I agree - it's that middle word that doesn't make any sense.

Yes, I think you are right, I can see bar and Material now as there is an i in the word. What on earth is that though and how does it fit with engineering clerk?

The first letter of what could be bar isn't quite the same as the capital C of clerk.
