A-Plant awards apprentices

A-Plant, the UK’s leading plant, tool and equipment rental company, recognised some of the industry’s brightest rising stars at its annual Apprentice Awards, last week.

The ceremony, which took place on Wednesday 7th November at JCB’s World Headquarters in Staffordshire, has been designed to celebrate the success of the company’s apprentices and highlight the many career progression opportunities available across the group.

During the event, several A-Plant apprentices and university undergraduates received awards in recognition of outstanding achievement.

A-Plant Chief Executive, Richard Thomas, said: “Apprentices are a vital part of A-Plant’s future, bringing fresh eyes to the workplace and creating a healthy and dynamic environment for the whole team.

“We’re extremely proud that our apprenticeship scheme has become much sought after and believe our annual awards ceremony highlights the company’s commitment to training and celebrating the next generation of future leaders.”

Last year A-Plant invested more than £2m in its apprenticeship programme and the company currently has over 150 apprentices in all areas from engineering and customer service to plant maintenance and driving.

All of this year’s 59 graduating apprentices were offered permanent employment with the company.
