"I want us to have the best of everything but we need to have the best of people as well, which I truly believe we have here"
The restructuring of TJL’s manufacturing division is opening doors for the next generation – and Ross MacLeod, former Assistant Manufacturing Manager, is taking the biggest leap and becoming Workshop Manager.
There was no doubt in anyone’s mind as to who would step in to the newly created role of Workshop Manager when our manufacturing division restructure was being planned. Hardworking, talented and passionate, Ross is perfectly placed to support Michael Hillman, Manufacturing Manager, in continuing to develop our successful manufacturing division. He’s only 27 years old, but at TJL age is just a number and is certainly not a glass ceiling.
''10 to 15 years ago I would never have imagined I would be sitting in this seat but I am delighted to find myself in this position"
As we bid a final farewell to Billy Hynes who retired as Manufacturing Director last Friday, we shift our focus to the future of TJL’s manufacturing division, Michael Hillman, as he takes pole position for his biggest career move to date. Whilst Michael’s title remains as Manufacturing Manager, his managerial status and responsibilities will increase greatly and this step up has been more than well received by Michael himself.
‘’I am very excited to take over and propel us forward, we already are in the 21st Century but I am ready to push those boundaries further and try different avenues which we maybe haven’t tried in the past’’
“After a combined 40 years employment with TJ’s I feel the time is right for me to put my scale rule and calculator away for the last time”
As Billy Hynes locks up our Head Office for the last time this afternoon, Friday 31st August 2018, we reflect on the inspiring and successful career of TJL’s well respected Manufacturing Director who has had an incredible journey from 15 year old apprentice to 64 year old retiree!
Ten Hill Place Hotel, owned by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, offers guests a brilliant experience in the heart of the city centre!
After significant expansion, Ten Hill Place Hotel now has 129 rooms, a near 70 percent increase on its current provision of 77 rooms, as well as its newly refurbished restaurant and bar area, providing more leisure and relaxation space for guests and Edinburgh locals.
The warm colour tones in the bedrooms are a constant throughout the entire hotel and have been paired to compliment the dark wooden bar and finishings in 'The Snug'. This expansion has been designed to maximise the hotel's offerings whilst also retaining a sense of a cosy and personalised hotel experience.
With Ten Hill Place reinvesting all profits back into advancing surgical standards worldwide and operating as Edinburgh’s largest independent hotel this is an overnight stay with a difference!
The GFT secured the win for the Architecture Grand Prix award, the Leisure / Culture Building award and the Interior Design award!
We are thoroughly delighted that we were able to capture the desired vision for this incredible building and translate this ultimately in its delivery.
