Van Elle celebrates local business accolade

Awards Engineering Manufacturing Nottinghamshire

On Thursday 11th November, we were awarded the Excellence in Manufacturing & Engineering trophy during the annual Chad Business Awards.

Hayley Smith, Head of HR and Paul Dobson, Training Centre Manager (pictured), attended the award ceremony at Portland College, following a double shortlisting in this year’s awards which celebrate the best businesses in Mansfield and Ashfield.

Paul’s training centre team were shortlisted in the Team of the Year category, after they worked hard to overcome the challenges posed by Covid19 restrictions on training in the construction sector.

The Van Elle Construction Training Centre has bounced back since restrictions lifted and now successfully runs an average of 30 courses a month, helping construction companies from across the Midlands access the latest courses to keep them compliant and support career progression within the industry.

Van Elle faced strong competition from another local manufacturer in the Excellence in Manufacturing & Engineering category, but left triumphant on the night.
