Etek Europe Supports Youth Development

May 27, 2014

Etek Europe Ltd., a leading supplier of products and services to the European electronics industry, was delighted to take part in this year’s Scottish Apprenticeship Week by welcoming South Ayrshire’s MSP Chic Brodie to its premises at Prestwick’s International Aerospace Park.

Etek Europe has long been a supporter of the modern apprenticeship scheme that encourages and supports young people by providing them with work experience, the opportunity to learn a trade and to gain a formal qualification.

Mike Nelson, Etek’s Managing Director, explained that Etek continues to grow and has ambitious growth and diversification plans for the short, medium and long term. Chic explained that he was delighted to see a local employer investing in young people and giving them a chance to succeed.  He congratulated Mike and the team on Etek’s success and wished them the very best of luck with their plans for growth. 

Organised by local training company JB Management, Chic met with numerous apprentices (three of which now have full-time positions with Etek) who have been supported by Etek in both their career and personal development. 

Bill Ure, Managing Director of JB Management, also commented that Etek is an excellent example of a responsible and progressive employer in Ayrshire. 

Etek Europe has a strong reputation for being a quality provider of products and services to the aerospace, automotive, defense, medical and European electronic manufacturing industries. 

With more than 1,300 customers, Etek has built its success by developing strong relationships with both customers and suppliers, which ensures it continues to deliver premium solutions at a highly competitive price.

Together with one of the largest installation and service teams in the UK and with thousands of successful installations completed, Etek’s engineers have developed invaluable and unrivalled product knowledge and experience in all aspects of planning, supply, installation, testing, commissioning and maintenance.
