Seal a new career with Hodgson's

Due to continued expansion, Hodgson Sealants are seeking an experienced Multiskilled Maintenance Engineer to join the team.

The company was founded by Peter Hodgson 50 years ago. His vision was to have a Beverley based putty manufacturing facility to employ local people. The company was formed with under 10 employees. Hodgson Sealants are now the largest independent sealant manufacturer in the UK and are now standing at 80 staff, despite the vast growth the original feel of the family-run business has remained.
