Meet Linda Brewster7/15/16
When Linda Brewster was offered a chance to relocate to the Volvo Group’s new parts distribution center in Byhalia, Mississippi, she saw it as a fresh start.
After 20 years as an Administrative Assistant at the Volvo Group’s former distribution center in nearby Memphis, Tennessee, Brewster joined the Byhalia Central Distribution Center (CDC) as a Shipping and Export Coordinator.
At one million square feet, the center is currently the largest parts distribution center in the Volvo Group and the first parts distribution center owned by the Volvo Group in North America and there is the opportunity to expand another 250,000 square feet when needed.
The fast pace of Linda Brewster’s new job suits her. So does the Byhalia CDC team spirit that has developed among its 250 employees – including more than 80 people who transferred from other facilities.
“The people we’re bringing in are enthusiastic, and they want to see us prosper,” Linda Brewster says.
“Every time I pass a new person, I try to be upbeat, I’m a representative of this company, and I want people to feel comfortable working here and excited about the job they’re doing,”she says.
