MP praises apprenticeship scheme at Alcester firm

Matthew Brown 23rd Nov, 2016

STRATFORD MP Nadhim Zahawi has praised Alcester manufacturing firm Smith Brothers and Webb after announcing it was looking to launch a new apprenticeship scheme.

In a visit to the firm, Mr Zahawi – former apprenticeship advisor to ex Prime Minster David Cameron – also heard the company is considering recruiting more engineers to join its installation, repair and maintenance teams.

The expansion comes as the company – which produce automated washing machines for vehicles under the Britannia brand – enjoys a growing order book in the UK from bus from bus and commercial fleet operators, as well as buoyant sales abroad.

Mr Zhawi said: “The opportunities that Smith Brothers & Webb have to offer school leavers in the local area are really impressive.

“It’s great to see innovative businesses offering valuable apprenticeship programmes like this in my constituency, and I look forward to young people seizing this chance to pursue a rewarding career in engineering.”
