James Jones & Sons, Timber Systems Division are celebrating another successful Product Training Course which took place in October, at their factory in Forres, Scotland.
The 1 ½ day intensive course has received excellent feedback from participants, who came from four of James Jones’ key distributors – National Hickman, David Smith, North Yorkshire Timber, and Robinson Manufacturing Ltd.
Gillian McMillan, Marketing Manager for James Jones & Sons, also took part:
“It was obvious that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience. So many of these training events are sitting in a room listening to somebody talking for hours on end, but the practical aspects and test at the end of this course got everyone interacting. I think we will all take a lot of knowledge away with us.”
James Jones incorporated a tour of the plant, and a ‘build a floor’ session into the course, which proved to be a successful training method, with positive test results at the end of the course.
Julie Malcolm, Technical Support Coordinator with James Jones, organised the training and was delighted with the outcome:
“We like to set everyone a little test at the end, to see who’s been listening, but also for a bit of fun. Overall the scores were very high, probably the best we’ve had over the years. Congratulations to Matt Wood of David Smith who took first prize and won a bottle of Benromach whisky and two whisky glasses!”
James Jones would like to thank everyone involved in the smooth running of the training course, particularly Lynford Chambers and Stephen Stewart for their hard work in setting up and presenting.
