GAP, the leading independent stockist and manufacturer of PVC-U building products, has launched its 2016 Apprenticeship programme to attract the next generation to its 600+ workforce.

Following 12 months of continual investment in its signature Rockdoor brand and window and roofline production facilities, the programme is the latest in a series of steps to future-proof the Lancashire-based business.

Charles Greensmith, GAP’s joint founder commented:

“We’re proud to have a wealth of talented and skilled individuals across our business, but are always looking for new and exciting ways to further increase our talent pool. In 2014-15 over 80,000 new Apprentices were recruited across the Northwest region alone; which shows the importance of developing skills among young people. We will be visiting Colleges in the coming weeks and months to attract the best local talent available and to offer the right candidates a ‘step in the right direction’ through an attractive career path.”

GAP’s nationwide network of trade counter Depots supplies windows, doors and roofline products to customers ranging from small local installers to national and regional house builders.
