About the employer

EWM has already been active in the UK and Ireland for six years and is established as a brand there. This proved reason enough to set up a branch of its own in this location in 2009. There is a clear objective of becoming a major player in this market by opening a new sales and service centre in the northeast of England (Morpeth/Northumberland). For more than 50 years we have been dealing with the question of how we can achieve maximum quality, cost-effectiveness and breadth of applications in the field of arc welding for our customers. As a family-run, medium-sized company, our aim is to do simply more every day to meet our customers' specific welding requirements in an optimum way with innovative services. Our "simply more" claim also means simply providing more quality.
