LOCAL engineers have been given an in-depth tour of renowned company Keighley Laboratories.

Thirteen members of the Keighley Association of Engineers learned how the South Street company’s Metallurgical Analysis, Testing and Heat Treatment services provide specialist services to local and national companies.

Managing director Debbie Mellor said Keighley Labs had a historical relationship with the association.

She said: “It was fantastic to be able to demonstrate how we provide the highest-quality services across a wide range of industries.

“I am a strong believer in promoting engineering and manufacturing, and to have a delegation of local engineers understand the breadth of what the company does was a great opportunity.”

Debbie said the visitors were shown numerous processes at Keighley Laboratories, and spoke to staff both on a managerial and shop-floor level.

She added: “We demonstrated our expertise across all aspects of the business, as well as providing local engineers with a chance to interact with our employees in an interesting and insightful way.”

Sandy Maclure, a member of the Keighley Association of Engineers said: “The staff at Keighley Laboratories were very enthusiastic and it was fantastic to see young faces in today’s engineering workplace. Everyone was able to explain what they do and understood it to the best possible level.”
