A-Plant, Britain's leading plant, tool and equipment hire company, recognised some of the industry’s brightest rising stars at its annual Apprentice Awards.
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.
Opti-cal were in attendance with our very own Sam Gribbin who was nominated for an award at the annual ceremony. We are pleased to announce that Sam beat off the competition and took home the award for Apprentice of the Year in the Specialist Light Division. Sam is Opti-cal’s first apprentice and in his first 12 months has become an integral part of the Wakefield office.
“It’s a great achievement by Sam. We are a busy office and it’s very easy to get lost in the workload for a new starter, but Sam’s work rate, quality and attitude are always fantastic, and he is a very deserving winner. As a depot, we could not be prouder”.
David Bullock – Service Centre Manager
“I am very happy to have received this award. I would like to thank my manager David for all the guidance he has given me over the last year in making me successful in my job role.
I would also like to thank all my colleagues at Wakefield and all the Opti-cal depots for their help and assistance they have provided me when required”.
