Job Alert! Trainee Fitter/Patterner

Tecsew is a long-established firm which has always been based in Gosport.

After more than 38 years of trading it is gaining an enviable worldwide reputation for the quality of its yacht canopies and other marine textiles.

Industry recognition has included a glowing review in Yachting Monthly, the first time the yacht owners' bible had awarded any product design a '10 out of 10'

To cope with demands and expansion plans, Tecsew successfully moved from the company's long-standing Gosport premises to a new purpose-built factory in Daedalus in August 2017. The new facility expands the company's footprint from 5,000 to 8,500 sq ft. As well as the production floor, there is a mezzanine level with rooms for offices and client meetings, plus a bright new reception and car park. This all gives a much better impression of the business to prospective clients and creates a better working environment for our team.
