We are delighted that we have secured the services of some great new employees:-


Seamus Toale has joined our Melbourne based service team as Okuma Australia’s second Apprenticed appointment.

Seamus already has a wealth of training logged , including Certificate 11- Electro-technology,  Work safety in the Construction Industry 2011 and Basic Emergency Life Support and First Aid.

So after leaving school, Seamus has been pretty busy seeking skills and knowledge that just happen to suit our requirement perfectly now and will continue his Engineering studies at Swinburne, Wantirna in conjunction with his work at Okuma.

Chris Farnworth has joined Okuma Australia in Melbourne and is an accomplished maintenance fitter who has gained hands on CNC experience at Saint-Gobain Abrasives, Chiron-Werke and PBR Automotive after completing his Certificate III in Engineering – Mechanical Trade and CNC programming Certificate 4.


Chris brings an immediate and welcome lift to the Victorian service crew and we look forward to the skills and knowledge he can bring to Okuma and our customers.   



Alan Forbes also brings a welcome lift in capacity to the Sydney operation of Okuma Australia. New South Wales is a huge territory and we felt the time was right to extend our service capacity there. Having decided that, we were delighted that Alan accepted a position with Okuma and his work so far has been of invaluable assistance to the crew in Sydney.

A toolmaker by trade, Alan hails from Ireland where he worked with toolmakers, automation and robotics solution houses and engine component builders.
