Nathaniel Powell - Managing Director

A bit about me:
At the age of 16 my dad told me “get a trade son” which led me into the world of joinery. I qualified as a cabinetmaker, which is where I learnt precision and quality. From then I trained as a bench joiner also learning skills in workshop management.

 

Being a perfectionist I made the decision to open my own company where I would be in control of the quality and products leaving the workshop. That was over 7 years ago now and although it is hard work, it is worth it to hear great feedback from happy customers. I’m proud of what we produce. 

Likes:  Spending time with my family. Receiving feedback from customers.

Dislikes:  Snow, ice and breaking bones (I’ve broken a few over the years).

Hobbies: Growing my business, learning new skills, personal development.

Can’t live without: My family and the great team around me.

Best known in the team for: Can talk the hind legs of a donkey.
