"DSF is a lovely place to work and over the years I have made many very good friends. The Company is extremely flexible with my hours which has helped over the many years I have worked here to raise my family. My Great Grandfather, my Grandad and my Gran worked here for the majority of their working lives, so it is nice that I have continued to keep my family connections with DSF. "
Diane Cope, HR Administrator
"I’ve worked at DSF for 29 years which has, unbelievably, flown by! Over the years I’ve seen many technological, cultural and health & safety improvements that have changed the company beyond recognition. I started on the shop floor but, after a while, took a position in the IT department after successfully completing a company funded IT degree."
Ian Gould, ICT Systems Co-ordinator
