Employee of the Month – May 2019

7th June 2019   |   News

The Nominations for JC Metalworks Employee of the Month for May 2019 are… 

Duane Hanwell – Forming Team Leader 

Ben Ludlow, Project Manager confirmed that “A recent order had issues on the day of despatch where the shelves were too tight and weren’t sliding together correctly. This wasn’t down to a forming issue, but Duane took it upon himself to rectify as all other staff were busy. Thanks to Duane picking this up and rectifying an issue from what appeared to be a design flaw, the client was able to collect on time and install the items same day. Thank you, Duane, for going the extra mile.” 

Daniel Smeed – Apprentice Estimator 

Stephen Wooldridge, Account Manager said that “Dan’s shown great maturity in dealing with potential new customers by taking a brief and discussing with internal departments the best way to produce parts that best suit JC machinery. After discussing with the customer then issuing an accurate and competitive cost to win potential orders going forward.” 

And… the Employee of the Month for May is… Duane Hanwell! 

Congratulations Duane. Thank you for all the hard work and well done!

Well done to everyone and keep up the good work!

A special mention… 

Congratulations to Ashley Smith who cycled 157 miles from Leicester to Skegness and back on Saturday 1st June! He did this for a great cause to raise donations for a local Leicestershire charity, LOROS, which are close to his family’s heart. His efforts were commendable and what a great job he did!

LOROS Hospice is a local charity delivering free care and support to over 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland each year. Their free high-quality, compassionate services are tailored to be special and unique to each terminally ill patient, their family and carers.

He said “Saturday was tough, a fast first 100 miles which went really well albeit from two punctures but we ploughed on and came about 4th/5th out of 300+ people when we arrived in Skegness. Getting back into Boston felt good but then at 145 miles the dreaded wall of pain came. Sunburnt, fatigued and exhausted we carried on and got to 157 miles and that’s when we called it a day as it could have got out of hand!”

Well done Ashley!
