Chris Allen


Stores Manager

“With 48 years’ experience in stores and transport management I feel that I am well qualified to carry out the duties I have at the moment. Now into my 19th year at H E Barnes, the job keeps me on my toes with no let-up otherwise I would be very quickly left behind.

At 64 years old my brain is never allowed to get stagnant as it is such a busy environment, which suits me. However, the stores I managed in 1970 were 600 times larger than my present one and the stores at the Yorkshire Electricity were spread over 19 acres but neither of these were as busy as the ones I run at the moment.
