Current electrical engineering apprentice Sam Allen, 18, said: “Things are going very well for me here. I’ve just finished working with my mentor and I’m now working more independently on jobs and really enjoying things.”

Apprentice business partner Ricky Singh said: “This open event will be the perfect opportunity for people to learn more about these roles within a well-established company which specialises in switchgear and control panel applications.

“There could be the opportunity to apply for vacancies at the open evening should individuals have the pre-requisite qualifications.”

    Switchgear solution

    Imtech Centre of Excellence

    In 2019, Imtech Engineering Central took the decision to build a bespoke training area to be used for training operatives as Authorised Persons on safe isolation procedures. To assist with this task, Imtech looked to AF Switchgear to help design and provide a suitable training panel.


    Imtech Centre of Excellence


    Following the successful delivery and installation their training facility Managing Director Darron Littlehales contacted AFS and issued the following statement:

    “At Imtech we have a desire to raise the standards and awareness of energisation on construction sites and the strict procedures that are required and responsibilities of Authorised Persons on those sites. To do this we invested in the development of a teaching and practical demonstration area. As best in class we were pleased that AF switchgear partnered with us and provided a superb switch panel which was ideal for the task. We have a long heritage of working together and look forward to AF switchgear employees joining us on the future training and the future projects we will work on together”
