Dymond Engineering is pleased to launch the new improved design for our Galvanised Pheasant and Partridge Game Feeders.
Both the feeders have had small re-designs, primarily for keeping out stock, deer and other pests. This is particularly apparent in the Pheasant feeder which now comes with a kit of removable restrictor bars for keeping out deer and stock, as well as rodents and other pests.
Dymond Engineering is pleased to support a number of fabulous ‘house’ charities each year which we are particularly fond of, or which our customers are supporting through physically challenging fund raising activities!
This month donations have been made to Shine which supports those affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus, thanks to Shaun Pitchers of Shine, www.shinecharity.org.uk; to Reach Inclusive Arts, thanks to Gareth Preece of Railston, www.reachinclusivearts.org.uk and to Prospect Hospice, thanks to Lisa Whellams, www.prospect-hospice.net and to Childrens Hospice South West, thanks to Tracy Harvey.
The fantastic work these charities do is incredible and the support they provide to those in need is invaluable. We are grateful to the amazing endeavors of those who take on these incredible challenges in order to raise much needed funds, and we at Dymond are pleased to play our small part.
We have a vacancy for a Development Engineer with hands-on experience of working in a metalwork production environment, responsible for developing metal modular shopfittings and display equipment.
Working closely with customers and their product designs you will develop their ideas into technical plans and prototypes for production, ensuring the finished products meet customer expectations and can be made reliably and consistently.
Problem-solving skills, creativity, and the ability to work in a small business team environment are required qualities. Hands-on engineering experience in a production environment is more important than knowledge of design software.

Extra TIG and MIG welding capacity
It is with great pleasure that Dymond Engineering welcomes a new member to the welding team.
Paul Rowe joined our welding team today, increasing our TIG and MIG welding capacity which will really help as the workload increases. It’s day one but Paul is already proving to be a valuable member of the welding team.
We look forward to having you on board Paul.
Sue and Mike of Dymond Engineering attended an interesting North Devon business event last week. The event was held jointly by RBS Bank – soon to be Williams & Glyn – and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) at the Barnstaple Hotel.
The event could be the first of a series in North Devon if there is sufficient demand, which feedback indicates there would be. It was attended by a range of businesses from across North Devon, including engineering and manufacturing as well as public sector and healthcare providers.
There was a positive mood of optimism amongst the manufacturers, including Dymond Engineering, which are seeing an improvement in their markets.
The evening was split into two parts. Firstly a presentation from the CMI which focused on 5 key aspects to drive business improvement. This was followed by a presentation from Williams & Glyn about the new bank and critically their criteria for assessing funding applications, which is very useful if you are thinking about making an application as the market improves.
The NDMA’s monthly breakfast meeting this week focused on initiatives to identify and inspire future leaders in engineering, helping to address the growing shortage of engineers in the UK.
Presentations were made by EDT (Engineering Development Trust) which works with young people age 11-21, and Arkwright Scholarship Trust, which works with students who apply in year 11 and supports them right up until age 25.
These and many other organisations provide a continum of activites and opportunities to inspire, support and train potential young engineers from age 4 to 25, and to maintain their interest in the face of so many other competing forces.
There are exciting opportunities for companies to get involved as sponsors, which also gives the companies access to the rich talent pool of students and alumni for the future development of their engineering business.
It’s an incredibly busy summer period here at Dymond Engineering with all hands to the pump. However Sue managed to make time to attend this month’s North Devon Manufacturer’s Association’s (NDMA) committee meeting held at the new Barnstaple Work Hub.
Prior to the NDMA meeting we were treated to a tour of the impressive Barnstaple Work Hub, along with a presentation by the business which hosts the hub – the Design Shop. Design Shop moved into spacious new premises last year and set up the Work Hub along side its core sign and corporate furniture business.
It was then onto the NDMA committee meeting and on the agenda was the new ‘Careers in North Devon Manufacturing’ brochure which should be available in November. Among other pertinent topics we also discussed work with the Heart of the South West LEP and the South West Peninsula Manufacturers Network, and the opening of the North Devon Engineering and Innovation Centre at Petroc.
