The Company

Select Bag Sealers (SBS) is a small engineering business that manufactures and supports packaging machinery used in the food industry. The current owners acquired the business early in 2016 and have already made significant improvements to the working environment, efficiency and responsiveness of the organisation.

Part of a small privately owned group based near Leeds Bradford airport, the owners see the opportunity for considerable growth over the next few years both by offering excellent support to the UK customer base and by planned expansion into other geographical markets.

The Group employs around 35 people, sharing resources such as finance, HR and compliance. SBS has a small dedicated workforce focusing on machine assembly and customer support with on-site service and rapid spares availability. Since acquiring the business, the accounts and stock systems have been completely changed to streamline business processes. Whilst many further improvements are possible, the work so far has reaped huge benefits such as simplifying supply of spare parts, eliminating huge amounts of paperwork. The business is now far more responsive to its customers.

Working with a local engineering consultancy, we have converted the technical drawing base to 3D CAD (Solid Works) providing a strong foundation for product development.

The Opportunity

The Mechanical and Electrical Technician will report to the Production Co-Ordinator and will be responsible for:

  • Assembly of the Company’s machines and sub-assemblies efficiently and applying high standards of quality.
  • Assembly of electrical panels and other electrical aspects of the Company’s machines efficiently and applying high standards of quality.
  • Receive goods in that are fit for purpose.
