The Pavestone Centre in Coleraine will be able to enhance training for its apprentice craft workers, thanks to moulds supplied by Wright Composites.
Pavestone Centre is a Northern Trust Health care facility which provides vocational and recreational rehabilitation to people with mental or physical health conditions and offers training in creative crafts, employment and performance skills.
The centre produce the popular F MacCool candle range, which features a product design which is inspired by shapes and shades of the Causeway Coast.
Wright Composites have been able to manufacture five candle “moulds” for the centre, which will allow craft workers to create candles in the Giants Causeway hexagonal stone design whilst gaining knowledge and understanding of manufacturing principles as they train.
Jeff McMullan, Business Improvement Manager of Wright Composites, said: “Rhoda and her team do really special and amazing work in this Coleraine facility.
“We are happy to be able to support the Pavestone Centre, we know that the new moulding equipment will help boost candle making productivity for the centre and we hope the enjoyment in learning for the craft workers will be enhanced”.
Pavestone Centre Manager, Rhoda Baxter, added: “It has been very good to make contact with Wright Composites Ltd.
“I literally turned up on their doorstep with an unusual request and they were able to manufacture custom made equipment for our needs and deliver to our doorstep.
“They took a great interest in our work.”
