Chris has been with us at the factory for a total of 10 years. He is in charge of all of our shipments. Chris sets up shipping labels, makes sure that orders are leaving on time and with the right boards for the order. He also boxes a lot of these orders, prints logos on boards, installs pads and fin sets, and runs our online store. Chris also helps order fins and pad sets to make sure we are stocked for all the orders going out. You will find Chris running around like crazy with all these tasks, but he is on top of his game and gets everything out safely and on time.
Dave has been with Phase 5 for the past 2 years and is a great asset in our shipping department. Dave is an all around utility worker like Chris. You can find Dave boxing boards, installing pads and fins sets, printing logo's on boards and also helping Dianne with quality control at times. Dave also sets up pallets for big orders that have to go out on trucks.
The two of these guys stay slammed in the shipping room. They not only box all the Phase 5 orders, they are also in charge of all of the Zap Skimboard orders that need to go out. Because of these guys, all of our customers and dealers receive their boards with no shipping damage or issues.
Here is a new shipment of boards showing up at Strickland Marine in South Carolina.
