A COMPANY manufacturing drainage products has recruited two apprentices.

Cawthorne-based Naylor Drainage, which employs a number of people from the Kirklees area, has taken on apprentice mechanical engineers Jacob Hobson, from Scholes, and James Winterbotham, of Penistone.

The mechanical engineering framework that Jacob and James will follow includes day release to Barnsley College – a mixture of on and off-the-job learning which ensures that they gain the best skills for Naylor’s business.

Naylor chief executive Edward Naylor said: “Apprenticeships ensure that we have the skills and qualifications for our business for the future and I am delighted to welcome Jacob and James to Naylor.”
