"The aim of the tours and the National Manufacturing Day is to raise awareness to our local community and inform school leavers that Engineering and manufacturing is a rewarding and well paid career choice."

Jamie said that Gleam-SK had received "a great response from the schools", but there are plenty of spaces left for members of the public to get involved and learn more about Grantham’s "vibrant manufacturing scene".
