We caught up with Dave Price, our Joinery Workshop Manager for a chat about his role at Amspec.
Can you tell us a bit about your background, did you always want to work in the building and design industry?
I’ve always been interested in woodwork and studied Carpentry & Joinery via City and Guilds at Wigan College.
How long have you worked for Amspec, and how did you originally join the team?
I’ve worked at Amspec for just over 10years now, I saw an advert in the local newspaper for Joiners so I applied, was interviewed and got the job! I worked my way up to Workshop Manager and I haven’t looked back, it’s a great company to work for.
Tell us a bit about a typical ‘day in the life’ as Joinery Workshop Manager
My day in the Workshop is generally very busy. There is such a varied selection of clients and projects, meaning there's a huge amount of different products to manufacture, which definitely keeps each day interesting!
What is your favourite thing about working at Amspec? What makes it such a great company to work for?
My work colleagues are a good bunch to be with every day - it's a great team to be part of. Plus we have great management and the variety of my work keeps me wanting more!
What’s the most exciting Amspec project you’ve been involved with to date?
A couple of years ago I was involved in a project in Manchester called Doubletake Studios. This is a photography studio and Amspec were appointed to carry out a complete interior fit out and refurbishment of the studio. From design to completion – this project was fantastic.
I also enjoyed working on a huge bespoke reception counter for The Playfactore in Manchester. The counter was approx. 50ft do it was a big job, but I loved the challenge.
Outside of work, what do you love to do to keep busy?
I love socialising with friends, having days out and carrying out DIY tasks on my house.
Whatever sort of project you're planning - whether it's a brand new design and build from scratch, or the refurbishment of an existing space, there are lots of ways that Dave and his team can use their skills to take your results to the next level. From stylish booth seating installations, to bespoke furniture that's exclusive to you, Dave and his team in our onsite workshop have the equipment and the experience to make your dreams a reality.
