Hi, I am William, I just thought I would tell you a little bit about myself and my working background. I am the owner of Strang Designs and also a fully qualified tradesman.
I first became interested in Joinery work at school when I was only 7 years old, and I always had it in my mind that I wanted to have my own business. I was always good with my hands and had a keen eye for detail. I grew up in Lanarkshire and I left school at 16 to start work as an apprentice Cabinet Maker in Glasgow.
After I served my apprenticeship, I wanted to experience all aspects of the Joinery and Building Trade, but my heart was always in the finer details, which is something that you dont always find in the building trade.
I found my niche, when the fitted Bedroom industry first came to Scotland, and I knew in the first few days that this was what I wanted to do as a career.
I left the fitted Bedroom company that I worked for in 1984 and opened my own business in the manufacturing of fitted Bedrooms, which I continue to do to this day.
Although I have experienced highs and lows during my time in the industry, I have never looked back, and I still love what I do, and hope to continue doing the job that I love for may more years to come.
