NAW 2019 - Why apprentices are the lifeblood of our business

ArtherAndSons As a company that’s been taking on apprentices for over 50 years, we have seen first-hand the value and the benefits.

Founded by my grandfather in 1950, REL has always recognised the need to train and support tomorrow’s tradesmen. One of the first apprentices to work for my grandfather, Arthur Fenttiman, is still working for us today after joining us 40 years ago as a trainee electrician. Not only that, but his sons Ben and Bobby have since followed in his footsteps also joining REL as apprentices.
