Russell’s Roofing School is a class act

Ideally located in the Midlands, Russell Roof Tiles has just opened its first ever Technical Training and Research Centre to help you install products quicker and easier.

If you work on pitched roofing it’s highly likely you’ve worked with Russell’s industry-leading products. Their roof tiles, fittings and ventilation ranges are some of the best in the business, with research and development a key part of their vision for investing in the future. By opening this facility and sharing their knowledge and manufacturing heritage, they are shoring up the skills needed to support the industry.

The new Technical Training and Research Centre gives bespoke, practical sessions for Russell’s roofing and accessories. If there is a particular area you want to focus on, that’s no problem – you can tailor your training to concentrate on the areas you need. Led by Russell’s experienced technical team you’ll get expert tuition on installing all their latest products, including both tiles and dry fix systems and thinner leading edge products.

Andrew Hayward, Managing Director of Russell Roof Tiles, commented: “The practical sessions are to make sure that all of our products can be installed correctly, quickly and efficiently. If you know how to do a job properly, doing it first time round to the manufacturers specific instructions has got to be better.

Having good training is better for everyone all round, with fewer call backs and complaints.
We hope to see lots of people taking up the opportunity to come and use the new training rooms.”

The centre is based at Russell’s plastics factory in Burton-on-Trent so it’s easily accessible from all parts of the country. They do say school is the best days of your life – so maybe now’s the time to find out!
