Mar 6, 2018

Jarrow,

As we spend 2018 celebrating 100 Years of KAEFER, we want to take this opportunity to celebrate another anniversary for KAEFER in the UK. The engineering & fabrication shop in Jarrow is operational for 20 years this year. The facility has produced quality fabrications for a range of industries and the workforce has developed into a highly skilled team, helping KAEFER in the UK to become recognised as a supplier to trust. Tom Middleton, our Production Manager, oversaw the construction of the building in 1997 and still manages the workshop to this day. Tom explained "I am extremely proud of what we have achieved over the last 20 years and I speak on behalf of the whole team when I say we are looking forward to the next 20.”
