Usually sporting a weld helmet and a pair of heat resistant gloves, Lee is quite often seen working away in the company’s weld shop, welding together the many sign extrusions which pass through our factory on a daily basis.
A fully accredited welder, attaining a Level 3 City and Guilds qualification, he has developed his technical knowhow over the past 12 years, demonstrating a versatility which makes him a valuable asset to the team. Diligent, competent, meticulous, methodical, perfectionist – these are just some of the adjectives which best describe him when in the midst of a job.
His role in the team broadens further. In addition to welding, Lee also operates the onsite channel letter bender and handcrafts the extrusion which comes from the machine, manipulating and shaping it to customer specifications to form 3D lettering. It’s quite an art when watching!
“Being a welder is extremely fun and rewarding. However, there is no room for error; you get one chance to make that perfect weld and one chance only.”
