#FeatureFriday - Jimmy

As we go into the bank holiday weekend, we wanted to use this week’s #FeatureFriday to shine a light on another member of team LDL and a crucial part of the success behind our 3D drawer production. Jimmy is one of our resident drawer experts, an essential part of the 3D production team and a valued member of the LDL family.

As part of our bespoke drawer production process, he prepares all our materials and tests the quality of each piece of oak, aluminium, steel and glass for the assembly line. That means every single drawer we ship has seen Jimmy’s deft touch!

When we asked around the business for comments on Jimmy’s #FeatureFriday, we were told it was long overdue! A much beloved team member, he really is part of the very fabric of LDL. Our Operations Manager, Simon Noble, had this to say:

“Thoroughly dependable, Jimmy is one of those team members who just doesn’t stop and takes an enormous amount of pride in his work.”

Now it’s time to hear from the man himself!
So Jimmy, how long have you been with LDL?

"In the beginning I worked as a contractor for several months, though I’ve been full-time with the company for 2 years."

And what’s your role here?

“I’m a Production Specialist and part of LDL’s 3D assembly line.”

What does that entail?

“ A bit of everything! It’s a broad role, with aspects from warehouse procurement and checking works orders, to sawing, routing, re-working materials and building drawer fascias.”

I hear you’re something of an expert around a saw?

“Everybody on 3D production is an expert, it’s why we all work so well together.”

Why should somebody choose LDL?

“Because we use good products, we create a good finished article and it’s all made by a good team. At every step, we only add value and strive to go that extra mile.”

What’s your favourite thing about working here?

“I enjoy the work, I’m good at it and our team are really one of a kind. As soon as I heard about the job, I knew I couldn’t waste this opportunity. I’d been a wood machinist for many years and through LDL I was offered a chance to step into a very unique environment amongst a team of specialists. It was a chance to get back to what I love.”

To put you on the spot, if you could say just one thing to sum up your time here, what would it be?


“The job’s interesting and we work with some really genuine people, including our boss Simon, if that’s not a cringey thing to say. It’s true! He’s personable and really gets to know you, he even asks after your family, there aren’t many bosses are like that. LDL is the best place I’ve ever worked.”
It’s always fantastic to hear such kind words, especially from such a valued member of the team. Here at LDL, we strive to foster a friendly and welcoming environment for everyone who steps through our doors, be they staff, customer or tax man! That said, it’s still lovely to hear it told from the heart.

This has been another peak behind the curtain into how we make the LDL magic happen and we hope you’ve enjoyed meeting the team. Next time you receive your bespoke drawers, you’ll be able to put a name to the handiwork and care that’s gone into them.
That’s it from Jimmy & team LDL, find us on social media to keep up to date on all the latest from the world of Kitchens, Bedrooms & Bathrooms and don’t forget to have a great weekend!
