Chatteris-based engineering company Stainless Metalcraft has seen one of their employees named as Apprentice of the Year at the SME National Business Awards.
Fourth-year apprentice Daniel Lynch won the coveted award at a special ceremony at Wembley Stadium, while the company - which manufactures equipment for some of the world’s most hazardous and dangerous environments - was also shortlisted in the Community Business of the Year category.
Austen Adams, divisional managing director of Avingtrans, said: “We are lucky to have won a number of awards over recent years but national awards are particularly pleasing as they recognise the industry-leading performance of our team.
“I’m especially pleased for Danny as he’s an enthusiastic and driven young man. He has taken advantage of every opportunity to gain experience during his apprenticeship and is now beginning to deliver real value to our business.”
Metalcraft recruits up to 10 apprentices each year. It celebrated the 100th anniversary of its apprenticeship scheme in 2016 and took on its 500th apprentice this year.
