Food transportation and bulk cooking specialist BGL Rieber has employed Liam Harris as an apprentice.
Based at BGL HQ in Melksham, Harris will help manage “the expansion of our distributor-led products,” said MD Gareth Newton.
“Demand continues to be strong – we’ve just moved offices to provide more storage and work space to help us cope with orders. Investing in new staff and their development is vital to maintain a high standard of customer support.
“Whether it is for Thermoport food transport boxes, K-Pot electric chafers or Varithek front cooking self-ventilating induction units, every quote is different because we sell solutions, not just boxes.”
Harris commented: “I am delighted to have joined BGL Rieber. Apprenticeship is a great opportunity to build a career and this is an excellent company with a varied and interesting range of products.
“I am excited about the future and am looking forward to being a valued point of contact for our customers.”
Newton continued: “Liam is assisting the sales team and is also managing our new Twitter account with the assistance, in one case, of Pooh Bear.” This refers to a picture that Harris entered for World Photography Day 2015 showing a Pooh Bear teddy dining off the new Rieber Thermoport 21 insulated food transport tray.
“One thing is for sure, whatever Liam tweets; no-one is going to pooh-pooh what he says!” quipped Newton.
