Clements Engineering are increasing their workforce this year in order to meet customer demands and are continuing to see a steady stream of enquiries. As the staff numbers increase the need to ensure Health and Safety training is up to date and relevant in the work place has meant that Adrian Gibbon has been appointed to this role.
Adrian comes from a varied background from several years in the Army to the construction industry, consultancy, IT and retail sectors.
The position at Clements Engineering covers multiple sites, including its own foundry and mechanical engineering workshop, where Adrian is taking the lead on the implementation and management of risk reduction initiatives.
On the position at Clements Engineering, Adrian commented “It is immensely satisfying to see something transformed from a block of metal, in the foundry, into something so functional, and sculptural, such as a propeller. It helps that you are working with experienced, skilled, time served staff who, in the main, appreciate what it is you are trying to do for them. I am not here to tell people how to do their job, many of them have been doing it for years; I just want them to understand the safety element of their work”.
Clements Engineering has seen a busy start to the year with several orders from both the domestic market as well as exports. They will be exhibiting next at the Skipper Expo in Galway 4-5 March.
