The right people help MJH Engineering deliver steel structures on time and within budget
“I can’t emphasise enough the importance of having the right people on your team,” says Malcolm Hammond, structural steel fabricator and founder of MJH Engineering.
The 110 person Seaview based business is built on a culture “where people like coming to work, and it’s work that is enjoyable,” he says.
MJH has sometimes been referred to the Hotel California…where you can check out, but you never leave “We don’t have a high level of staff turnover, people like working here.”
Malcolm says the company invests a lot of time into training and developing it’s people. “We take pride in giving people opportunites and giving back to our industry.”
At any one time the business employs between 6-8 apprentices.
“Sure, they might leave. But a surprising number come back to work for us.”
