Louise Clayson, General Manager

about us louiseMeet Louise Clayson, general manager at C&D Fabrications. It’s Louise’s job to work with customers and staff to ensure all projects are completed on-time and to a very high standard.

Louise studied mechanics at Canterbury College and volunteered for our sister firm South East Coachworks in Faversham for work experience. They soon recognised her skills and energy and eight years ago offered her a full-time job.

Louise is now a qualified Level 3 mechanic with experience in metalwork; metal fabrication; coachbuilding; woodwork and light vehicle repairs. As if that wasn’t enough, she also completed a course in business management – all of which makes her extremely well qualified for her role running all aspects of C&D Fabrications.

Louise excels at her job because, in addition to being very good at all the technical elements, she is also loves working with people. She says: “I love dealing with customers who really appreciate the quality of C&D’s service. I also work with dealers and salespeople from around the country and of course the team of coachbuilders at the workshop. I really enjoy how varied the job can be, no two projects are the same. We all work very hard to make sure projects are finished on time and to a high standard. And that all finished vehicles meet DVLA requirements. I’m very proud of what we achieve as a team which makes my role very rewarding.”
