It is fair to say The Cylinder Service Centre is a hydraulic cylinder engineering business first and foremost.
Although the business does also work with pneumatics, the bulk of demand comes for our hydraulic services which is the core specialism of the business.
The Cylinder Service Centre is made up of a team of highly skilled individuals, time served and experienced.
While every effort is made to bring and train new talent in, the team as a whole is relatively mature and highly knowledgeable.
The Cylinder Service centre is based in the North East of England a region with a long history of engineering in the ship industry, mining industry and their associated supply chains.
Our typical engineer therefore comes from mining, or ship building having served a full five years of apprenticeship in either machining, fitting or a combination of the two.
It is an old adage that when someone talks of 20 years of experience, one should check whether that is 20 different years of experience or just one year repeated 20 times.
With the vast majority of our team there has been no choice but to gain a wide range of experience.
The decline of ship building and mining in the North East of England followed by the growth of the automotive industry has meant that a typical member of our team has had a number of jobs before settling at The Cylinder Service Centre.
This means he has brought with him a wealth of genuinely varied experience.
When employing a new engineer we always look for someone who can bring in at least one extra skill set to the team to enhance our overall capabilities and knowledge.
That experience continues to be built upon at The Cylinder Service Centre throughout their employment. Our average engineer has been with us for more than 5 years and many engineers much more than that.
The Cylinder Service Centre prides itself on NOT having a high turnover of staff.
It is widely appreciated within the team that the nature of our work is both challenging and varied. The skills employed may be pretty much the same every day, but that is all that is the same. The huge variety of work that we undertake from manufacture to a wide range of repairs stretches everyone.
There is a never a dull moment - in a very positive way.
Over the years our team has expanded steadily in line with the growth of the business.
The business continues to develop and expand into new areas. It is clear that the challenges will continue to develop for The Cylinder Service Centre hydraulic cylinder engineer.
