Alyn and Deeside Senedd Member, Jack Sargeant, recently showcased the very best of Deeside’s engineering expertise by introducing the Minister for North Wales to two top engineering firms.

The visit aimed to promote more government support, both for the industries in general and for young people looking at apprenticeships in engineering.

On his tour, the Minister met representatives from ElectroImpact and Granada Material Handling. Both of these companies are leaders in the aerospace sector, known for their innovative technology.

ElectroImpact, famous for its advanced aerospace robotic equipment, and Granada Material Handling, a pioneer in modern lifting solutions, proudly displayed their high-tech abilities.

There were two main goals for this tour. The first was to show off the fantastic work being done by these companies. The second was to stress the importance of the Welsh Government supporting this industry.

This is especially crucial as the sector evolves to produce more environmentally friendly, carbon-neutral products.

Having once been an engineer himself, Jack Sargeant has a deep connection to the industry. He’s passionate about encouraging more people to join it.

He’s keen on promoting apprenticeships in manufacturing. He hopes visits like this one will motivate the Welsh Government to create programmes attracting more youngsters to the field.

Jack Sargeant MS commented, “The aerospace industry, like many others, is undergoing big changes. It’s vital to highlight when local companies are leading the way in innovation.”

“There are plenty of chances for young people to start apprenticeships. We all need to promote this option to our community.”

“I wanted the Minister to hear directly about the groundbreaking work going on, but also about the challenges in hiring.”

“Deeside has a rich history of manufacturing. With companies like these at the helm, our future looks promising.”
