to increase our stock to a 3 month stock holding. As a result, we have received in excess of 200 containers since the beginning of this year, with total stock valued at £27 million (inc. vat).
Getting to this point was not an easy task given the constraints on supply throughout the pandemic. Our Supply Chain Manager, Keith McGrath and his team rose to the challenge and have worked tirelessly to achieve our desired stock holding.
For Keith, the devil is in the detail. He is a whizz on Excel and his analytical skills are second to none. He divides his time between analysing spreadsheets and taking regular walks of our warehouses. Continuous improvement is always at the forefront of everything he does. Keith is a huge asset to the MyLife team.
The good news is we have plenty stock ready to go as soon as our retail partners resume normal business activity.
