June 7th, 2023
Leading carton manufacturer, Falconer, has taken on their first apprentice. Locally-based Nathaniel Pendlebury recently began an 18-month lean manufacturing course at the firm.
A former student at Halifax College, Nathaniel joins Falconer with an ambition to become a fully qualified cut & crease operator. The appointment comes as the company looks to invest in the future and attract the younger generations to the print and packaging industry.
“By taking on a young apprentice, we are looking to find someone who can learn the Falconer way,” said Falconer’s operations director, Ben Townsend. “An individual who can develop not only into a great operator, but also someone who wants to develop a skillset which they can use to succeed in a career in packaging.
