Worldwide Engineering Polymer provider Nylacast continue to show investment in people with the opening of their new Engineering Training Academy.
People, Polymers and Passion, the 3 Ps of Nylacast. Nothing exemplifies this more than by taking a look around its new purpose built Engineering Training facilities, located at their manufacturing site in Leicester, UK. With common talks of a skills shortage in engineering, the investment into a training academy was the next progressive step for the company, building on the success of the Engineering Apprenticeship scheme it runs.
The new Nylacast Engineering Training Academy will not only be utilised by young students coming into engineering; another focus of the facility is the ability to upscale the skills and knowledge of the current workforce and reward the loyalty of long serving and dedicated employees with structured training programs and opportunities to further their knowledge and gain qualifications.
Mussa Mahomed, group ceo commented, “All of us at Nylacast are very excited and enthusiastic about the investment we have put into the Academy, there is a known skills shortage within Engineering which needs to be addressed. Not only does the Academy provide us with a competitive edge in industry but also allows us to focus our continuous investment in our most valued assets, our people and their dedication.”
Nylacast have also recently won the “Contribution to the Community Award” – the company was shortlisted as finalists at the 2014 Leicester Mercury Business Awards.
