Jones Bros join celebration of North Wales construction companies21st Jul 2014

Jones Bros has been invited to take part in an event celebrating the achievements of North Wales’ construction companies over the last five decades.

The Ruthin-based civil engineering firm’s trainers played a major role in the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) held at Eirias Park on Friday, July 18.

The event brought together North Wales’ biggest construction companies to look back at the region’s achievements and most important projects over the last 50 years.

Jones Bros’ health, safety, environment quality and training manager Dave Gibson and recently retired training manager Ken Jones also spoke at the event about the company’s success.

Dave Gibson said: “In a lot of ways, we have a fantastic working partnership with the CITB, and we’re very happy to join in its 50th anniversary celebrations.

“Jones Bros has a lot to be proud of, and the event promises to be a great opportunity to celebrate successes stories from the construction industry in North Wales.”

The event also featured a display board charting the major construction projects from across the region over the last five decades, including Jones Bros’ work to upgrade the A55 at Llanddulas, near Colwyn Bay, surfacing work at Anglesey Racetrack, and sea defences in Tywyn, Gwynedd.

The CITB recently visited Jones Bros’ dedicated training centre at the Horseshoe Pass to record part of a film on successful Welsh construction companies that will be played at the event.

Jones Bros runs CITB accredited courses and apprenticeship programmes from its dedicated training centre in Ruthin.
