    • Experience folding mild steels, aluminium, and stainless materials
  • Diverse experience interpreting technical drawings and troubleshooting bending programs

  • Excellent attention to detail and an attitude conducive to excellence in Quality Control
  • Working knowledge of production process including job clocking, NCR/quality, basic ERP processes
  • A forklift ticket

Please forward your resume and we will be in contact with suitable applicants to arrange an interview at our Meadowbrook facility or over the phone.

  • Weekly payroll, early Friday knock-off, opportunity for growth in a growing business
  • Varied and interesting workload from 4000 off single folds to 1 off 20+ fold parts regularly being manufactured on-site at Express Metal Products.
