Louie joined MechTronic in August 2022 as a Fitter Apprentice. Since then, he has been involved in building a range of products including man lids, sight glass kits, Add Tanks and building our flagship electronic metering system, OptiMate. As part of this build, Louie has been involved in the full production process, including wiring the system.  

We asked Louie what he enjoyed most about his role, he said: “I like the variety, each day I am making different products. I have particularly enjoyed building the OptiMate systems as there are lots of different elements to the build and it’s nice to see a complete product at the end. As part of this build I also construct the cover, which means I am responsible for drilling the holes, to adding the locks and ensuring that the cover fits the OptiMate system perfectly.”

What next for Louie? 

Louie said: “I am really enjoying my apprenticeship; I attend college one day a week but the practical experience I gain each week really helps support my learning. Over the next few months, MechTronic will also train me on pneumatics, which will widened my knowledge and further develop my skills to support me in my career.”
