The Cutting Room
Work hard and you shall be rewarded, or that’s the idea at least.
Thankfully for the employees at New Balance’s Cumbrian factory at Flimby, it is an idea that the company fully subscribes to, as they have just give three of their longest serving staff members the chance to design their own signature shoes, in celebration of thirty years of New Balance production at Flimby.
The “Cutting Room” Pack marks thirty years of UK production with 3 unique styles, whose materials and features have been chosen by Andy, Billy, or Roy to suit thier interests.
Read what the humble trio have to say about all of this below. You can also see each chaps signature shoe by clicking their name.
Andy Mandle, employee of13 years.
“It’s still hard to believe that we have shoes named after us. We just make the things. It’s nice to see New Balance think we’re that important to the process. I’m very proud.”
Billy Edgar, employee of 22 years.
“I never thought it would happen to me in my lifetime. Shocked really but it just shows that if you work hard at something long enough, you too can excel.”
Roy Bell, employee of 28 years.
“I feel very proud to be associated with a successful product.”
