AMHSA launches apprenticeship scheme at AGM

28 April 2015

The highlight of this year’s AGM was the launch of AMHSA’s apprenticeship programme in association with car manufacturer, Toyota. AMHSA members are invited to participate in the four-year scheme that will see apprentices spend the first two years learning a range of hands-on, high-tech engineering skills at the state-of-the-art Toyota Academy in Burnaston and the remaining two years building on this with industry-specific skills and knowledge at the premises of the AMHSA member.

Leading the way with the new scheme is AMHSA member, George Utz Ltd, which already has four apprentices enrolled. Commented Garry Archer, Head of Production for George Utz, “The scheme is very professional and develops the apprentices into highly skilled engineers. This is a great way for young people to launch their careers in the material handling industry.”

The Utz group are also hosting a tote workshop for AMHSA members at its facility in Alfreton, Derbyshire, including a tour of the recently extended production facilities. A panel of experts will cover a variety of topics including tote manufacturing methods and consequent cost differences, the successful design and use of totes in various handling systems and particular features of 'automation totes'.
