British Gypsum supports Our Boys in learning new plastering skills

British Gypsum supports our Armed Forces

The UK’s leading manufacturer of interior lining systems, British Gypsum, has pledged its support to our Armed Forces by providing training to soldiers serving in 39 Engineer Regiment, Royal Engineers.

In total, 14 Army tradesmen received the ‘train the trainer’ course material in East Leake, Leicestershire, ready to go on to train further soldiers at their barracks in Kinloss, Scotland before they deploy overseas to complete a major construction project in support of Defence.

Throughout the three day course, the tradesmen have been receiving instruction from experienced trainers at the manufacturer’s Training Academy in a ‘train the trainer’ course covering drylining techniques for systems featuring British Gypsum’s CasoLine MF ceiling and Gyproc plasterboard product ranges. 

Kevin Hall, Senior Technical Support Representative for the British Gypsum branch of the Saint-Gobain Training Academy said: “They’ve shown a remarkable aptitude for plastering and drylining skills, in both practical and theoretical scenarios. They’ve been a joy to teach, and I look forward to receiving feedback on the success of their projects.” 

Alastair Bell, Managing Director of British Gypsum said: “We are committed to offering training support to the Armed Forces so that fundamental skills may be passed on to their colleagues enabling them to build high performing spaces for accommodation and operational service. 

“We are delighted to be able to offer such training and support which builds the kind of organisational capability that will deliver value both now and in the future.”
