It was well worth Nick Mellor braving the “Beast from the East” recently to visit Target Lifts – LEIA’s newest member – and to meet the team. Danny Garaway and Tony Howell-Smith exude a passion for their company and see gaining LEIA membership as a step in its development. They value the recognition from membership and look forward to sharing the information and guidance produced by LEIA.
That commitment underlies Target’s quick adoption of their management systems to ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001 and the development of their bespoke CRM system.
As an ex-apprentice, Danny sees the importance of training as he explained “we are a very young company – we will have 5 engineers completing their Level 3 NVQs this year. It is crucial for us to train our young engineers into our way of doing things”. That bodes well for the future and underlines the value of LEIA’s commitment to trailblazer apprenticeships.
It was good to hear that commitment to training and development and we look forward to seeing that same passion from Target Lifts as members.
