Corporate Responsibility

Like many businesses in our area, Penny Engineering has roots in the mining industry. Our mining roots sparked a flair for innovation as well as an appreciation for the community we work in.

Community and engineering are important driving forces for us at Penny Engineering, so we are dedicated to giving back where we can. We invest time, effort and funds into local community causes and open a gateway for young engineers through our apprenticeship schemes. In fact, over 10% of our workforce are apprentices.
