How important are engineers and your technical staff to your business/sector?
AESSEAL is an engineering led organisation. To be a challenger brand in our sector, and a reliability partner for our customers, we need skilled engineers and technical people to apply technology and processes in new ways to deliver added value to our organisation and people.
How does professional registration benefit your company, staff, sector?
Professional registration is an avenue for engineers to develop the competences required to lead in dynamic and highly technical areas; not only in applying our products in major process industries, but also in development of our manufacturing technologies. It ensures engineers continually advance their knowledge to keep up with emerging technologies, practises, and market needs. This in turn provides continued growth opportunities and rewarding careers for our people.
