Pat explained the importance of the programme at the event „Keltech have experienced significant growth in recent times. We have become recognised as one of the top suppliers in Europe in our category. Our ability to create top quality welding capacity has been the corner stone of this success and initiatives like this is what gives Keltech the competitive edge in the market!“
The Waterford based firm has received numerous accolades in recent times for their quality of product but perhaps none more impressive than the SQEP „Supplier of Excellence“ award from Caterpillar which was recently presented to Keltech for a 4th year running. This award (based on exemplary quality performance) makes Keltech part of an elite group of suppliers, in fact there is just a single digit number of suppliers in the Caterpillar fabrications category in Europe that hold this achievement.
Piotr Starosciak Keltech Welding Excellence leader whom conducted weekly independent testing of the graduates during the programme commented at the event „this is only the beginning of the journey for these graduates, they will all now go through an intensive 3 month on the job training period before full introduction to the welding capacity plan“
