Supported by Make UK, the UK’s manufacturing organisation, National Manufacturing Day encourages companies to give communities a behind-the-scenes look at how their factories work, giving them a chance to see the range of skilled jobs on offer and the opportunities for apprenticeships, reskilling and career development in manufacturing.
Wilke Reints, Managing Director of Yunex Traffic UK, said: “We are proud to support this national initiative and were delighted to welcome Councillor Mellor, Leader of BCP Council to our state-of-the-art factory, together with Deputy Leader Councillor Broadhead, Economic Development Officer Eddie Kirby and over 90 local school children.
“We were particularly pleased at how excited the schoolchildren were to see inside the 8,500 square metre factory and how interested they were in the different processes. We hope to have given them a glimpse into the world of manufacturing and an insight into the wide range of careers that are available. Hopefully we’ve planted some seeds and we’ll see some of them working in our business in the years to come!”
