Ultra Electronics is without doubt at the forefront of providing digital recording solutions

…After completing 24 years of military service, I was keen to find employment with a progressive technology company.

Ultra Electronics is without doubt at the forefront of providing digital recording solutions and this is one of the main reasons that the work as a Project Engineer within the company is so demanding but also very rewarding.

I have enjoyed several overseas trips to oversee the installation and training of systems for which I have been responsible. The travel has also helped in further developing the relationships the company has with the customers, agents and suppliers across the world.

Colleagues within the company are always very supportive and there is always a good feeling of team spirit within all sections of Ultra…
