Local construction students visit Huws Gray

Published:  25 January, 2017

Huws Gray recently welcomed construction students from Coleg Meirion Dwyfor to its Timber Mill, Roofing Centre and Truss & Easi-Joist departments at its Llangefni site in Anglesey.

Armon Williams from Huws Gray said: “We’re delighted to continue our relationship with Coleg Meirion Dwyfor. It’s a pleasure to have the students here every year and we hope they enjoy the experience.”

As well as having the opportunity to experience the daily running of the busy Llangefni site, the students were also given an insight into several other carpentry elements such as machining, grading and the sourcing of timber.

Huws Gray has a genuine interest in adding value to the local community, demonstrated by the company taking the time to give students an opportunity they would otherwise not have the chance to experience.

Mr Williams said: “It’s essential for us to continue our relationship with local colleges, such as Coleg Meirion Dwyfor, in order to prepare our future skilled construction workers and customers. The opportunity that Huws Gray offers has been, and will continue to be, of great value to those who wish to pursue a vocation in construction.

Commenting on the recent visit, Meirion Edwards from Coleg Meirion Dwyfor, added: “We would like to thank Armon Williams and Huws Gray for the warm welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed it, the students learned about the process of designing and constructing roof trusses and had a tour of the depot and how timber is categorised and sourced. We look forward to working with Huws Gray again in the near future.”
