Lewis served his apprenticeship as a car mechanic from the age of 16 and stayed on the tools for many years, working in local garages as well as main dealerships. He spent time working for a mining company called Rio Tinto in Dampier, Australia and also spent some time working in construction during his time in Australia. When he returned to the UK, he went back on the tools and became an MOT tester. Lewis then decided he wanted a career change, with the aim of getting into something where he could climb a ladder, he chose to follow in his Father’s footsteps and get into Health and Safety which he has always been passionate about, so self funded himself through the NEBOSH NGC and managed to get a job in the sector in the fragrance compounding industry. He worked his way up within this company and had the responsibility of managing the health and safety of the manufacturing site and looking after the health and safety of over 200 people on site. Lewis joined the MR Industrial Services team in May 2019.
Lewis’ family mean more to him than anything in the world so his favourite thing to do is to spend time with them. He also enjoys playing football and watching Manchester United and Scotland. Lewis is a keen golfer and loves getting out for a round. He loves music, either listening to it in the house or going to gigs.
