Opening the awards was Matthew Snelson of Grainger and Worrall, to talk about the benefits of the MCMT and the influence it’s having on companies throughout the region with apprentices employed throughout Shrewsbury, Telford, Bridgnorth and as far out as Stafford and Craven Arms.
With all the political uncertainty, Snelson declared the MCMT as ‘inspiring engineers for a changing world’ with apprentices prepared to travel from all areas of the region due to the ‘quality of training offered’.
This was highlighted as numerous apprentices took to the stage to discuss their time at the centre and why they opted for apprenticeships over university of heading straight into the working world.
The awards also gave Bauromat an opportunity to continue to spread the positive word of automation throughout the industry and highlight the benefits it can have for companies.
“Apprentices here today are the managers and buyers in 10, 15, 20 years time, if we can show them the benefits of automation now, they will carry it with them into their careers” said Bauromat Managing Director John D’Angelillo.
