Are you well organised and skilled at using Sage and data base software? Do you enjoy negotiating and consider yourself to be an excellent communicator? We are looking for a team player with a flexible attitude and the desire and ability to grow and develop this role. You will take ownership of all procurement activities from material, sub-contact machining, and bespoke purchases ensuring on time delivery to meet our demanding schedule.  An engineering background would be an advantage but is not essential.

For over 30 years, Firmac Ltd. has led the way in the design and manufacture of high quality metal duct forming equipment and HVAC machinery manufactured and built entirely in the UK. We have customers in more than 50 countries throughout the world who rely on our machinery to produce sheet metal ductwork, which is then most commonly used in buildings to supply heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC).

 Responsibilities and Duties

  • Procurement of all technical items, raw materials, and consumables
  • Procurement and Liaison with all key sub-contract manufacturing suppliers
  • Procurement and stock control of selected components
  • Close liaison with Firmac Stores
  • Monitoring and control of stock parts and stock part pricing
  • Raise and control internal spares orders
  • Organise shipment of spare parts
  • Organise international and UK shipment of machinery
  • Raise packing notes and import paperwork if necessary

17 Swedish students from Wilhelm Moberg School, from the town of Emmaboda in Sweden, visited local engineering business Firmac as part of an educational trip to the town on 8th June.

The college brings sixth form students to Scarborough every year as part of their last compulsory English course giving them experience of communicating in English whilst learning about English culture and everyday life in the UK. The students who visited Firmac all have an interest in technology.

Firmac is a world leading manufacturer of sheet metal duct forming technology and global exporter so it was a good opportunity for the Swedish students to see a British engineering company.

Lewis Firth, Director at Firmac explains, “The students saw the engineering processes within the Firmac business , including mechanical and electrical design, software design, CNC machining, assembly and final testing areas.

We export around 85% of our sheet metal duct forming machines and Sweden is one of our growing markets. The selection of HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) equipment they saw today, in various stages of construction, will be exported to countries including Denmark, France, Italy, Dubai, Lebanon and two for their native country of Sweden.”

Anna Horling, teacher at Wilhelm Moberg School, added, “We strive to go on study visits that are within the field of education that the students have chosen. Therefore, some visit Town Hall, some visit private companies and talk about economical differences and similarities while others compare English production and technology to Swedish. We’ve now visited Firmac two years in a row and both years our students especially appreciated to see an industry that produces machines for production companies.”


Firmac once again exhibited at the Big 5 Dubai, Dubai World Trade Centre.

The Firmac team were on hand to advise on duct forming and roll forming technology and consult on factory layout for optimal duct production. 

Visitors were interested to learn about Flameshield® Fireduct, a non-coated fire-rated ductwork system manufactured on Firmac’s CGF1 Pro Duct or CGF1 MDF. This system is made from galvanised sheet metal and is the UK’s first non-coated, fire rated ductwork to achieve LPCB certification for both BS and EN standards. 

Flameshield Fireduct has been installed into some of the UK’s most prestigious buildings including the Shard, the Olymic Stadium, St Bartholomew's Hospital and AWE Aldermaston.


6-10 November 2017

Along with French agents Tyma Diffusion, Firmac exhibited at Batimat, Paris 2017.

Visitors were keen to see the ADF (Automatic Duct Former) and Nu-Loc duct seamer, both featured on the stand. The STR-750 Square to Round Duct Former was of particular interest to visitors who wanted to speed up production of square to round duct fittings.

All Firmac duct forming technology is designed and made by Firmac in the UK.


The ADF is ideal for duct workshops looking to make efficiencies and increase productivity when producing sheet metal ductwork. It automates the duct forming process with ease and efficiency and is available as standard with 2 to 6 uncoiling stations,


The Nu-Loc duct seamer, with mastic sealant is ideal for closing straight ducts, ensuring the closed seam is approved for low, medium and high pressure applications. Compact and time efficient, the Nu-Loc will produce a seam in less than 15 seconds; arguably the fastest seam closer on the market today.


This compact and versatile machine will form a square to round duct fitting in less than two minutes from one piece of metal, with only one join. It's versatility and mobility makes it ideal for on-site work too.

Literature on Firmac products is available in French. Please request information from Tyma Diffusion.


Firmac spent 3 days last week at Scarborough Engineering Week (11-13 October). The event, which is in it’s 7th year, welcomed primary and secondary school children to learn about careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) subjects. Firmac apprentices were on hand to talk about apprenticeships and the role of engineering in a modern company.

Firmac supports Engineering Week as part of an ongoing programme to promote engineering to students in the local area.

The event was hugely popular with aspiring engineers who have the opportunity to see and hear about opportunities in local manufacturing and engineering businesses. Firmac was one of many local organisations including, GCHQ, McCain, Dale Power Solutions and Unison Ltd who support this annual event.


Firmac will be attending the Big 5 International Building and Construction Show in Dubai. 

Learn from the experts about the latest developments in Duct Forming Machine and Flange Technology. 


HALL 1 - Stand G40


From October 18 to 29 October inclusive, Firmac will be offering the Nu-Loc Duct Seamer with Mastic Injection for the price of the standard Nu-Loc.  The Nu-Loc will be on show on the Firmac stand alongside a number of other high quality Firmac machinery and flanges including:






  • CGF3 Flange - Virtually air tight, this revolutionary flange has no stitching or spot welding.
  • Pod-Line - producing attenuators or 'silencer' pods with excellent sound absorbing properties.
  • Slide on Flange Line - producing up to 40 linear meters of flange in 1 minute.
  • STR-750, Square to Round Duct Former - making square to round fittings in less than 2 minutes - with one one join.


Please call the sales team for more information.

When deciding which duct forming machine to buy - consider these 10 advantages to buying a dedicated machine.

  1. The main reason to buy a dedicated machine is quality of product. This machine has been designed for a specific purpose and therefore the best possible duct will be consistently produced.  This is not a compromise or a bolt-on
  2. No need for compromise. This machine is “fit for purpose” and therefore more reliable and more efficient
  3. Optimum output. It will produce faster, saving time and increasing productivity
  4. Automation will ensure quality production at a much faster rate
  5. Operator friendly. It has been designed for a specific purpose and will be simpler, more intuitive and require less operator intervention
  6. Compact - efficient use of floor space
  7. The production process will be smoother as the material handling will be under control at all times - contrary to modular systems
  8. Full factory testing gives the customer protection - you see what you are getting
  9. Installation time of new machinery will be shorter and production downtime reduced
  10. You have more flexibility for future growth. When you decide to upgrade your machinery you will be choosing the latest and most up-to-date technology and won’t be restricted to old outdated equipment as part of a bolt on upgrade

Firmac is the world leading manufacturer of metal duct forming machinery. All machines are designed and built by duct working experts in the UK.
