James Allen - Managing Director
I have worked for iLECSYS since 2000 and across a number of different sectors (including engineering) until I took over as operations director. I oversee our busy team of production staff and ensure that the warehouse runs smoothly as well as assisting with HR and Health and Safety.
I am part of the production team and oversee the production admin and design resource. I also work with the Operations Director to oversee our machine shop, safe area and rail production. I enjoy working at iLECSYS, our product ranges and skill sets are very diverse, and no days are the same! I work with a great range of people and there is always something new and exciting going on at iLECSYS.
I started working as a humble delivery driver for MGB Electrical in December 2000 then after a year or so I was invited to join the sales office and in 2003 I was asked to take up the reigns of the branch manager! Every day is different at iLECSYS from staff training through to ensuring orders are ready for dispatch.
I have been working for iLECSYS for nearly 10 years and I was attracted to the role because it is a family-owned business with high ambitions. Grace and Peter gave me the opportunity to work as a sales representative initially and then after about 3 years, I moved into an internal sales role, then a few years later I was promoted to branch manager. We moved from Stockport to Warrington in 2020 and this is an incredibly important part of the iLECSYS jigsaw and I have been proud to watch the branch develop and grow.
