Craig always knew he wanted to work in engineering. So when the opportunity of an apprenticeship at Hydram came along, he took it.

During his apprenticeship he worked throughout the factory before he was eventually offered a job in the assembly section. More recently he joined the design team as a programmer.

He now uses a computer to efficiently organise the manufacture of individual metal parts in order to optimise production and minimise waste.

Craig works mainly in the office, but he’s ready to go out on the shop floor if any issues need dealing with. “I like the fact that every day is different and presents new challenges”.

“I’ve seen newspaper stands in garage forecourts and I regularly see hand poles we manufacture painted in bright colours on buses across the country”.

It’s a role he feels well suited to. “I’m quite an organised person and I’m interested in what we do”.
