Investing in Staff Training

IPC standards have become the only internationally accredited standards for the electronics manufacturing industry.  Xitek considers staff training of the utmost importance to maintain product quality and adhere to ISO:9001 - 2008 standards.

Paul Pidgeon of STEM Training conducted two training sessions for the Xitek Production Team with a 100% pass rate.

A tailored course in specialist hand-soldering skills to IPC-610 standards was taken by production team members, Martin Maeers, Marg Hook and Marie Marston.  Their skills were fine tuned for the processes involved in the current Xitek product range.  As a result our customers can be confident in the quality of their product.

Andrew Perkins: Land's End to John O'Groats

Acorns Hospice

 

I decided, after hitting the big 50 last year, that it would be a great idea to do something very memorable. Along with a lifelong friend, we both signed up to embark on a cycle journey from Land's End to John O'Groats.  That was the easy bit!  Then the training began, and on 5 September 2015, along with many hundreds of other cyclists, we set off on the 970 mile journey, which I completed on 13 September.  Without the messages of support from colleagues and friends, I would not have been able to complete this amazing experience.

At John O'Groats; the finish line
