Meet The Apprentice – Jack

Posted In: Meet The Apprentice |

The third apprentice to start working for us this year is Jack. Jack is our production managers son and he’s in his first year of a three-year fabrication and welding apprenticeship with our local college. Most of our apprentices come in through a fabrication and welding apprenticeship because this is the nearest we can get to the skills we need but they all start their traditional panel making training with us at the same time because the colleges don’t teach the specific skills needed to press and hand finish panels.

Jack is certainly following in his father’s footsteps, his dad also served his apprenticeship with us after he left school before working his way up to production manager. Day to day Jack is receiving training in all aspects of our production process but he particularly enjoys welding and he hopes to focus on that in the future.
