Deritend takes action to protect UK jobs…

UK national industrial maintenance and support group Deritend Industries is taking positive action to protect skilled jobs in the face of a possible continued downturn.

Richard K Hale Group CEO of Deritend Industries,

“Ours is a skills based business providing essential electrical and mechanical repair and maintenance services, and while the downturn in manufacturing has affected most businesses, we can see that maintenance is a key part of moving forwards, while some capital projects and company expansions have been put on hold, businesses still need to run efficiently, we are launching several initiatives to help manufacturing and process industries cut costs, while taking steps to maintain service levels and protect our own skills base too.”

“We need to retain our skills and the only way to do that is to develop a strategy to retain jobs, we have changed shift patterns and moved to flexible working, allowing us to cut hours strategically, matching our staff levels closely to demand. By doing this in our UK workshops we are taking positive action to protect the jobs longer term”
