Based in Birmingham, Webb’s has a network of training centers across the UK and also offers courses at customer premises or online. Training categories include health and safety, construction, plant operations, manual handling, working at heights, first aid, driving and many more.

Webb’s will be part of the Reconomy Group’s recycling division and will work alongside UK brands to deliver accredited training to customers and their staff. They will also support the Group’s initiatives to find ways of accessing employment for people from difficult-to-access backgrounds.

“We see great opportunities and have a deep understanding of the training needs of companies across all business sectors, already working with many Reconomy Group customers. Everyone at Webb’s is eager to add value and capabilities to the group’s proposal in 2022 and beyond.”

Mike Benton, Chief Operating Officer at Reconomy Group, said, “Training and development is of paramount importance to Reconomy Group and we recognize the skills challenges facing our core businesses.

“As the UK continues to rebuild after the pandemic, we believe Webb’s will be a great addition to the group and further enhance our offer to customers, while enabling us to accelerate our commitments under the Reconomy Social Value program. We extend a warm welcome to our new colleagues.
