"We had taken on three engineers and wanted to put them all through the same training as others in the business," he said. "Without funding like the Low Carbon Skills Fund we wouldn't have been able to achieve this. "
"As a consequence, we've managed to up-skill our new starts to the level of our other engineers and grow our business."
