WE ARE RECRUITING!: We are looking for apprentices. More information can be found here.



WJS UK began trading in January 2005 based in Boston Spa, Wetherby to provide UK sales, service and support for Water Jet Sweden AB, Europe’s leading manufacturer of precision 2D and 3D water jet cutting machines. The business grew rapidly after being awarded a number of large and prestigious contracts from Rolls Royce, Titanium international and Airproducts Plc.

Now in our 13th year with a staff of 8, the majority of whom have at least 10 years service, our achievements include the setup of a demo centre in Wetherby to allow for test cutting and customer training, ISO 9000 and more recently ISO 1400 accreditations and in 2012 we started our apprentice scheme in conjunction with York college for technical engineers.
