Family and friends of Sheffield Forgemasters staff got the chance to see what the Brightside Lane company does when it held its annual open day during the Global Manufacturing Festival: Sheffield.
Employees ran guided tours of the foundry, forge, machine shops, rolls and melt shop and several other parts of the business.
Among those attending was Dr Walid Albermani, 63, from Birmingham whose son Dr Sinan, is a development engineer in Forgemasters’ research and development department.
He said: “The entire day was a fantastic experience, to not only see different areas of the site but also to understand more about the company and the sector my son works for. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself.”
Forgemasters also staged another open day, during which 200 pupils from city schools were taken around the works by apprentices and a VIP tour for delegates to the Festival.
