KMF's commitment to training is one of the keys to its success and the company has invested over £1million in recent years developing two in-house training centres,
The intake of apprentices is growing, and graduates move on within the business, taking on greater responsibilities and fulfilling their real potential.
While apprenticeships often take the limelight, its overall investment in training ensures that all of its 340 employees are fully equipped to meet the demands of a modern manufacturing environment.
The commitment to training across the board caught the eye of the judges at the Sentinel Business Awards in Stoke on Trent.
Speaking after the presentation Gareth Higgins, KMF's Managing Director said: "Everyone within the business has contributed to this award through their hard work and desire for self-improvement. However, I have to single out Jenny Conlon and her team who manage all of the training activities within the business for their hard work and dedication."
"Training is a major commitment, but it is one that is fully justified by the results we see in terms of business performance and awards such as this are the icing on the cake."
