We are delighted to announce that Michael Hillman our Manufacturing Manager has been confirmed as the 16th iCAN Mentor as part of Tiger's Ltd initiative. This mentorship programme is for men who aspire to be future leaders and for mentees who are willing and enthusiastic to learn from others expertise.
Michael understands the challenges young people face in today’s workplace and with his years of experience managing TJL’s workshop apprentices he is well suited to this role.
Here at TJL our first core value is people and we are extremely proud of Michael’s achievement and the insight and passion he will bring to this partnership.

Another excellent achievement for one of the TJL team, Ruairidh Clark, our 4th year joinery apprentice who has been awarded a Certificate of Recognition from The Trades House of Glasgow at this year’s Glasgow Modern Apprentice Awards 2019.
Ruairidh’s apprenticeship journey has taken him on a slightly unexpected route as two years into his apprenticeship he had an unfortunate accident outside work in which he broke a leg, forcing him to take time off from factory work. Having worked hard proving his commitment, enthusiasm and dedication to his apprenticeship, Michael Hillman, our Manufacturing Manager, offered Ruairidh the opportunity to return to work as a trainee in Setting Out and he was delighted to accept.
Ruairidh continues to thrive in this trainee position and while his task load and daily operations have shifted quite dramatically he will qualify in August with a broadened skillset beyond joinery thanks to his unique experience.
Well done Ruairidh!
We have more brilliant examples of the wonderful pieces being produced this week in our factory which showcase the incredible capabilities of our Manufacturing Division. These images show seating for Santander Bank, curtain pelmets for Holiday Inn Express, Edinburgh and storage and seating for Maidenhill Primary School.
Exciting times in our 30, 000 sq. ft factory!
Great progress being made with stage 1 groundworks on TJL’s Small Works Division's new bio-filter project who we are working in partnership with Enva & GICOM.
