HoP Warehouse/Manufacturing Team
Chris R is our manufacturing team leader. The majority of pendulum poi and fire fans we make have Chris's manufacturing fingerprints on them at some stage before they are dispatched.
More recently Chris has been adapting to chief photographer and photoshop Guru for many of the new products you will see appearing on the HOP website.
HoP welcomes Nathan to the team, our latest addition to the busy factory dispatch area and Home of Poi family…..Nathan spends his days picking & packing all those object manipulation products that you all enjoy so much. We have yet to get Nathan addicted to one prop of choice but being the last port of call before the products are raced out the door how could he not want to give something a spin…..
We introduce and welcome Alex into the team for all the manufacturing of things bright and shiny flaming and fiery. With the ever expanding range of products that we have on the go at HoP we needed a couple of extra hands to get those products made daily and raced out the door….
Simon is our no.1 Monkey Fist maker. Spending many an hour in his spare time helping us to keep plenty of stock in our bins of this amazing product.
Sherb is a master Poi craftsman. He makes sure all custom jobs are done in a timely manner. He passes on his extensive knowledge onto new staff(people kind) and makes sure our product is top notch. Gives great hugs too.
Chris is our longest serving employee ( besides Malcolm ). Chris is our main guy for any technical/product enquiries and spends his days as the Operations Manager for HOP. A background in designing, refining and using props leads to much of the research and development along with day to day Operating procedures for the company. Any "difficult" enquiries/problems Chris will solve it.
