The AEMT will be supporting the Westin Drives open day for this year’s northern meeting. All members are invited to make the most of this opportunity to view Westin Drives’ brand new refurbished workshops.

To start the day, members are invited to the Cedar Court Hotel nearby for networking and a series of presentations from the AEMT, WEG and others.

We will then join the Westin Drives open day from 11am for a chance to look round the brand-new facility. Giving members the chance to meet the team and discover the breadth of work, from rewinding, repairs and technical services to CNC precision engineering.

You'll be able to exchange industry news and views with specialists from SKF, WEG, Lenze, Sprint and BPX.

If you're up for it, you can even try your hand at rewinding an electric motor under the watchful eye of a qualified engineer.

After a guided tour of the new workshop and parts of the adjoining mill, where their precision engineering departments and stores are located, you'll be able to relax with a pint of locally brewed real ale and a sandwich from the hog roast.

There will also be a prize draw and discount vouchers for their in-house technical training courses.

To reserve your hog roast, make sure you fill in the booking form here.
