We’re very excited to announce the arrival of a new recruit to Concept Hand Tufting.  Charles’ daughter, Ellie Lean, has joined us this week, initially as Sales and Marketing Director, but with the long term goal of taking over running the business.

Those of you who have worked with us for over 10 years will remember that Ellie (then Ellie Lawton) worked at Concept Hand Tufting in sales for 3 years in the late 2000s. Since then she has worked as an Account Manager in a PR agency and, for the last 7 years, has been running an independent bakery with her husband, Matt.

Managing Director, Charles said, “Despite the unique and challenging times that 2020 have brought, we are as busy as ever at Concept and we’re thrilled to be able to start planning for the succession of the business. We have no doubt that, under the new management, Concept will continue to grow and thrive for many years to come.”

As a fifth generation textile business director, Ellie is excited to be back in the world of carpets.

“My great-great grandfather opened a yarn-spinning business with his son Frank in Huddersfield in 1902. Fred Lawton & Son Ltd grew to be one of the prominent textile businesses in the UK. My grandfather went on to run it, and then Charles, my father, took over before selling it on and moving into the carpet side of the industry starting up Concept Hand Tufting with Amy in 2004. I worked at Fred Lawton’s in the summer holidays as a teenager so textiles is in my blood through and through”, Ellie said.
