Apprentices – Showpla Plastics
Plastic Injection Moulding Specialists Showpla Plastics decided to take on an electrical apprentice to help combat an aging workforce and ensure valuable skills were not lost.
Health and Safety and Assembly Manager Maxine Davies said: “With staff in our maintenance department approaching retirement age we thought we needed to bring someone in that could work with them and capture their knowledge. We have very specialist machinery and needed someone with that specialist training to maintain them.
“The college has been very good. We have good communications with them and they come in and see us on a regular basis. We would definitely consider taking on more apprentices through the college in the future.”
