On Thursday 2nd of May 2013, our Quality Engineering Manager, Matt Robson visited Hexagon Metrology for a one day SMA training course. Hexagon is a leading global provider of design, measurement and visualisation technologies that enable their customers to design, measure and position objects, and process and present data.
The SMA training course was attended by quality professionals from a range of sectors such as Motorsport, Aerospace and Sub Contractors. The aim of the course was to provide advice and information on quality related subjects.
The latest Manufacturing Advisory Service Barometer revealed that 43% of companies questioned have seen an increase in their order books over the past six months, with a massive 62% expecting sales turnover to grow between now and June 2013.
45% of manufacturers cited the availability of specific skills as a barrier to growth. At Amdale we are keen promoters of the apprenticeship as we have had several success stories over the years and continue to recruit apprentices as a way of safe guarding the future skills available to the business.
Our highly skilled employees provide us with enviable expertise which our customers rely upon. Which is why personal development continues once an apprentice becomes a full member of staff, as regular off-site training in management and other skills is provided. The policy avoids the problem many firms in the area have of recruiting and retaining skilled programmers, machinists and quality control staff. Continue reading
