Engineer Crisis

Further to the SHD article in December 2018, we are also concerned about the shortage of fully skilled Materials Handling Equipment Engineers and the difficulty in recruiting new blood as well as the general skills shortage within the industry.

Also dare I use the word BREXIT when that happens, it could get even worse should border restrictions compound the issue by not allowing the free movement of people.

As a major service provider for many blue chip companies for the service, maintenance and repair of Hand Pallet Trucks, Powered Pallet Trucks, Manual and Electrical Stackers plus principle dealers to EP Products, Logitrans and Lift-It brands our field service engineers are the forefront of what we do and a necessity to what we do.

However, as stated in the article it’s not all doom and gloom because there are record numbers of apprentices joining the B-TEC engineering courses as well as training and apprenticeship course being provided by manufacturers and associated companies.
