Neil Smith, our Wiring Department Supervisor marked his 25 years’ service at Northern Lights on 17th March.
Neil joined Northern Lights in 1992 on a YTS scheme as a wiring apprentice. Over the past 25 years, he has risen through the ranks from being the most junior member to becoming team leader and departmental supervisor.
He has wired thousands of fittings from statement chandeliers to bedside table lamps. Now he is managing a team of nine people to ensure all jobs are done in a timely and professional manner, meeting the most rigorous industrial standards.
Presenting the Long Service Award, Frances Conlon, Director said ‘Neil has been an exemplary employee at Northern Lights. We value his expertise and dedication highly. It is people like Neil who ensure we deliver outstanding products and customer service each and every day.’
Accepting the award, Neil said ‘I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. When I started as a 16 year old, I could not have imagined that our fittings would be seen all over the world. It has been really enjoyable and I hope to spend many more years at Northern Lights.’
Congratulations Neil. We hope so too.
