Norcros Adhesives addresses industry need with new Skills Centre

Tile adhesive, grout and preparation products manufacturer Norcros Adhesives is aiming to meet tiling industry demand for training with the opening of its new ‘Skills Centre’.

Located in a redeveloped area of its factory complex at Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, the company’s new facility is set to become an important resource for companies in the tiling sector, as the company sets out to deliver an expanding range of tiling courses in state-of-the-art bespoke facilities for the benefit of customers throughout the industry.

Mandy Searle, technical services manager explains:

“It was always in our company’s plan, since our formation as an independent business 11 years ago, to create a training centre which we could develop for the benefit of the industry as a whole”

“Judging from the number of requests that we are receiving from customers, there is a strong demand from the industry for a training resource such as this.”

The Skills Centre comprises a lecture room and also a practical area, with the latter taking up approximately two-thirds of the space. It is a very flexible area in which the size and configuration of the tiling bays can be varied to accommodate up to 12 trainees. The nature of the training that is carried out puts the emphasis firmly on the practical aspects, with all trainees encouraged to improve their own tiling techniques.
