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 12 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 off a donkey.
