Four employees with precision engineering firm WKW have been rewarded for 25 years service.

Bernie Drury, Neil Ambler, Steve Gledhill and Paul Riley all received gifts.

Bernie works within the CNC Turning section and is a section leader with responsibility for training.

Neil was a radial driller for many years and is also a section leader with responsibility for the inspection for North Sea offshore products.

Steve is the sole engineer working on a Kearns Richard Borer but also operates the more modern CNC turning machines when required.

Paul worked as a manual miller but has recently learned new skills in his role as a CNC operator.

Company founder and managing director Richard Wyatt started out making spare parts for the machine tool industry, and now the business employs more than 50 making high tolerance precision engineered valves for prestige companies including globally based oil and gas clients involved in the North Sea industry.

“I have good staff with one being here over 37 years and another over 30 years,” said Mr Wyatt.

“If you pay good wages and look after your staff then they look after you.”

The company was initially based in a back street workshop at Garden Street North, Halifax, but now occupies a purpose designed manufacturing factory at Shaw Lane, Halifax, where it uses the latest machinery and information technology.
