Industry views | 03 October 2016

False

A Wincanton spokesperson said:

"We welcome the government’s decision to formally sign the Hinkley Point contract. This is set to be major infrastructure project that will bring significant economic benefits to the South West.

As a leading supply chain provider to the construction sector, and a multi award-winning and Ofsted recognised training provider, we know how important such opportunities are for upskilling the next generation; boosting the UK’s construction sector and ensuring the country has the capacity to deliver on future infrastructure projects.

In particular, given the scale of the project, we would expect a high number of apprenticeships, graduate opportunities, driver recruitment and management development opportunities to stem from the project. This will aid businesses large and small across the South West to prosper for years to come.”
