Latest technology

Formrite try to keep abreast of all the most up-to-date technology. For instance, in designing test rigs, we utilise the very latest National Instruments LabVIEW software – this gives us the edge over the competition as we can offer many additional features on our test rigs that our competitors can’t. Utilising a PC based system, many advanced tools and features are available to us to ensure that our testing rigs are the most technically advanced for our customers’ specific requirements.

Personnel policy

Formrite have a policy of introducing young talented people into the working environment. With the help of our appointed training provider “InComm”, we engage 2 new apprentices per year. We have done this for the past two years and intend to continue doing so for many years to come. In this way we can ensure the stability and growth of the company, ensuring a fully qualified workforce able to handle the day to day challenges of production requirements.

Health and safety and environmental

The company adopts a strict adherence to health and safety legislation with the safety and welfare of our workforce being paramount. We pride ourselves on a near negligible accident record. Each of our employees is important to us therefore it is our duty as a company to ensure a safe and clean working environment.

Formrite is working towards ISO14001 environmental standards; the company adheres to the best environmental practice and recycle whenever possible, disposing of our non-recyclables responsibly.
