In a tight mechanical engineering labour market, it has become increasingly difficult to resource projects with quality people at short notice. This is particularly true when large contracts with tight timeframes are won, over-extending existing engineering teams. Often there isn’t the luxury to recruit new permanent resources and get them up to speed in time; any new engineer needs to hit the ground running.
An innovative solution to this is project-based resourcing; bringing in skilled engineers, as and where needed, for the duration of a project. We have had great success implementing this model around the country and are expanding in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty based out of our office at the Waikato Innovation Park.
By integrating our engineers directly into the client’s team, at their premises, we can ensure that clear and efficient lines of communication exist through daily face to face interactions. Caliber engineers know our client’s business, processes, and systems inside out—so they can deliver results and clients see a return on their investment quickly.
Project-based resourcing also has wider benefits to businesses wanting to operate at peak efficiency. By drawing on a pool of external resources our clients can reduce their risk, overheads and recruitment costs. Caliber engineers help support and upskill your existing staff and draw on the experience of our 34 engineers across the country to solve complex technical challenges. Businesses can also have peace of mind when tendering for work, knowing that there is a pool of additional personnel available should they need it.
For the last 18 months we’ve been working closely with the engineers at Ligar in Hamilton. Also based at the Innovation Park, Ligar is an innovative company whose polymer technology is used for extracting molecules for either high value extracts or contaminant removal. Ligar is currently going through a phase of growth to upscale its technology and bring it to market across the globe. With the support of Caliber, specialised reactor equipment has been developed to take the next step towards large scale manufacture of their polymer.
