Mr Sale, of Stamford, added: “This is our first professional environment so we weren’t sure what to expect, but Safapac’s team is both highly supportive and collaborative.”

The pair have mapped out Safapac’s production process, showing where efficiencies could be made.

Managing director Barry Cornett said: “I’m sure they will make a valuable contribution to our business.” It is the third year Safapac has accepted summer interns.
