Job Description: Production Technician
Who Are We?
Adaptavate is a business of the future, a dynamic team of engineers, thinkers, walkers, parents, dreamers, climbers, scientists, gardeners, friends, family and visionaries. People who think differently to make a big impact through our work… together.
We are establishing a leading business to develop products that will spearhead the transition to carbon negative building materials of the future. This is done by developing, producing, and commercialising the next generation of carbon negative, plant based, performance building materials for the construction sector. Adaptavate continue to launch new products, build revolutionary processes and grow our game changing team. Our products are designed for every builder, architect or homeowner to use or specify.
