Lewis Gore, 20, will be trained to work on the CC milling and turning machines. The role will involve programming machines to produce tools to the specific demands of customers, inspecting final work and managing databases to ensure all vital information is accurately logged.

The future of our company lies in bringing on board new, younger team members who have enthusiasm, fresh ideas and youth

Andy Goode, the company's new managing director, said: "One of the key factors in Attwater's success to date is the technical knowledge and relationship building skills of our staff.
