Jenks & Cattell Engineering Ltd has been a major engineering employer in the West Midlands for over 130 years, once a workplace to almost 1,000 people and now employs over 100 valued employees including a very experienced and skilled engineering team.
As a business that has a Continuous Improvement philosophy, Jenks & Cattell Engineering focus on investing in training our employees on a regular basis, and this month we are pleased to present over 30 employees with their training certificates.
Congratulations to the 15 employees who received training by PLT Training who successfully completed a ‘Working Safely’ course which is fully approved by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health.
Congratulations also to a further 20 employees within our welding team, who have completed courses in ‘MIG weld awareness including defect analysis and symbol creation’, resistance welding awareness and an internal training course delivered by RWS/Welserv on ‘programming and setting criteria of the new version 5 timer’. To which we have invested over £20,000 in four timers over the last two months.
Speaking of everyone’s success in completing the training, Craig Jeavons, Technical Director said: “The success of the company is only excelled because of our hard working and competent staff, and we are proud to have achieved Caterpillar’s 7 Steps to Welding Excellence and their Supplier Quality Excellence Programme ‘Silver Award’ more than once – which is because of our hard work and dedication.”
We have heavily invested in both our resistance and MIG welding section’s which offer an excellent quality of welding to all our customers. Our investments include six robotic welding machines, two manual welding cells, in-house macro weld test facility and over 20 spot, CD and projection welding facilities. More recently, we have invested in an automated nut feeder to enhance our welded assembly quality.
