While Michael was completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in product design at Bournemouth University, he managed to secure a placement at Buckingham-based Inox Equip as a CAD designer.
Working there from July 2012 to September 2013, he discovered that he had the bug for kitchen design and he returned to the role at the distributor once he completed his studies last July.
According to his colleagues, Michael has grasped the role with enthusiasm and has quickly become a stand-out member of the team.
They said: “Michael’s commitment to the company and thirst for knowledge about the wider industry is admirable; every day brings new challenges from end-users, architects and main contractors.
“His ability to communicate at all levels continues to add value to our customers and peers. People like Michael are what our industry needs.”
Inox Equip is currently a part of several different projects and industry sectors including arenas, casinos, healthcare and the public sector.
Within Michael’s role he uses 2D and 3D design software, such as SketchUP and AutoCAD, to create outstanding designs. He also visits the sites he is designing for so he can get an informed view of what is required for the space.
With Inox Equip working on projects as large as the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, he will certainly get a chance to flex his design muscles at length going forward.
