Nov. 8, 2011 - PRLog -- ELLESMERE PORT company Arena Instrumentation’s successful expansion into two European countries at a time when businesses were facing serious economic challenges had been ‘fascinating’ to see, said MP Andrew Miller during a visit to its Rossmore Business Village HQ.

A Member of the House of Commons Science and Technology select committee, Mr Miller was touring the head offices of Britain’s largest independent calibration and maintenance service provider which is celebrating its 25th year in business.

Managing Director David Dawe told the MP that 2011 had been a landmark year for the company with the opening of new bases in Sweden and Denmark. The move into Europe was based on extensive research which showed considerable demand for the services that Arena provided to its clients.

Meanwhile the British bases of the company continued to be busy thanks to Arena’s blue chip client list which included well-known names such as Rolls Royce, Astra Zeneca and the NHS.

Arena’s Director of Services Kevin Dobson told Mr Miller that the company’s teams of highly skilled technical staff had been crucial to their success. Technicians and engineers were regularly dispatched to all corners of the globe to work on major projects on behalf of clients.

However, a marked fall in the availability of highly skilled labour had made recruitment more difficult for the company. That was why Arena had set up its own Apprenticeship Scheme to ensure a steady supply of highly trained personnel.

Mr Dawe said he was disappointed that companies, like Arena, who invest heavily in staff training programmes, received no financial support for the running of apprenticeship schemes which ultimately benefit the country as a whole.

Mr Miller was then introduced to Senior Manager Cliff Bathgate, who overseas the apprenticeship scheme, trainee calibration technician Michael Frackowiak and newly qualified instrument technician Josh McKeary.

After the MPs visit Mr Dawe said: “As someone with an interest in science and technology, I think Mr Miller really appreciated what we do here at Arena.
