Opening Our Doors for National Manufacturing Day

We’re throwing open our doors to school students and members of the public for Make UK’s National Manufacturing Day!

Join us on Thursday 7th July to celebrate the Great British manufacturing industry and get a glimpse behind the scenes of what we do here at Househam.

Visitors will get to tour the workshop facilities, meet the team, listen to talks and see our famous machines in person as we pledge to promote our fantastic engineering and manufacturing sector.

We will also be highlighting some of the exciting job opportunities available, from designers to engineers.

Our MD Robert Willey said: “Make UK’s open house initiative is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the inner workings of the manufacturing sector, and one that we’re proud to support.

“The Househam team includes expert engineers who help deliver our commitment to providing high-quality, integrated machines to customers around the world. We’re hoping to see plenty of new faces and old friends on the day so that the public can fully appreciate the benefits of the UK’s engineering and manufacturing industry.”

At Househam, we are always looking to invest in the futures of local young people looking to kickstart their careers in manufacturing.

“We are continuously seeking creative young designers and engineers to help us to produce some ground-breaking products,” said Jenna from our aftersales department.

“We offer a diverse range of career opportunities spanning areas such as administration, design, engineering, finance, HR, IT, marketing and communication, product development, production and research.”

There are two tours running during the day from 10am until 12pm and 1pm to 3pm. Booking is essential, and spaces are limited to 20 people per session.

If you would like to take part in this unique opportunity, contact Jenna Smith on 01400 276 031 or email [email protected].

Visit us at the 137th Lincolnshire Show!

Following on from LAMMA at the end of May and Cereals 22 earlier this month we’re preparing for the next show on the agricultural calendar – The Lincolnshire Show on 22nd and 23rd June.

Attracting over 60,000 visitors each year the show is the county’s flagship event and showcases the best that Lincolnshire has to offer in terms of food, farming, education, heritage and entertainment.

This year’s event will celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, taking on a royal purple colour scheme. The Showground will be dressed in colourful bunting and stands will be decorated with a royal theme to create a street party across the showground.

As usual we’ll have our latest edition Spirit, Air-Ride and Harrier self-propelled sprayers on display all featuring the latest updates to the engine canopy, Jaguar Claas Cab and the new GPS, NavGuide.

The team will also be on hand to answer any queries you may have about our sprayers, technology or after-sales support services.

This year we’ll also be giving visitors the chance to win a luxury hamper from the famous Myers Bakery in Horncastle by guessing the number of balloons we’ve managed to squeeze into one of the sprayer cabs on display on the day!

Come and find us on Avenue 3 stand number 27. We look forward to seeing you there!

Ohhhh what a year! But how are we moving forward!

Hi all,

Well what an 18 months it has been! But as we move into the next stage of lockdown lifting we have taken some time to reflect on the time at Househam Sprayers.

Our production team have continued to build machines and renovate preowned machines throughout the whole of the pandemic. We have launched our latest edition AirRide and Harrier with the updates to the engine canopy, Jaguar Claas Cab and the new GPS, NavGuide.

It was great to be back at Cereals 2021, with all of 2020 shows being cancelled we had not had the opportunity to see some people for over 18 months. I think I speak for all the sales team when I say that we have certainly missed the shows and being able to visit customers. We are back on the road a lot now, with several shows popping up throughout the calendar and beginning our demo tour. Today Nick and Barry are at Driffield Show, pop by and say Hi!

With a big office and production space we have been able to allow the team to work flexibly, working some days in the office and some days at home. Many of us found enjoy working in the office, missing the interaction and fish and chip Fridays, although others enjoyed the flexibility to work from home. Was because you can wear pjs all day at home?

We have welcomed new faces to the team, seen internal promotions and enabled our team to all individually grow by offering training opportunities. Many of us now doubly jabbed those customer facing or out of personal choice are testing regularly. We are excited to move forward and have lots of things to show you further down the line.

As a company, we have decided to keep the Covid-19 measures in place, so please social distance, use hand sanitizer and wear a mask if you wish to, when visiting our stores or a visit.  

I wonder what the next 18 months will bring, for now though keep safe!
