Local joinery manufacturer shortlisted at Shropshire Business Awards

A local joinery manufacturer has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Shropshire Business Awards for its dedication to the employment of apprenticeship schemes.

Morris Joinery is one of four finalists shortlisted in the apprenticeships category, after fighting off tough competition from businesses across Shropshire.

Presented by the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce, the annual Shropshire Business Awards ceremony will be held on June 15th at Telford International Centre where over 50 businesses will compete in 14 categories.

Known for its quality and craftsmanship, Morris Joinery produces a variety of commercial and domestic work from external windows and doors to internal staircases and bespoke furniture. It firmly believes in nurturing young talent to develop and hone the skills the sector needs both now and in the future which is what drives its successful apprenticeship scheme.

In the last seven years the company has taken on six apprentices, with three currently gaining hands-on experience in its Bicton workshop. Morris Joinery takes its responsibility to training apprentices seriously and assigns each apprentice with a dedicated mentor to guide and help them learn the techniques they need.

Steve Granda, Joinery Manager at Morris Joinery, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted as a finalist at the Shropshire Business Awards for our dedication to apprenticeships. Our apprentices work extremely hard and have made a very positive impact on the company.

“Our apprenticeship scheme is integral to our business and we understand the importance of bringing fresh new talent into our workforce, whilst maintaining the traditional and quality standard of work we produce.”
