Apprentices, following in the family footsteps

We are delighted to welcome two new Apprentices to Reekie Machining.

Jordan Richmond, has joined us as a 1st year Apprentice, in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasise on fitting.  Through his course, run at East Kilbride Training Centre, he will develop machining skills in turning, boring and drilling, starting this week with milling.   He is pictured above with his grandfather Jim Richmond, who has been with David Reekie and Sons since he started his Apprenticeship in 1969.

We have also welcomed to our Machine Shop, Darren Taylor, who comes to us as a 2nd year Apprentice to broaden and develop his skill on the wide range of machines in the Machine Shop.  Darren will continue to attend college once a week as part of his course, whilst completing his Level 3 in Mechanical Engineering.

We are proud to be working to continually develop the work force bringing young people into the industry and providing them with the opportunities to be part of an innovative business.
