Lincolnshire-based commercial design and fit specialist APSS has appointed six new staff to strengthen the team and add new skills to the business.
Sean Cuffley has returned to APSS in a new role as Commercial Manager. With 18 years’ experience of the industry and his existing knowledge of APSS, Sean will be mentoring newer staff and passing on his expertise. His appointment will help speed up internal processes and ensure projects are completed within budget.
Luke Krossoy has started as a Site Joiner in the company’s commitment to upskilling the workforce. While in a bid to combat the labour shortage in the construction industry, Finley Davis and Ben McGarragh are welcomed to APSS as joinery apprentices as part of its programme to develop the next generation of workers which is crucial to future-proofing the business.
Finley and Ben will be gaining hands on experience learning a unique trade whilst continuing to study at Lincoln College. Luke will be responsible for ensuring that projects are installed on site as efficiently as possible while meeting the highest quality standards.
Designer, Caitlin Maginess has joined the in-house design team, and brings with her a wealth of knowledge of building regulations for new builds, extensions and conversions. She will inject fresh ideas into the business and enable the team to take on additional and more complex work.
Project Manager Mark Barnes has more than 20 years’ experience overseeing construction and interior fit out projects. With his knowledge of on-site joinery, he will be an asset to the team ensuring that customer projects are completed as efficiently as possible and within the agreed timescales.
Managing Director Laurence Barrass said: “We’re committed to delivering the best possible service to our customers and supporting our team by adding new strengths and capabilities. These new appointments focus on key disciplines out on site and in the office, helping to support the management team.
“We have an impressive work culture within the business which is proven when staff return to us like Sean has recently. We are thrilled he has come back to the APSS family and with the combined skills we now have in the business, we will be able to provide an even better service to our customers.
“As an SME, our customers are everything to us. Having staff who are willing to go the extra mile for them is an important part of who we are as a company.”
