Doncaster Council is supporting a local company in its search for new apprentices.

Denaby based Senior Architectural Systems Ltd is the UK’s largest privately owned fenestration systems company, supplying window, door and curtain walling systems to the construction industry throughout the UK.

Back in 2011, Senior took part in a ‘meet the buyer’ event organised by the council’s Business Doncaster team and Wates Construction. As a result, Senior won the contract to supply aluminium systems to Wates for the construction of the new £10m Campsmount Technology College.

Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster and Councillor Bob Johnson, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, recently visited Senior Architectural Systems.

Ros Jones said “I am delighted to see a local company expanding and taking on new apprentices. It is vital that we continue working closely with businesses like Senior, to make sure that local companies are part of the development work that is being undertaken by Doncaster Council and the private sector across the borough.”

Mark Wadsworth, Commercial Director at Senior Architectural Systems Ltd, said “It’s fantastic that the council’s ‘meet the buyer’ event enabled us to develop a close working relationship with Wates Construction, which has led to on-going business opportunities. As one of the major employers in the area, we already work closely with local colleges and academies to offer students work experience, so we are delighted to be taking on new apprentices, giving local youngsters a fantastic start in life.”
