With over 40 years’ experience in automation, ATM recognises the need to ensure that the company never suffers from the 'skills gap' that blights many engineering companies today. ATM’s recent recruitment of their first Apprentice, Michael Quinney, will help bolster the specialist skills required to produce complex robot and assembly systems.
Michael joins ATM having completed the first full-time college year of a 4-year NVQ Level 3 in Engineering at South Leicestershire college. During his first year at college he did also spend some time at ATM in conjunction with his course.
Michael started his new role as Apprentice Automation Engineer with ATM in July, and in addition to attending day release courses he will undergo extensive training in all of the various departments within the company, gaining experience in 3D CAD Design, Manufacturing and Assembly & Test. ATM’s future plans for Michael include the installation and commissioning of ATM systems at customer sites.
