Kolibri stories | Our inventory management hero, Jeffrey

Kolibri Company experienced growth twelve years ago, resulting in a new position becoming available. This position was filled by Jeffrey. His responsibilities include purchasing production materials and inventory management. A big job, because because of the Kolibri Home collection we have more than 2000 pallets in our storage. Curious about his work? Then get to know Jeffrey in this blog.

Been there for 12 years Kolibri
''My adventure started 12 years ago Kolibri. I originally applied for a sales position, but was ultimately hired for another position. The company was growing rapidly and there was a need for extra manpower, which created a position as a buyer, for which I can almost celebrate my 12,5 year anniversary!''

Role as a buyer
''As a buyer I am responsible for managing the stock materials at Kolibri. These are a lot of materials for various production departments, but also for offices or printed matter such as catalogues. Also consider materials such as pot covers, sticks and covers for the Kolibri Orchids and office supplies such as paper and envelopes. I also keep track of stock in our inventory management, because with us Kolibri We have a large stock of our home range. It is important to keep track of this so that there are enough decorative pots to send with the orders. I also help our labor planner with keeping track of our time registration Kolibri staff.''

A typical day at Kolibri
“Like many, I start my day with coffee and checking the hours of our employees. I start every day at my computer to answer emails from suppliers and request new quotes. Keeping track of stock is also a daily task and I regularly check whether stock management is still correct. Here I check whether the new stock will be delivered on time and whether there is sufficient space available in our warehouse. If this is not correct, we will have to find a solution with the team to free up space."

your favorite Kolibri Orchids are…
''Bee Kolibri We only have beautiful orchids 😉, so it's difficult to choose a favorite."

A striking period
“For me, the period around the end-of-year count stands out. Many employees are on holiday, so there is less staff available to count the stock. This does not concern two pallets with decorative pots, it could involve 2000 pallets. Inspections are carried out by external companies at the end of the year, so everything has to be correct. With more than 2000 pallets of ceramics, covers, pot covers and more, this is a huge job."

Developments
''Because of internal shifts within Kolibri, I am assigned more and more tasks. For example, I am now responsible for the time registration of our employees and I make plans for our team. The best thing about my job are the career opportunities that the company makes possible. Working in a young and driven team also makes it fun Kolibri nice. We work well together and bring out the best in each other.”
