Lee Hughes (24) has been appointed to the position of Applications Engineer at Sodi-Tech EDM.
Lee completed his Modern Apprenticeship at Sutton/Solihull College and then went on to complete his HNC. He has three years post qualification experience as a toolroom engineer. His new role at Sodi-Tech includes assisting customers with machine programming, demonstrating EDM technology and also training operators, both on site and at customers’ own premises.
Lee explains; “when I left school I knew I wanted a hands-on career – driving a desk did not appeal to me! So I went straight into the Modern Apprenticeship scheme – and I have enjoyed working in engineering ever since. This new position with Sodi-Tech is really interesting and very varied – I like meeting so many different people and every day is a new challenge.”
