Building the Skills of the Lancashire Trade Frames Team
Bury-based Lancashire Trade Frames are committed to building the highly skilled workforce today’s glazing industry needs. With an ever-increasing product range, training is always underway. A recent example is the company’s Anthony Loder, who has just completed a course in the fabrication of the Smart Aluminium Visoglide Plus patio door.
Aluminium became part of the Lancashire Trade Frames Trade offering in 2014, and interest in the company’s bifolding doors has grown markedly. With strong demand from the commercial sector and consumers loving the inherent strength of the material alongside its clean styling, the move to aluminium for sliding patio doors is the logical next step.
Training took place at Smart’s own site at Yatton in Somerset and included all aspects of fabrication, operation, glazing, transportation, maintenance, ventilation and safety. Lancashire Trade Frames Managing Director Mark Rowland commented, “There was a lot to take in, but we knew Anthony was the right man for the job. He’s quick to understand, and he’s great at getting others up to speed.”
Talking about the experience, fabricator Anthony said, “The course was intense and thorough, but I’ve enjoyed learning directly from the system’s developer. I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge with the rest of the team.” December was a good month for Anthony. As well as receiving his Visoglide Plus certification, Anthony was Lancashire Trade Frame’s employee of the month.
