“New and different challenges arise daily, and even although we do a lot a similar work, there are always different aspects in resolving problems, looking for new, better more efficient ways to do the things we do. The team at Forsyths across all departments are good to work with and where we can will always help and support our colleagues to get the job done. Like every job there are ups and downs, but we have to look for positives and continually learn from everything we do.
I have worked on an extensive variety of projects for the Oil & Gas industry for offshore in the North Sea and globally. As the environment offshore can be harsh, this requires robust design work and suitable fabrication solutions. Over the years these have required new design solutions utilising new design methods and in engineering working in new materials and all of this design and fabrication work scrutinised by specialists from the Oil & Gas industry to ensure our solutions are sound and the fabrications completed to the necessary high standards.”
After graduating from university, Elizabeth joined Forsyths as a Graduate Chemical Engineer. She said,
“I started at Forsyths as a graduate straight out of university, meaning I have had a lot to learn. I have been involved in a lot of our client enquiries. This means I have spent a lot of time interacting with clients to find out their needs and how we can help them reach their goals. Following this I also prepare their quotations for their equipment. What I enjoy most about my role is getting to meet so many different people and being involved in getting their projects started.”
Another Engineer who works at Forsyths is Kyle. He said,
“Forsyths has given me the ability to work in both industries, Oil and Gas as well as the Whisky Industry. Even though it is Cliché you do tend to learn something new every day whether it be about the job or yourself. Being able to take on a project and run it from start to finish is very fulfilling especially in the Whisky Industry as you usually get to see the finish product working. Forsyths has a great working environment where everyone is made to feel like part of the team which makes a great difference.”
