With two production lines and our bumper paint zone, the busy Paint Shop is where vehicle body shells are pre-treated before being painted in topcoat booths and put through ovens to stove. Like every shop at Nissan, this area requires a highly specialised team of Maintenance Technicians to ensure it operates to the highest possible capacity.
Daniel joined Nissan in Production at just 18, working hard on the line before he moved into Maintenance. Over his 16-year career at Nissan he’s had the training and development to work his way up to his current position as a Stand-In Senior. That’s all down to Nissan’s talent recognition and the on and off-site training available – including international training opportunities.
Maintenance Technicians working in paint shop are responsible for a wide variety of equipment used to pre-treat, paint and cure. This includes apparatus you won’t find anywhere else in the plant, like ovens, topcoat booths and our limestone distribution and abatement facilities for environmental compliance.
Teams working in this area need skills in PLC control, spray technology, inverter drives and control, mechanical conveyor systems and vertical pumps.
Starting at Nissan an exciting challenge, full of possibilities, and there will be a lot to take in at first. Here is where you’ll find all the information you need to get started, understand your new company, our culture and where to go when you need support or have a query. It’s great to have you on board and we hope you enjoy your journey with us.
