Spraytech, an award-winning body shop business, opened their doors to visitors this December with an open day to remember.
Local pupils, schools and their parents got a hands-on look at the latest accident repair products and workshop processes – from painting and prepping accident damaged vehicles, to plastic welding, computer resets and calculating the cost to repair a crashed car.
All the staff at Spraytech Enfield got involved with welcoming potential apprentices to what could be their first experience of the body shop world, and giving valuable careers advice.
Visitors also got ‘hands-on’ with live demonstrations and saw some fantastic super cars – including the Sheilas’ Wheels Pink Cadillac and a luxury Rolls-Royce.
To support the local employer’s ambitious future growth plans, the business is offering a significant number of apprenticeship places – guaranteed – each year at the body shop.
With an impressive turnout, and much interest in the company and the world of body shops, the event was a success. With a BBQ and drinks, along with the attendance of Enfield’s Mayor, Spraytech’s MD was rightfully excited in the run-up:
“Spraytech is an ambitious and growing business so we are proud to be holding the biggest event yet with AutoRaise. We are planning to bring 300 – 400 young adults to Spraytech on Saturday 9th December and have extended the invitation to young offenders, to show the opportunities for apprenticeships in our industry.
Many work providers will be present and LKQ are supporting us. It’s going to be a busy day; we have loads of demonstrations running on-site during the morning and afternoon sessions and our local boxing club, Edmonton Eagles, will be demonstrating some boxing skills.”
Harry Charles, Managing Director, Spraytech Group.
