International Women in Engineering Day 2018 - #Raising The Bar - Saturday 23 June

Ekspan are proud to support ‘International Women in Engineering Day 2018’ – a campaign by the Women’s Engineering Society http://www.inwed.org.uk/ to raise the profile of women in engineering and recognise their achievements.

We would like to take this opportunity to recognise and celebrate the contribution of our female staff to the engineering field - particularly in the Year of the Engineer https://www.yearofengineering.gov.uk/.

Our female staff members total eight in number with work areas covering project engineering, product/service sales, procurement for manufacture/site operations, service/administrative support, finance, and design/marketing.

Our female staff play an invaluable role in supporting our engineering projects with their skills, dedication and commitment. As a company we take great pride in supporting them and all our staff to learn and develop through team-work, collaborative problem solving and flexible working:


“Ekspan has provided me with a wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience working on site projects” – (Lisa Webster – Project Engineer)


Ekspan believes a balanced, inclusive and skilled workforce not only contributes to the company’s growth and success but also, and perhaps more importantly, reflects the communities we serve and builds aspiration for all.
