Manufacturer Awards 24 Permanent Contracts
Leading global manufacturer, CMP Products, has rewarded 24 temporary workers for their contribution and loyalty with the offer of permanent employment.
Part of the British Engines Group, CMP manufactures cable glands, cleats and accessories for a range of global industries including oil & gas, renewables and rail.

The permanent roles cover several areas of the company’s manufacturing sites in the north east of England and includes assembly operatives, machine operators, labourers, welders and lathe operators.
Taking on temporary workers is commonplace in the manufacturing industry as it allows employers to flex their workforce in accordance with demand, so whilst this does not signal an increase in the overall numbers of workers for CMP, it does bring stability for both employer and employee.
Vince Patterson, Chief Executive Offer said:
“As the world begins to see light at the end of the tunnel from the COVID-19 pandemic, there are signs of a bright year ahead for CMP and therefore stability is paramount.”
“Feedback from our temporary workforce tells us that employees enjoy working at CMP, and we are delighted to be able to reward 24 people in these key areas. This demonstrates that whenever possible, we are committed to retaining talented and committed people within our business.”
Mr. Patterson added:
“Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to invest in our business as much as possible, purchasing new equipment, developing new products and investing in our people; all of which are important to the growth and success of CMP.”
CMP currently has 300 employees in the North East region alone, alongside 61 further employees in its global office locations including the USA, Singapore and Australia.
Gary Stephenson, Labourer, who was delighted to be issued a permanent contract said:
“My new contract provides me with a positive outlook for the future, as well as the added sense of security.
“I enjoy coming to work knowing that I am a permanent member of the team and that the work I do is installed on some of the most prestigious engineering projects around the world.”
