About the company

With a history expanding near to 100 years and ties to the great inventor Thomas Edison, my client is a globally recognised brand within the foam manufacturing industry. Operating in both the UK and US they are a world leader in cellular material technology, producing lightweight foams for the likes of Red bull, BMW, Unilever and Mizuno. Their products can be seen in football boots, surfboards and cars and on average they are producing around 7000 units per week.

Due to a sustained period of growth, turning over around 60 million pounds annually my client is looking to heavily invest in both their plant and their team. This has produced a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Maintenance Engineer to join their team.

Finally, you will be responsible for helping the team move from a ‘repair culture’ to an ‘improvement culture’.

About you

As a Maintenance Engineer, you will have a minimum of 2 years’ practical experience working in a high-pressure environment where a large volume of units is produced per week. You will be electrically biased holding a nationally recognised qualification, however you must be comfortable working with mechanical components.
