50 not out! Christine and Dawn rack up a half century at JET PRESS

Added 03.08.21



Between them Christine and Dawn have just achieved 50 years of service with JET PRESS and we hope they will be with us much longer still.  Dawn celebrates 30 years at JET PRESS and Christine has been with us for 20 years. 


From Materials to Export 

Dawn joined us in 1991 when JET PRESS was only selling to customers in the UK. One day Barry, the MD at the time, asked Dawn if she could arrange for a consignment to be sent abroad. JET PRESS has been exporting ever since - now to over 50 countries. 

As head of our warehouse operation Dawn is responsible for ensuring that all our valued customers get the right goods on time. This has certainly been a challenge in the last few months, with disruptions caused by COVID and Brexit. Not to mention ships getting stuck in the Suez Canal! 

The whole team at JET PRESS has worked on ways to overcome these challenges. We now have a number of measures in place, including a Czech Republic warehousing facility.


Multilingual Customer Service  

In 2001 Christine joined our Export Customer Services and has been working with customers ever since. She processes orders and enjoys solving problems for our customers. When she started with JET PRESS she was involved in Sales and Customer service. She is now responsible for her own set of accounts, mainly automotive accounts based in Germany.  

Christine is keen to point out that although she was born in Germany it was in a British Military Hospital, so she is officially British. Her upbringing does mean she is fluent in English and German and even has a little Italian. 

COVID and BREXIT have had an impact on Christine’s customers but she is proud of the way JET PRESS has responded. “We have met our customers’ needs, learning all the time. We’ve taken positive steps in the in the way we are dealing with the new challenges. Every day is different!” Christine is also a fan of the recent upgrades in the JET PRESS building and the new software upgrades. 



DIY Defenders and Wolves 

Dawn and Christine are both involved in big home improvement projects when they are not at work. When she is not busy with work or DIY Christine likes spending time with the family, walking and going out on her bike with her partner. 

Dawn ran the Notts Land Rover Club for several years and she has been involved in training and breeding German Shepherd Dogs in the past. She also loves wolves!
