A former Rawmarsh Community School pupil has joined the team at internationally acclaimed engineering firm Magnomatics.

Owen Birks started his formal training at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in September, after an initial few weeks with the team as an apprentice at Magnomatics.

Magnomatics, which produces industrial products based on magnetic gear technology, has been a strong supporter of Work-Wise, the Sheffield-based charity which promotes engineering and manufacturing careers for 14 to 16-year-olds.

Dave Latimer, chief executive officer, said: “It’s great seeing our work inspire the next generation of engineering talent.”
