The advancement in technology.

Customer Satisfaction is a key factor, building a good working relationship is vital.

I left school and immediately started working, but to be honest, I really became inspired once I started working in the industry.


Days are varied but usually I spend my time quoting jobs, ordering material, chasing quotes and interacting with customers.

The variety and not knowing what we will be asked for next, it keeps me on my toes.

Work hard, listen, ask lots of questions and be proactive.

I am happy with what I have.

It’s hard to find the right words but truly I just love what I do.
