Acorn Aluminium invests for the future

Acorn Aluminium is celebrating the appointment of three new apprentices as part of plans for sustainable long-term growth. 

Connor Walker joins the company as part of the estimating team; Ben Morris joins the Acorn Aluminium design team and Zahra Suleman steps into an accounts role. 

“We’re here to secure contracts. Designing, manufacturing and installing curtain walling, windows and doors – that’s a by-product – we are delivering a contract.

That involves controlling costs through the design and the fabrication of the products that we make and we fit. It requires a vast number of specialisms and a range of expertise.  

We have a huge amount of experience but we need to make sure that we continue to develop for the future by investing in our next generation of leaders. 

With three new apprentices coming on board in the last six-months, we’re doing that.” 

Paul Stevens, Managing Director, Acorn Aluminium

“They’re working with leading contractors, architects and specifiers, developing a unique understanding of the built environment and laying the foundations for what we hope will be a long and rewarding career in the construction sector.”
