Name: Lee West
Job Title: Laminate Fabrication Sales & Design Executive
Company: Nu-Style Products
Lee has been part of the Nu-Style products team for over three an a half years now, working in his role as a Laminate Fabrication Sales and Design Executive. His favourite aspect of the job is the creativity; drawing on CAD and designing furniture for Nu-Style customers. Recently he completed a project which saw him design a 2-tier corner seating unit from scratch, something he found very rewarding.
Before working at Nu-Style, Lee served as an apprentice joiner before coming a salesmen, then working at a window and door manufacturer. Planning a career path while managing his disability, he then studied CAD at college in an effort to get back to work. This landed him is career in design which Nu-Style has helped to fulfil.
Lee has felt the benefit of Nu-Style becoming part of the JDS group. When asked how it had impacted, he remarked "Since the Donaldson group took over Nu-Style last year, we have seen an increase in business are now getting more enquiries and orders for washroom products than ever before. There has also been investment in the business in the form of a tenon machine which is really nice to see."
When Lee is not at work, he and his fiancée (who he's set to marry next year) play football on a weekly basis and are both season ticket holders at Pittodrie. As avid Aberdeen fans they enjoy watching football on the TV too. Having just started running, the pair have 2 dogs they enjoy taking for long walks in the countryside. A big music fan, Lee also has a large vinyl collection and enjoys going to concerts and festivals regularly.
