This will involve taking samples, testing, sending samples to a lab, and writing on-site reports/specialist recommendations for chemical and mechanical products and services.

The role involves talking with the customer about what changes need to be made, assessing their equipment and processes to see whether efficiency can be boosted by providing equipment, operating advice, or maintenance improvements.
