Elliotts and Ridgeons announce new Porotherm Training Centres

Square - Elliots 1Wienerberger’s Porotherm have announced the arrival of two new UK Porotherm Training Centres launched by our Porotherm System Distributors, Elliotts and Ridgeons. Located at Elliotts Millbank, Southampton and Ridgeons Station Rd Pampisford branches the centres are now open for business and will provide training sessions to teach participants how to build with Porotherm.

Porotherm is our clay block walling system that offers a superb range of benefits to the construction industry. It is becoming increasingly popular across the UK so the expansion of the training facilities available is important.

As Porotherm System Distributors, Elliotts and Ridgeons will be offering practical training and support in their regions from these new centres to demonstrate how the system works and to highlight the many benefits if offers.

Darren White, Director of Sales for Porotherm at Wienerberger, commented: “We are delighted with the launch of the new training centres. We work closely with our distributor partners to communicate the benefits of the system to tradesmen and to teach them to use it as efficiently and effectively as possible. We hope to see lots of people taking up the opportunity to participate in the training from these new facilities”.

The two new Porotherm Training Centres join seven other facilities across the UK.
