Advanced Manufacturing

Stockport-based WFEL, a leading worldwide supplier of military equipment, is creating a number of new jobs at its site in Heaton Chapel, to meet demand for its products, both in the UK and overseas.

The company – affectionately known by both current and past employees as 'Fairey's' in recognition of its heritage name of Fairey Engineering - is particularly well known for its precision engineering of Military Bridging systems, which have already been supplied to more than 40 Armies around the world.  The bridges are manufactured from military-grade lightweight aluminium, specially manufactured for WFEL, allowing them to be quickly deployed, which is a necessity when used in areas of flooding and other natural disasters.

New jobs immediately available incorporate a number of Supervisory roles, as well as Production and Machine Shop personnel including Welders and Fitters, to work on the manufacture of WFEL's DSB Dry Support Bridges, which are the longest non-reinforced bridges of their class anywhere in the world.

The company offers long-term employment opportunities and more details on the individual vacancies can be found on the WFEL web site:  https://www.wfel.com/page/wfel-careers/1021
