In 2008 he became a Director and in 2011 Paul bought out the previous Managing Director to become the majority shareholder. In 2011 the company was operating with just 4 employees from an old cotton mill in Otley, West Yorkshire. However, Paul saw potential in the business and an opportunity to grow through re-investment and hard work with the support of fellow Director’s and a dedicated workforce.
Today, DES operates from a new and bigger location with 15 members of staff and 9 CNC machine centres operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Paul continues to be the main point of contact for all customer queries, from enquiry stage right through to delivery of the finished order, providing continuity to each customer.
