Ercol: Apprentice Q&A

Ercol are a well established furniture manufacturer in the UK and have been producing fine hand crafted furniture since 1920.  From its birth, Ercol have always been focused on  creating well designed furniture, made in a good working environment by craftsmen who really took pride in their jobs.

FIESTA met up with recent Ercol apprentice Jordan Allsopp to ask him a few questions about his time at Ercol and the benefits he has seen in his apprenticeship.
