Of the three apprentices, two will be trained in three of the main departments of the company, sales, production and CAD and the other will be trained as a multi-disciplined CNC operator.
Managing director David Lindsay said, “The UK needs a good supply of qualified engineers, they are essential, not only for the future of this company, but for the future of the country. We are pleased that we have been able to find three young people who are committed to the future of manufacturing and ambitious in themselves.”
The training of the apprentices is being carried out in-house under the supervision of Performance Through People (PTP), a locally based training provider.
The company said that Derek Payne would be using his experience in laser cutting, and sheet metal generally, to promote the company’s activities.
Lindsey said, “We have a significant presence in the East of the country but not as much as we would like. I am confident there is a great opportunity there and Derek will help us unlock it.”
