Annual PEME Apprentice Evening

The fourth annual PEME apprentice evening was recently attended by the PEME directors, management team, HR team and of course, all the PEME apprentices.

Managing Director, Ashley Maile, hosted the evening and introduced 11 new apprentice starters this year, covering mechanical, electrical and accounts trades. He stressed the importance of the apprenticeship scheme to the future of our business and provided the apprentices with an insight to the opportunities available to them within the business.

Michael Edwards, the PEME Safety Manager, provided a presentation focussing on specific risks in the workface relevant to young people and the evening presentations were closed by Craig Chaplow, owner and driver of the PEME sponsored CTR Racing, who gave an interesting insight into the similarity between the exceptional engineering required to keep a F1 sidecar race-tuned and that required by PEME engineers to keep client’s plants running reliably and safely. The picture shows apprentices Lewis Cosgrove and Aaron Parker trying the sidecar for size.

Anna Walker was recognised as this year’s PEME Apprentice of the Year. Jamie Barnes and Anna Walker were also awarded their advanced mechanical apprenticeship certificates having successfully completed their apprenticeships with PEME.
