Employment is a two way partnership, with both the company and employees continually developing skills and knowledge. Local company Australian Pump has cultivated a comprehensive training program that ensures staff are able to develop and thrive, and provides opportunities for advancement.

One beneficiary of this successful training program has been Mal Patel. Originally from Gujarat in India, Mal joined the team over two years ago. Mal had a background in the pump industry and was easily able to slot into the company’s sales team.

“Working with a number of our key customers in a demanding aftermarket support role he impressed me with his commitment to service and positive attitude,” said Aussie Pumps Sales Manager Brad Farrugia. “With our in-house training program he has been able to develop his technical knowledge and personal skills to a point that we’ve been able to promote him into a leading sales role in our High Pressure Division,” he said.

Australian Pump is a leading manufacturer and supplier of pumps and pressure cleaners for the rural and commercial markets. It runs out of a 2 ½ hectare site in Norwest’s boutique industrial business park.

The company is keen to recruit and train local fitters and engineers, as well as sales staff, who want to work in a stimulating environment.
