Flexibility

As are no two people are the same, no role is fixed. We're a young company, and so believe you should play a major part in shaping your position.

MADA Workshop was formed in 2018 under the umbrella of MADA Group Ltd. Born out of the maker movement, a passion for making and helping others to create, MADA Workshop launched in 2019 offering CNC production services, from one-off prototypes to batch/volume production solutions. This is only the beginning however, and there are vast plans for expansion with many additional processes, services and products in the pipeline.

If you’re interested in (or already part of) the design, manufacturing or woodworking worlds, and relish the opportunity to help grow a business (and grow with it), then you could be just the person needed to help take MADA to the next level. Even if you’re just interested in making things with limited experience, if you’re passionate about making that’s very valuable itself!
