Working for Wakefield Acoustics
Author: Wakefield Acoustics – Noise Control Specialists | Last Updated: April 2023
The past two to three years have been difficult for many businesses with the impact of Covid, Brexit and worldwide political and economic factors. However, like many successful engineering businesses, Wakefield Acoustics is experiencing somewhat of a business boom with high demands for our products and services across the power and industrial markets we serve. With the increased demand comes additional challenges in recruitment, with many businesses wanting to attract highly skilled engineers and fabricators. But what is it like to work for a company such as Wakefield Acoustics?
Since I joined the company in 2013, the company has undergone many changes, with a change in premises in 2015, investment in laser cutting technology, press brakes and rollers to name a few, all driven by the fact the company has been successfully growing for a number of years.
Whilst it is always encouraging to work for a company who are growing and developing, training and development of our people is also a key factor. Within recent years, two of our fabricators have transitioned into our engineering department, and now produce general arrangement drawings and fabrication drawings to feed work out onto the factory floor. Apprentices have also been key within the factory environment, to help train the skilled fabricators of tomorrow.
Away from the factory and offices, Wakefield Acoustics now have two dedicated installation teams, who attend customers’ sites to fit our products, all of whom have relevant health and safety training for the sites they attend.
One of the main areas of personal enjoyment whilst working for Wakefield Acoustics is the variety of work we undertake. Whilst an acoustic enclosure, container or sound attenuator may not be considered by some to be massively varied, each item has some level of design complexity and engineering requirement from the required noise level to be achieved, ventilation requirements and material specifications. The assortment of work is also evident on the factory floor with the sheer number of different elements currently seen in production. To sum it up, I think the variety of work is one of the main things our employees enjoy, with different solutions to be found and created to suit client requirements.
