It was a pleasure to be invited to open the new Technical Training and Research Centre for Russell Roof Tiles in Wetmore Lane last week. The new 3,500 square foot training facilities will provide practical training as well as classroom sessions to roof tilers and apprentices.
Having toured the superb new facilities for myself with Managing Director, Andrew Hayward, he tasked me with the job to give roof tiling a go myself. While it was a great experience I shall leave roof tiling to the professionals and those under going the training at the centre in the future.
It is always encouraging to see businesses investing in Burton and Russell Roof Tiles has now been here for over 25 years, employing local people and boosting the local economy. Seeing the company which has increased its capacity by 30% in recent years and continues to invest millions into the site adds more positive news to Burton’s current employment and economic success.
