HR Manager, Transcontinental Advanced Coatings - Wrexham, North Wales

We have worked with GTS on several occasions and we have found their training to be excellent. Collectively, the companies offer us a one-stop-shop for both funded and commercial courses, ranging from NVQs to FLT, HazMat and Confined Space training. To date, we cannot fault their work.

Technician, Ardagh Group - Wrexham, North Wales

Out of the various training providers with which we have worked, Gatewen Training Services is the only company that is available outside normal working hours! Nothing is too much trouble for the team and their wide range of training courses reduces the need for us to work with multiple training companies, making the coordination process much easier.

Gatewen Training Services is always very responsive when dealing with our training requests. The company is currently managing all our MHE training at our Wrexham site. The team understands that we have to plan training around shift patterns and they always go the extra mile to accommodate our needs.
