As retail brands seek to innovate and differentiate, Hannaford’s skill in commercial joinery is increasingly being called upon.
Over the past 80 years, Hannaford has established a reputation as one of the foremost exponents of restorative and classical joinery. Its work includes the intricate skilled repair of paneling, mouldings, architraves, staircases and doors.
To maintain its position as leaders in joinery of distinction, Hannaford has made a commitment to invest in skills development, to secure the future of its business and is a proud advocate of Apprenticeships. Hannaford has its own Apprenticeship scheme, which is managed in partnership with Building Crafts College in London.
The term ‘Apprenticeship’ is very old, dating back to as early as 1300AD, having evolved from the Latin ‘Apprenditcius’, meaning to be indentured to a master craftsman in order to learn a skilled trade.
Centuries on, the ‘modus operandi’ of the Apprenticeship hasn’t changed, even if the way they are delivered and funded has. For over 80 years, Hannaford has delivered joinery of distinction and it looks forward to the next 80 thanks to the focus and investment it’s making on training up the next generation of master craftsmen.
According to a global skills study carried out by PwC, “Businesses need to get out of the mindset that new skills always equals new people. The most successful organisations will combine recruitment with internal mobility and the development of their own people to be more adaptable to its evolving strategy and business environment.”
