NY Timber Takes on New Workers
NY Timber is taking on new workers following the decision that the manufacturing company was to open a new division devoted to hardwood flooring, although whether that department will also involve them carrying out wood floor repair remains to be seen.
Many of the new workers, around 18 in total, are thanking their lucky stars at the development, as most of them have just recently lost their jobs as a result of the collapse of the Darlington-based conservatory company Amdega. This was one of the oldest conservatory companies not just in the United Kingdom but in the entire world, but which went into administration three months ago, back in April.
Thirty-nine-year-old Andrew Watters is one of those 18 workers, who has now been made production manager at NY Timber after over 20 years of experience in the timber industry, many of them as manufacturing manager for Amdega. “As a family man with two children, it was a really worrying time, facing the prospect of being unemployed, and like so many people nowadays, chasing work” admits Watters. “It was not only a relief to get the job with NY timber, but I also know that there is a very exciting future with a successful business which plans to grow.”
NY Timber was established 32 years ago in 1979 and employs more than 150 people in 7 branches across the Yorkshire region. Its new division, offering hardwood flooring and feature doors, already has a website and dedicated showroom.
