About Tremorvah Industries
Tremorvah's purpose is to maximise employment and development
opportunities for people with a disability in a supported
environment in Cornwall
Tremorvah is a supported workshop and
comes under the umbrella of Cornwall Council. Currently over
70% of Tremorvah's staff have a recognised disability and fulfil
all support services to be found in any business; such as sales,
stores control, distribution, catering, customer service,
administration and accountancy.
Through this variety of work and training
Tremorvah can help people rediscover old skills, acquire new ones
and of course progress both within the workshop and into open
employment. It should also be recognised that opportunities are not
limited to those people with serious disabilities employed by
Tremorvah. At present the Community Development team, operating
from within the factory, co-ordinate more than 70 people working
with host organisations throughout the County. In addition to these
up to 30 disabled people a year use this facility to experience
work often after a serious injury or illness.
Over 70% of Tremorvah's earnings come from its own business
activities and an objective is to increase this percentage.
Tremorvah's aim is to be known for its supportive, caring and
friendly attitude, whilst providing competitive prices and an
This vibrant business has developed from a rehabilitation centre
founded some 70 years ago by Dr. William Rentoul at City Hospital
in Truro. While originally conceived to provide largely therapeutic
work, the benefits to be derived from providing gainful employment
for the disabled and less able became increasingly apparent.
The undertaking flourished and in 1985 the "Rentoul Works" moved
to its present address on the Threemilestone Industrial Estate
where it began operating under the name of Tremorvah
Today's Tremorvah still holds true to Dr. Rentoul's vision by
providing both real work and planned development opportunities for
its dedicated and enthusiastic staff, which may facilitate their
progression into open employment.
