Director, Mark Errington was delighted to take the Elected Mayor on a tour of the facilities and introduce her to some of the firm’s staff including their latest intake of apprentices.
“I started off as an apprentice myself when I left school and have worked my way to where I am now. We place a great deal of emphasis on our apprentices as they are our future. We’ve had a lot of support from North Tyneside Council and the Business Forum and we are all proud that we are making an impact on a global scale and flying the flag for our local area.”
