Parvalux takes pride in its involvement in the community, both with small and larger-scale contributions, such as funding student projects and offering invaluable work experience alongside our eager employees.

Our new “Parvalux House” helps to provide space for these students to learn and experience the daily life at Parvalux. The large variety of teams allows a broad range of skills to be passed on from our specialists, giving an enriching week that students find both enjoyable and professional.

We recently hosted a work experience placement for David Lock, a sixth-form student studying Maths, Physics and Computer Science with an interest in robotics.

He spent time mainly with our marketing team seeing what Parvalux do to promote the brand online. David also learnt about the tasks involved in a typical day at our offices. As well as this he was given insights into the long process of building a motor, with some valuable hands-on experience alongside Design Engineers and Machinists.

Parvalux Work ExperienceDavid spent part of his time with a member of product design. Here he gained valuable insight into the Innovation process and the New Product Innovation (NPI) framework. This time provided the opportunity for David to experience an array of topics extending from Product Design Specification through conceptualisation and parametric CAD. David took it all in his stride and was already familiar with some aspects encountered, and he could correlate some of the processes to his chosen career path.

He also worked with us to help plan our stand at the Bournemouth Air Festival this year, taking inspiration from previous Parvalux and Maxon stands to design an informative yet creative display that lots of people would enjoy regardless of age.

James Cope, Marketing Manager said ‘David has been a pleasure to work with this week, he has brought curiosity, and a creative mindset to the Air Festival stand project with a design and layout for this year’s STEM village.’

James continued ‘showing interest in all aspects of the business operations, colleagues who have worked with David during the week spoke highly of his enthusiasm and questioning.’

Parvalux wish David the best of luck in his future studies and career.
