We provide all the training necessary to work in the respective departments, and any specialist tooling, to complete required tasks. While working here, you’ll learn important communication and skills to be able to problem solve and work well with others in the team.

In our manufacturing plant we give you the opportunity to learn skills such as:

  • Assembling machines and sub-assemblies from basic components.
  • Welding and fabrication of steel and aluminium components
  • Preparing and painting steel fabrications (blasting and paint booths)
  • Quality control -Testing and finishing machines ready for sale or export
  • Stores Management -Managing Inventory and inwards and outwards goods
