Manrose awarded for apprenticeships

Posted on 9 Jul 2015 by The Manufacturer

Manrose, a UK ventilation manufacturer, has been awarded a commemorative plaque by training provider Key Training, for the training and work opportunities it provides to its apprentices.

Through the partnership with Key Training, Manrose has provided local young people the support needed to be successful in employment and a step on the ladder to success.

Manrose is committed to UK manufacturing and local employment which is illustrated through its ongoing expansion of its manufacturing facilities.

Comprising a 2,000 sqm head office complex in Slough, divided into administrative, sales and assembly areas, the company is responsible for logistics of an ever-growing product range of more than 2,000 items.

In addition, the company boasts a 4,000 sqm manufacturing centre in Reading and has opened a new distribution centre close by.

Operations director at Manrose, Chris Gibbs commented: “Manrose is a successful, growing company. Core to this success is our staff.

“We are therefore delighted to receive this award from Key Training, which is recognition of our success with Apprenticeships within both our Reading and Slough facilities. Since 2011, we have employed three young people following completion of their NVQs.

“The early achievement of our Procurement Manager completing an Apprenticeship has paved the way for a number of employees to follow suit, and they see the benefits of starting this journey with our Apprenticeship scheme.”

Presenting Gibbs with a commemorative plaque, business development manager at Key Training Limited, Jenny Hyam said: “We are thrilled to recognise Manrose with an award for its success and commitment to its Apprenticeship scheme.

We partner with many businesses on their training programmes in the UK and it’s wonderful when a company shows such dedication by investing in both its existing staff and also by providing local young people with an employment opportunity.”
