Published:  11 May, 2016

WJ Group welcomes John Cook to its Hull site, in the new role of operations manager. A third generation engineer, Mr Cook has enjoyed many senior operations management roles, most recently managing product teams in manufacturing environments.

Bringing experience in lean manufacturing and world class operations with him, Mr Cook is poised to help optimise many parts of WJ Group’s manufacturing processes and operations across the sites in Hull and Rochester.

Mark Eggleston, WJ Group managing director, said: “As the company goes from strength to strength in terms of production, so too must the people and skills behind it. Mr Cook is a welcome addition to the team and we expect to learn a great deal from his experience and knowledge. As the company continues to develop, we will create further new roles across the company to ensure that we can serve our customers to the best of our ability.”
