I love that at Adrian’s we salvage products that would be industrial waste to either manufacture great products, or re-market the webbing to our customers who put it to a higher and better use. I really enjoy solving the challenges involved in improving the company’s effectiveness in our systems and processes to better serve our customers. ~Phillip Cook
Phillip has extensive warehouse management experience and has turned our warehouse upside down – in a good way! After leaving active military duty, as an Airborne Paratrooper, Phillip worked as a warehouse supervisor and purchasing manager. Later he worked as the logistics manager for a consumer electronics firm, and managed warehouse and transportation operations in four states and two Canadian provinces. He has a graduate degree in Supply Chain Science and is a certified industrial lift truck operator trainer, National Weather Service trained Storm Spotter, and licensed ham radio operator.
When Phillip is not in the office you can find him spending time with his wife Elizabeth and their children Caleb, Elizabeth, and Annie. The Cook’s enjoy supporting Down Syndrome Awareness Group of East Tennessee, Special Olympics, and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
