Established for over 25 years, my client is a market leader in the supply of process engineering systems to a variety of sectors such as O&G, Offshore, Offshore Wind, Marine, Power Stations/Power Plants and Hydro-Processing customers and many more. This multi-million-pound manufacturing business has gone from strength to strength and even throughout COVD-19, this organisation and the larger parent company have bucked the downward trend and are still in a growth phase. This fantastic achievement is down to the products and services my client offers as well as a testament to the solid relationships they have forged with their customers over the years.


Having recently recruited for this business, I can first-hand say they are a true investor in their staff, they offer a fantastic training programme and opportunities for you to progress into leadership roles should you wish to do so.
