Why become an apprentice at HL Plastics?

Who better to tell you than some of our existing apprentices? Watch the video now!

HL Plastics has a long history of apprenticeships and actively seeks young people to join its organisation every year, in a variety of departments from design to tooling to fabrication and many more. Former CEO Roger Hartshorn commenced his own career as an apprentice toolmaker at 16, and encouraged his own family to follow this example, citing the belief that nothing can replace the value of ‘on the job’ learning.

002-H.L Plastics-20-07-18A large number of former apprentices have stayed with HL Plastics and risen through the ranks to supervisor or manager level; we believe this is an ideal career path for many people and enables them to learn the culture and methods of the organisation, backed up by the theoretical knowledge they need to perform their respective roles.

The company works with local educational establishments to provide classroom-based learning alongside their day to day activities at HL Plastics, and time is allocated to study as required.
