Leyland Trucks showcases its plant to British and German apprentices

Leyland Trucks, one of the UK’s leading manufacturing companies, is proud to have been able to showcase its British production facilities in Leyland, Lancashire to 23 apprentices, including 12 on an exchange visit from Germany, and 11 British students from BAE Systems.

During their visit the group took part in an open Q&A session with Leyland design engineers.  This was followed by a 3D CAD demonstration on the use of various technologies employed in the design and development of a truck, as well as how the assembly processes and facilities are designed around it.  Then the group went on a guided tour of the factory to see up close how Leyland Trucks assembles the award winning range of DAF LF, CF and XF vehicles.

The German party, apprentices from MTU Aero Engines and Airbus, is touring top industrial sites in the North West while the British group is due to travel to Germany to visit an Audi plant and other factories in the Munich area. All are aged from 18 to 25.

Ivan Shearer, Leyland Trucks’ HR Director, commented: “We enjoyed hosting the visit and were glad to be able to demonstrate the advanced nature of our assembly facility at Leyland.  We are sure our visitors left with a positive impression of the skills and capabilities in daily operation here at Leyland Trucks and will benefit from the experience”.
