By investing in the wellbeing and development of staff, we have assembled a highly skilled workforce with the design and technical expertise to keep us moving forward.
We enjoy an open and friendly environment, in which everyone is encouraged to be creative and contribute ideas. Our talented team comprises dedicated designers, experienced engineers, capable customer support and knowledgeable manufacturing and maintenance crews, to ensure clients are cared for consistently.
Personnel development programmes are measured formally, as well as via informal identification of training needs. Knowledge sharing with partner organisations is also welcomed to enhance the innovation process.
The majority of our employees live in and around Sheffield and we take pride in the levels of staff retention we enjoy. We have held the Investors in People accreditation since 2009 and nurture motivated apprentices in both factory and office roles, to complement the graduate level recruits that join our design and engineering departments.
Success at Mechan is measured both in terms of the company’s profitability and its continued endorsement by high profile rail organisations, such as Hitachi, Bombardier and Network Rail. However, contentment among our workforce is equally important. People in all positions are optimistic about the future of the company and the opportunities it presents.
