Hazel Beasley

I work with clients to design, procure and install automation solutions in their warehouses or optimise their current systems. I joined Hatmill in July 2021 having previously worked in automation project management and solution design with experience in MF/1 contract management

Experienced Logistics Automation Project Manager and Solution Designer

I am a mechanical engineer and started my career in quality engineering for a manufacturing company supplying the Ministry of Defence with bespoke systems for pipelines. I have a strong maths background having worked in maths education and on education initiative projects involving data tracking and analytics. I particularly enjoyed working on projects through the lifecycle of design, delivery and then tracking results.

Working as an automation engineer for Logistics Engineering Services, I supported clients through conception, RFP, business case creation and detailed design with a range of vendors for their logistics automation projects. My work included solution designs for a large UK retailer on their eCommerce network and on technologies including dense storage and pocket and packing systems.

Before joining Hatmill I worked as a Project Manager for Dematic delivering a mix of both upgrades to existing and new automation installations. I have delivered projects involving a wide range of technologies on both green field and brown field sites and as a principal contractor.

My recent projects include:

  • Large scale cross belt sorter and mezzanines for a large courier company
  • Decant, shuttle, and packing systems for a nationwide retailer
  • Network, server, and SCADA upgrades for an eCommerce company
  • Conveyor and crane installation and upgrade for an international clothing retailer

Working for Hatmill allows me to combine my automation experience with solution design and analysis to support clients in finding the best solution for their businesses now and in the future.

By improving their demand forecast, we helped one client save £3m in agency staffing costs (that’s an 18% reduction).
