McIntosh & Son Katanning has appointed Brydie Creagh as its new parts manager and it will be a learning curve for the company and Brydie as she oversees a unique role in the dealership’s redeveloped parts hub.
Hailing from a farming family in Ongerup and with an agronomic background, Brydie can now claim to manage the biggest dealership parts division in Australia with 7500 parts lines.
It is also one of the most technology-advanced parts warehouses with a computer system that instantly recognises parts and their location, providing parts interpreters with a faster process to meet customer requests.
Naturally Brydie is “stoked” to have such a responsible job.
“I feel very lucky to be given such an opportunity and while it is mostly an automated process in identifying and retrieving a part, the division is very multi-faceted and designed to meet the needs of our branches and our major franchises who have taken the opportunity to store parts such as engines and transmissions in the warehouse,” she said.
Brydie is one a growing number of young people seeking career pathways in the farm mechanization industry.
