Klarius on ‘recruitment drive’
Having recently invested in its manufacturing, warehouse and logistics infrastructure Klarius Products Ltd based in Cheadle is looking for up to 40 new employees over the next eight weeks. Anyone from the local area who has manufacturing skills, warehouse experience or administrative qualifications is being encouraged to get in touch.
The business has continually invested in its facilities and personnel, providing sustainable growth and employment opportunities to workers in the local area. Just recently, area MP Bill Cash opened a Vector Pipe Line (VPL) machine, which stands three stories high and represents a large part of a £1million investment being made by the company. Fulfilling new contracts to supply automotive exhausts, CATs and DPFs is just one of the recent developments driving investment.
While skilled people are needed right now, there are also training opportunities available for young people. The Klarius group of companies manufacture and distribute a wide range of products from production machinery (KMT) to garage tools and aerosols (Emissco). The group has a strong track record for training within the industry, recently formalising its garage technician courses with full Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) accreditation.
Wayne Johnson, manufacturing manager at Klarius, said: “It’s great to be in a position where we are offering motivated people good jobs. There are a range of opportunities coming up, from highly skilled welders and machine operators to positions for people wanting to start a career. Combined with our manufacturing apprenticeship scheme it means we are part of a local and national success story.”
