Following on from our previous announcement, Alucast employee Louis Sartorius has recently completed and graduated from the Alucast 2-year Traineeship to be integrated into the business as the new Continuous Improvement Engineer.
After completing his A-Levels, Louis took a gap year from his academic studies to gain some industrial experience and to start to obtain a basic skillset in our industry. While here at Alucast, Louis spent most of his year in the then newly established machine shop facility, learning the basics in how the machining side of the business functioned and how the CNC machines/programmes operate, managing multiple machines and machining our components to the customers required specifications.
After completing his gap year, Louis decided to head back into education and got enrolled at the University of Lancaster to study a degree in Biology and Psychology, after attending Lancaster University for 3 years, Louis successfully completed the degree and left the University in 2017.
In 2018, Louis once again began working here at Alucast, in a similar capacity to his previous employment within the company. After some time, Louis accepted the offer to begin a 2-year Traineeship which would see him rotate between all the departments within the company, ranging from Sales, Manufacturing, Quality and Foundry. All while attending the City of Wolverhampton College studying a HNC in Mechanical Engineering.
As a result of Louis hard work and commitment, he has now finished his Traineeship and has qualified as an Engineer and has been offered and accepted the role of Continuous Improvement Engineer at Alucast.
We would like to wish Louis the best of luck in his new role and hope that he will continue to develop his skillset as an engineer and to bring continued improvement to the Alucast team.
