The Pulman steel team grows

A combination of having recently been awarded the CE accreditation to add to its already achieved ISO 9001 quality award and the upturn in the economy has created a need to increase the Pulman Steel machining and operations team.

Founded in 1830, Abram Pulman & Sons is established as key employer in Yorkshire.  Over the last few months, nine new operatives have been welcomed by the existing Pulman team and are  now settled into their new job roles.

As a leading steel stockholder and processing centre, Pulman Steel delivers door to door throughout the North of England to engineering companies, fabricators, local authorities and the building industry.

Pulman Steel has one of the most comprehensive stock ranges in the north and next day delivery is offered.

Chris Walker and Tony Kirman have filled the oxy propane and high-definition plasma steel profiling machine roles. Graham Cahill and Jamie Wadsworth are sawing operatives and ensure that all steel is cut to the lengths specified. Jamie Love, John Brame and Zach O’Keefe are forklift truck operators loading and offloading products from the Pullmans’ fleet as well as ensuring production is kept up to with a continuous supply of raw materials. Two supervisory positions have also been filled; Sean Simmonds and Jamie Booth have taken on the roles of production supervisor and transport planner.

David Shoesmith, Pulman Steels Managing Director stated. “As an established company that has both survived and often grown through difficult times, it is always a delight to be able to offer jobs to people within the local area. Although steel is a serious business we employ a great bunch of people who support each other throughout their working days. Many of our staff has been here so long that the company feels like a busy family.

“Management ensure that staff have the knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm to perform their job roles with confidence, which is the key to the success of the business.” Debbie Roberts, responsible for recruitment at Pulman Steel said “It is nice to be part of a business that invests in technology without compromising the investment in people.”
