By Laura Hatton09 February 2015

Konecranes UK has appointed Natasha Cairns to field service technician.

Cairns is the first female technician at the company and is situated at Konecranes’ North East Service District in Gateshead, UK. She has completed Konecranes’ Techmasters 1 induction course and is in the process of undertaking training to become a service technician.

Pat Campbell, Konecranes director of Europe West, said, “We are obviously delighted to have Natasha onboard in the North East and we are extremely confident that she will prove to be a popular and capable member of the 34-strong team of field service technicians that look after a diverse range of customers in what is a strategically important part of the country.

“While Natasha’s appointment marks a milestone in the history of Konecranes here in the UK, it reaffirms the company’s commitment to recruiting only the highest calibre engineers. Indeed, as our product and service offering continues to develop, so too must the human resource that is dedicated to support it. Our team of field service technicians is therefore only set to go from strength-to-strength, as we already have plans to bring onboard more new members in 2015.”

Natasha Cairns, said, “From a young age I always had a passion for electronics, so being able to work in this field for such a well known and globally recognised name as Konecranes is like a dream come true. The training that has been extended to me so far has been first class and I intend to work hard to develop my career within what is acknowledged as a very progressive and dynamic organisation. I am really excited putting things into practice on a day-to day basis, working with whole team associated with the north east service district.”
