A REPAIRS outfit is on the lookout for five new faces after promoting one of their own.

Ben Fordham has been named site engineering manager at Northern Industrial, which specialises in new and reconditioned parts.

And as part of their further expansion plans, the Thwaites Close firm wants to further boost their 90-strong workforce.

Ben, who joined up as a control systems engineer, said: "We’re looking for people who are multi-skilled with both engineering and people skills as they’ll be helping out customers, who are very much coming to us in their technical hour of need, in a wide range of industries."

The company works with more than 1,350 manufacturers and has over 200,000 part numbers, worth around £7million, in stock at any one time.
