Trained for outdoor living

The Milwood Group is celebrating the successes of its new training academy as it reaches 50 graduates – just three months after opening.

Based at the firm’s distribution centre in Leicestershire, the £40,000 training academy, allows newly appointed trade partners and their installation teams to access in-depth product and installation training direct from the manufacturer.

The free service covers Milwood’s complete range of aluminium verandas, canopies, carports and glass rooms, and is designed to help customers install and sell verandas.

Mark Wood, managing director of the Milwood Group, said: “While we design our product range to be as simple as possible to install, for those who are new to the market it can of course be daunting. That’s where our training academy comes in and it’s fantastic to see it’s been such a resounding success.

“The new academy has become an integral part of our onboarding process for new trade partners and compulsory for customers to complete before they receive their first order. Not only does this ensure our high standards are maintained but installers are in the best possible position to confidently enter this growing market. Plus, it means installers can save both time and money on site thanks to experience with every Milwood system.”
