Blog Article | Honouring Tradition with Engineers of the Future
Abbey Industrial Solutions has a long-standing commitment towards training engineering specialists of the future. Many members of the Abbey team joined the company as young apprentices through college-based engineering courses and have remained with the business for several years. Adopting a variety of roles and responsibilities, they form the critical backbone of Abbey.
In our long and rich history, Abbey has carefully nurtured employee talent and enthusiasm through the encouragement of training and mentoring programmes. With two new apprentices; Georgia and Jack enrolling within Abbey in the month of October, they join the likes of Nathan our current Service Team Leader, Harry who is our Service Engineer and Mick, Technical Engineer who, as former apprentices now hold significant roles within the Abbey family.
One of our longest serving team members is Tim, who has been with the company for almost 17 years. Whilst working on his Electrical Mechanical Engineering Course at Whitwood Mining Technical College Tim joined Abbey in 2003 as an apprentice, after his father came across the job advert and encouraged him to apply. Tim’s naturally inquisitive nature and curiosity to learn, quickly earned him the opportunity to enrol upon multiple manufacture led courses to further specialise his knowledge.
Over the years, Tim has travelled the world to attend various state-of-the-art facilities owned by large multinational corporations to complete several specialist courses. Completing training in multiple disciplines with the likes of Ingersoll Rand, Sturtevant Richmont and Cleco. Tim has completed in excess of 13 different training courses.
This high level and regular training schedule for our dedicated service engineers, allows Abbey’s clients the reassurance that all tools processed within Abbey Industrial Solutions, are being done so with manufacture trained specialists, who are equipped with detailed knowledge around both the product and this industry. Abbey team members such as Tim can not only help to service and repair a tool, but also advise on alternatives better suited to a clients individual needs and requirements.
Today, Tim is the Service Centre Supervisor for Abbey’s headquarters in Wakefield. Leading his enthusiastic service team; they work hard to deliver a robust and yet bespoke repair and testing service for a diverse client base.
