The Advertiser - Careers - - Front Page - SAM HART, 22

WORK in the man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try is giv­ing Sam Hart the best op­por­tu­nity to be­come a well-rounded en­gi­neer.

Hart is three months into a grad­u­ate pro­gram with ad­vanced man­u­fac­turer SAGE Au­to­ma­tion, which is head­quar­tered in Ade­laide with of­fices across Australia. Hart en­joys the di­ver­sity of work and ben­e­fits the large com­pany of­fers his ca­reer.

‘‘ It means I can ex­pe­ri­ence the many facets of de­sign, man­u­fac­ture and en­gi­neer­ing of both very large and small-scale projects,’’ he says.

He and ap­pren­tice elec­tri­cian Sam Benger, 21, (pic­tured on cover), who has worked at SAGE since 2010, be­lieve the com­pany has a bright fu­ture.

‘‘ I like that I am able to work in a field that I am in­ter­ested in and one that of­fers a broad range of ex­pe­ri­ences,’’ Benger says.

SAGE Au­to­ma­tion designs, builds and pro­vides on­go­ing sup­port for con­trol sys­tems and au­to­mated equip­ment in the de­fence, re­sources and util­i­ties sec­tors as well as in food and bev­er­age, au­to­mo­tive, white­goods and heavy-in­dus­try man­u­fac­tur­ing.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Adrian Fa­hey says the com­pany was founded in the man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor.

‘‘ There is still a sig­nif­i­cant amount hap­pen­ing within the man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor in this coun­try, with a def­i­nite fo­cus on im­prov­ing ef­fi­cien­cies to re­main com­pet­i­tive,’’ he says.
