New leadership for PHS Teacrate

Jul 04, 2013
Gordon Philip has taken over the leadership of crate rental specialist, PHS Teacrate, following the departure of Managing Director, David Wicks.

The company said that during his 11 years service with the PHS Group, David Wicks’ contribution has been immense.  For the last 8 years he has led PHS Teacrate and from 2008 has also overseen the rapid growth of PHS Records Management. He has been responsible for the development and growth of PHS Teacrate including the acquisition of manufacturing tooling from Rehrig Pacific UK Ltd.  David has left the PHS Group to pursue other professional and personal interests.

Gordon Philip took over on 1 May, 2013.  He has been involved with the business for 20 years, the last two years of which as its commercial director.  During that time he controlled many significant phases of PHS Teacrate’s growth including the development of several innovations such as Cratelink (Teacrate’s online crate management system), the diversification into the supply of packaging materials, the development of e-commerce offerings to both its customer base and the general public and, more recently, the placing of customer service at the core of Teacrate’s strategy.

Gorgon said his main challenge for the company was: “To achieve continued growth in this difficult economic climate by maintaining Teacrate’s unrivalled service delivery and to be the best in class in terms of customer service and support.  I want to see Teacrate’s contribution making a real difference to our customers’ operations – making them stronger and more successful.”
