Karen’s career at Komfort spans 37 years and saw her celebrate her 21st, 30th, 40th & 50th birthdays with her colleagues, as well as her engagement and marriage. Over that time she has seen Komfort evolve and adapt through the decades, and has over the years, and presently works with some amazing people.
When she started the company was celebrating its 1st million pound profit and she witnessed the £100m+ turnover in subsequent years. At its height the offices, manufacturing and warehousing occupied 10 units, employing over 300 people and with a fleet of 20+ lorries delivering all over the UK, establishing Komfort as a leading UK partitioning brand.
All of this at Whittle Way, where the company consolidated its Crawley workforce earlier this summer – and where Karen can see the actual spot that she sat on her very 1st day at Komfort.
She knows the product range inside out and has complete confidence in the quality of engineering, manufacture and ethos of continuous innovation. However, it is the level of customer service that she thinks is unique, and she knows this keeps customers coming back to where their word is their bond.
Outside work Karen is a keen fitness freak, mainly “Bouncefit Body on a trampoline and PT. She also enjoys travel and is looking forward to a Nile cruise later this year. However, she also enjoys coming back home, to Komfort.
