RP Recruits New Apprentice Toolmaker


RP Welcomes Apprentice Toolmaker

RP Technologies has recently recruited a new apprentice.

Ellyott Meakin, 18, has just finished his studies and has joined our team of specialist toolmakers. Their in depth knowledge and vast experience will be hugely beneficial to Ellyott, as he embarks upon a dedicated programme of learning with us.

For RP, Ellyott represents the next generation of toolmakers. He will carry RP’s toolmaking forward for many years, so that our longstanding customers can rest assured that the same level of quality which we have become synonymous with will sustain itself for the many years and decades ahead. Ellyott will add energy, enthusiasm and freshness to our daily operations, allowing us to evolve, adapt and nurture new talent.

Darren Withers, co-owner and director, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Ellyott to our team. We were all impressed by his desire to learn and his determination to succeed. A professional approach and a willingness to take on board constructive feedback are important qualities in any workplace.

Ellyott’s time will be apportioned between various members of the tooling department, so that he can learn different skills from each of them. This will give him an appreciation of the toolmaking process from A-Z.

It is our hope that in the fullness of time, Ellyott will be confident enough to work without supervision on each aspect of the toolmaking process. He now has the opportunity to build a successful career, and we will fully support him in his efforts to do so.”

Welcome to the team, Ellyott!
