Ryan Smith Matthews

Ryan Smith-Matthews

Managing Director

​I started off in the industry as an apprentice Catering engineer. After having spent 3 years in that industry I left employment and set up my first business. It was there I spent 24 months refurbishing catering equipment, carrying out service, repairs and installations for some of the world’s biggest brands in catering equipment.

In 2014 I was approached by a family friend Mr Frank Louch who had started Lemlec in approximately 1980. He was looking for a trusted, keen individual to reignite the business, take it forward and build on it’s previous successes.

Nothing is too much trouble and Nathan will go out of his way to ensure the client is happy throughout any project. A real asset to the team.

Sam Dawson

Plumbing Operations Manager

Sam started in the plumbing industry in 2015 after moving to the Island from North Wales where he had previously worked for the local water board.

On moving to the island Sam studied plumbing at college, where he was awarded an outstanding achievement award, whilst working with some local plumbers he experienced the trade first hand. He then spent the next 2 years developing his skills and knowledge working for a local plumbing company, installing some of the largest domestic heating and hot water systems there are. Sam then went on to develop his own business where he did anything from, leaking taps to full bathroom and heating installations. After subcontracting to us for a few months, the opportunity arose to join our team as the plumbing operations manager, which Sam couldn’t have been happier to do.
