Rearo takes part in Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2017

Rearo recently welcomed Johann Lamont MSP for a behind the scenes tour as part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week.

Johann, an MSP for Glasgow, spent several hours at Rearo Glasgow meeting our apprentices and taking a tour of the showroom and manufacturing centre.

Graham Mercer, managing director of Rearo, and Robert Bennett, operations manager, discussed how the company supports apprentices and the role they will play in Rearo’s future.

Johann Lamont MSP said: “It was brilliant to meet Rearo’s apprentices, who are so clearly committed to learning.”

Graham Mercer said: “Rearo’s apprentices make up around 10 percent of our overall workforce, so they’re a critical part of our team.

“We’re investing in young apprentices to ensure we have a pipeline of skilled, qualified team members for the future.”

Rearo’s apprentices spend one day per week at college and the rest of the time honing their craft in our manufacturing centre in Glasgow, or in one of our showrooms.
