Deputy Prime Minister Visits Prysmian's Eastleigh Factory

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg visited Prysmian’s factory in Bishopstoke this month to find out more about the company’s apprenticeship offering as well as receive the centenary memento commemorating 100 years of manufacture.

Prysmian has been manufacturing power and communications cable in the UK for 100 years with its first factory opening in 1914 in Southampton. A series of events for employees and their friends and family were organised at the plants across the country to mark this significant year.

Admirer of Prysmian

Nick Clegg who declares himself:  “A huge admirer of Prysmian” presented Paul Atkinson, CEO of Prysmian, with the centenary memento in front of an audience of Prysmian staff, apprentices and press. Paul took the opportunity to discuss the labour shortage facing manufacturers in the UK and explained:  “The shortage of skilled staff is one of the most significant threats to our future.”

Apprentices & Students

Prysmian has 14 apprentices employed across its four UK manufacturing sites, together with 24 students on industrial placement.  This represents a significant investment for the company which believes that it is a positive step and reinforces  the future of its UK manufacturing operation.

Prysmian  is supporting vocational qualifications and continues to invest in its apprenticeship and students placement  scheme.
