Automotive Holdings Group Refrigerated Logistics (AHG RL) is developing the next generation of skilled workers within its heavy vehicle workshops located in depots across Australia in a bid to improve safety for all road users.
AHG RL aims to build a lasting legacy by inspiring future talent and developing capability.
"Our apprenticeship program seeks to engage young people via tailored technical education, training and work experience," AHG RL said in a statement.
"As part of development of apprentices, AHG RL have engaged with key partners MIGAS and Ai Group, who source and employ program participants, and TAFE, the Registered Training Provider who delivers the training to our heavy vehicle apprentices."
The latest AHG RL recruits have reportedly been deployed across the business' network at Direk (Kaylan Patniotis), Morningside (Zac Buerckner), Prestons (Isaac John & Luke Alexandrou) and Ormeau (Quinton Saward).
"Investing in the future is key and creating the opportunity for careers to grow and deliver superior safety outcomes is at the forefront of everything we do," said AHG RL.

Smart investments are imperative for subcontractors who operate commercial vehicles in construction for major transport organisations. Dean Carr, a veteran of the concrete sector, understood this when he recently purchased a new Western Star prime mover which has had an immediate positive impact on his business.
