Our People

    We understand the value our team brings to our business and we appreciate them. Each one in their own right has an important part to play and we encourage our team to:


    Use their diverse and differing skills to enhance every aspect of our business


    Think and act as owners of the business to provide our customers with great service and products


    Bring to us innovative ideas and improved ways of working


    Stand on Company values and learn from them

    Training philosophy

    We would like each of our team members to feel that they have a career and not just a job at Covenant Tool and Die. Each person in our business has a role profile that gives them a full view of what is required of them in that role. Where a team member doesn't fully meet the role requirements, we provide training, in house and externally, to close these gaps. We have created a learning environment that we are really proud of. We believe that skilled staff are happy and productive.


    Covenant Tool and Die is an accreditated training facility for Plastic Mould Makers, Tool, Jig and Die Makers and Toolmakers.

    We have partnered with Wescol TVET College (, NTIP (National Tooling Initiative - and MERSETA ( Our partnership allows us to identify students who have completed N2 and to assist them with their practical experiential learning. All students are either registered with MERSETA or NTIP who will examine them and when found competent will award them with their trade papers.
