Mecalac welcomes new apprentices

Filed under: Uncategorized — EHN Team @ 1:34 pm

Coinciding with the National Apprenticeship Week initiative, Mecalac Construction Equipment UK Ltd has welcomed nine new apprentices to its Coventry manufacturing facility, as part of an educational partnership with Derby College.

Each studying towards an NVQ in Performing Manufacturing Operations, the students have completed their classroom-based period and will now gain practical experience working across departments including Quality and Production.

Alongside supporting personal development and building real-world skills, the 12-month placement will provide hands-on experience and put academic theory into practice.

Gregg Horne, General Manager at Mecalac, said, “The biggest challenge facing the UK construction industry is undoubtedly its skills deficit. Currently, the recruitment of new talent is failing to keep up with the rate of retirement, which is limiting activity and increasing labour costs.

“At Mecalac, we wanted to tackle the issue head-on and, as such, have adopted a joined-up approach to improving skills and knowledge. Through our training initiatives, we target every stage of the education system – from primary schools right up to Universities. The programme even includes training modules for experienced employees to learn new skills and competences.”
