TM Services, a division of T.M. Machinery Sales, has continued to expand its apprentice base by taking on engineering student Liam Dunkley as an apprentice service co-ordinator.

Liam, aged 20, is in his first year of a three-year engineering apprenticeship at Leicester College. He currently spends three days a week providing technical support for T.M. Services’ manager Dave Roberts combined with two days a week at college.

The importance of the Apprentice Scheme at TM Services

Said T.M. Machinery director Matt Pearce: “Liam is the second apprentice we have taken on recently in our service division. This demonstrates our long- term commitment to local young people and to providing thorough training for our service division staff.”

He added that they expect to recruit another engineering apprentice in the next year or two.

Last year the company’s first apprentice service engineer, Jordan Wills, was named Apprentice of the Year out of his class of 40 at South Leicestershire College.

Established in 1984, our service division is where our company started and remains at the heart of our business today. Our team of experienced engineers and apprentices work all over the UK and can service and maintain a wide range of industrial woodworking machinery.

We can source parts and technical assistance for even the oldest of woodworking machines and our back office team have decades of experience in resolving our customer’s machinery problems, providing prompt, cost effective solutions.
