Richard Drewitt, managing director of the Bournemouth-based firm, said: “We are keen to get behind as many young people as possible and encourage them to enter the construction industry. It’s great that we are working with two young and enthusiastic tradesmen and we hope to help them start successful careers.”

James commented: “I really enjoy the combination of college work and practical onsite training which the Drewitt Group offer.” 


The Drewitt Group, which was founded in 1877, combines Drewlec Electrical Services, Drewsons Building Maintenance and Drewsons Mechanical Services.
