Alliance to create new type of worker.
The aim of the tie-up between Cardiff-based Stratum and Wrexham recruitment firm gap personnel is to further improve the efficiency and productivity of manufacturing firms across Wales.
Gap and Stratum are working together to ensure manufacturers in a range of sectors - including automotive, life sciences, food & drink and aerospace - have access to a steady supply of skilled workers who can 'hit the ground running' when they join the production line.
Mark Roberts, gap personnel Under the terms of the alliance, manufacturers can call on skilled flexible workers supplied by gap when elements of their own permanent workforce are undergoing training and development led by Stratum.
Gap's own temporary workers will also benefit from Stratum's expertise in lean manufacturing and other areas of best practice.
