Union Industries searches for flexible Mechanical Engineer

Union Industries is setting a challenge to Mechanical Engineers to follow in the footsteps of one their disciplines leading lights.

Peter Rodgers, former Engineering Director at Union
Industries.

After nearly 30 years with the company, Peter Rodgers officially retired from his role as Engineering Director in 2016, but has continued to work with Union Industries as a consultant for the company’s Industrial Curtain products.

Recently, he delivered a farewell installation for transmission technology specialists, Xtrac, as he prepares to fullyretire from the Leeds-based manufacturer.

Over his time as Engineering Director, Peter was instrumental in many of Union’s bespoke Fabric Engineered solutions, having been involved with specifying, designing, surveying and also the installation of multiple Industrial Curtains for customers both in and outside of the UK.

The company is looking to recruit an equally inventive and creative Mechanical Engineer to continue the Industrial Curtains division’s success.

Andrew Lane, Union Industries’ Managing Director said “Peter will be sorely missed, and his replacement to fill the mechanical engineering aspect of our Curtain division certainly has big shoes to fill. A born engineer, Peter is able to turn his hand to anything and has been instrumental in the development of our Fabric Engineering department. We’re now looking for an excellent, practical, engineer who fits in with Union’s ethos of providing high quality bespoke solutions. This position is key to continue the growth we’ve experienced in this division and we need someone who can thrive on the challenge that is Industrial Curtains.”
