PCH Manufacturing celebrates its brightest stars

Reece joined PCH Manufacturing in 2017 to study his NVQ2 in Carpentry and is currently working towards his NVQ3 after a successful first year with us.

Working alongside carpenters in the joinery workshop, Reece has excelled at learning the crafts of the trade. Throughout his apprenticeship, Reece has completed a wide range of projects, from the production of pigeonholes and key cabinets for our commercial clients, to hedgehog homes which help give back to the community.

Trusted to take initiative and responsibility, Reece is also highly capable of refurbishing heritage windows; a complex and often detailed job requiring complete concentration and keen attention to detail. Reece has also always been willing to assist with other parts of the service, including installation, providing added value to the team.

Not only has Reece produced high-quality products for our clients, he’s also gone above and beyond to help the company with workplace initiatives and attended training which covers other areas of the business. Reece took part in training to be able to fit the PCH Manufacturing workforce with the correct respiratory protective equipment (RPE), helping to protect his colleagues from harmful dust and vapours in the various manufacturing workshops, thereby keeping them safe when working.

Reece has also shown excellent commitment to his role. Our joinery workshop is in a remote location with no nearby public transport routes. Reece always made every effort to get to us while he was still learning to drive, and often had to join his mum on the school run to make sure he attended. This meant Reece was often the last one leaving the workshop in the evenings – however, these long days never affected his positive attitude.

Reece is always eager to learn with excellent attendance. He is a real asset to the joinery workshop at PCH Manufacturing, and his work and commitment to learning and producing outstanding products has been invaluable. Reece goes above and beyond, shown by his commitment to making the workplace better while also learning the trade.
