Armac Martin is celebrating the expertise of its female employees on International Women in Engineering Day. With manufacturing remaining a typically male-dominated industry, with just 11% of the UK manufacturing workforce made up of women, Armac Martin is proud to employ 36 women across all departments, making up 32% of employees.
Armac Martin recognises the importance of shining the spotlight on women within the industry, inspiring and paving the path for future generations to consider careers in both manufacturing and engineering.
It’s also important to recognise the contribution of women to Armac Martin’s most recent win of the Queen’s Enterprise Award for International Trade, which would not be possible without the hard work of each and every Armac Martin employee.
Armac Martin is also a Real Living Wage employer, ensuring not only that salaries meet the cost of living for employees, but also that workplace equality is ensured for future generations.
“At Armac Martin we recognise the challenges women face when entering the manufacturing industry, and work to make manufacturing an accessible and equal sector for all," comments Richard McGrail, Commercial Director at Armac Martin. "We aim to increase our percentage of employees who are women within the business and encourage them to inspire future generations to get involved in the manufacturing sector.”
