MCHALE PLANT SALES TO HOST ‘OPEN DAY’ FOR APPRENTICES

 Construction, civil works and waste management machinery distributor, McHale Plant Sales is advancing plans to host an ‘open day’ for prospective apprentices at its headquarters in Birdhill or Rathcoole, or possibly both.

Likely to be held in Autumn, the proposed event is seen by the company as a logical follow-on to their publication last year of a ‘Career Choices in the Construction Plant and Equipment Industry’ booklet, the content of which can be viewed on the company’s website, http://www.mchaleplantsales.com/

The proposed open day is intended as a direct response to the situation now developing in the sector whereby companies such as McHale Plant Sales – whose machinery lines include Komatsu construction and forestry equipment, Metso stone crushers, Merlo telehandlers and Terex waste handling machinery – are being advised to augment their technical support teams with personnel versed with an understanding of computerisation and the sophisticated ‘intelligent’ technology now being installed in heavy plant and motorised vehicles generally.
 
While numbers will be restricted and final details have yet to be decided, the company is already open to receiving what company director, Michael McHale terms ‘expressions of interest’ from those wishing to attend. These, he said, can be channelled through the company’s website ‘contact’ page in the first instance.
 
According to McHale, the plan will be for a ‘one-day event built around a mixture of conference-room talks and presentations coupled with a visit to our workshops and a hands-on opportunity to view machines and see the technology now being employed in their design and construction’.
 
Possible also will be the participation of international experts from Komatsu, Metso and others, as well as an introduction to the training programmes, career opportunities and salary structures that apprentices might reasonably expect.
