SPECIALIST technical and engineering recruiter Willcox Matthews has announced that it has gone into partnership with the Centinal Group, distributors for some of the biggest brands in the hydraulic, pneumatic and cable jointing tooling industry.

The Centinal Group is the umbrella company formed when MF Hydraulics, Central Engineering & Hydraulic Services and Central Engineering Services merged 20 years ago.

In late December 2014, The Centinal Group continued to expand with Thamesair Limited, a Pneumatic Parker Distributor joining the group.

The merger created the premier hydraulics and engineering group in South Central England.

Les Jenkins, Group CEO, said: “It is great to have Willcox Matthews on board as our recruitment partner.

“I have been working closely with Josh Bryan and the team, making sure they understand the company ethos and long-term plan for the business.

“By utilising the group’s staff experiences, we distribute, design, manufacture, and market a full range of hydraulic, pneumatic, cable jointing and engineering products.

“Our customers require a high level of service and quality. As a result, we provide a niche service for maintenance and production. Each customer requirement provides substantial improvements to their performance”.

Josh Bryan, consultant at Willcox Matthews, said: “It has been great supporting the Centinal Group; they have a reputation for attracting, developing and retaining exceptional people.

“Willcox Matthews are committed to ensuring the future growth and success of the business, by providing the right talent who are wanting a long-term future with this expanding organisation”.
