Mike Dale, Managing Director of Crown Highways told us:
“Becoming a member of CECA Midlands underlines our commitment to developing and improving infrastructure across the Midlands region.
“We have been instrumental in providing key civil engineering works to major projects across the midlands over 20 years now, and we feel as a company that we can contribute to achieving the goals CECA Midlands Chairman Nigel Drew has targeted for the industry across the region.
“Nigel has outlined a desire to bring younger people into the industry and see civil engineering as an appealing career path, as well as promoting collaboration and sharing best practices as a hallmark of what CECA Midlands is all about.
“With our commitment to apprenticeships – we have seven apprentices working across a number of trades – we believe we share the same vision and values for the industry as CECA does in that regard, as well as thinking similarly in all aspects of what Nigel and CECA are looking to achieve.”
