Wilson Vale secures EEF contract

Wilson Vale has secured a one-year contract worth £235,000 to provide catering services for EEF, the manufacturers' organisation, across two sites in Aston, Birmingham.

The first part of the contract started in September and sees Wilson Vale cater for around 150 apprentices and 100 training delegates and staff each day at the company's Technology Training Centre at Nexus Point.

Services include breakfast, lunch and a grab & go service for the apprentices, as well as a restaurant service for training delegates.

The 50,000 sq ft facility provides more than 50 technical training courses on the use of 120 machines and equipment commonly found in manufacturing and engineering environments.

Andrew Wilson, co-founder of Wilson Vale, said: "Now that the new building has opened, we have an opportunity to support the conferencing side of the operation and we look forward to supporting our new client's growth within this sector throughout 2017. We are delighted that EEF has placed its trust and faith in us to develop catering at this important hub of nurturing, training and development of young engineers."

Neil Withey, director of training at EEF, added: "We have invested significantly in creating world-class training facilities in the heartland of UK manufacturing. It is important that these high standards are maintained in every aspect of what we do, including the catering enjoyed by our staff, delegates and apprentices.

"An army marches on its stomach and the same is true of the highly skilled and motivated engineers and manufacturers of the future we are training here."
