“Mechanical Apprentice of the Year”

Aidan Smith, our first apprentice here at Malton Plastics, was recently awarded as “Mechanical Apprentice of the Year” out of all other first year apprentices studying in mechanical based industries at Derwent Training, a training provider based in Malton. This reflects the hard work Aidan has been putting in both at Derwent Training and at Malton Plastics.

The training course requires Aidan to be at Derwent Training for 1 day a week, where he learns theory and skills which he puts into practice on site. Aidan however has gone above and beyond what he has been required to do and has learnt even more by willingly taking part in extra training throughout the year by other organisations.

Managing Director, Graeme Smith described Aidan as; “mature beyond his years” and went on to explain that his ability to think and do tasks without being asked shows how mature he is in comparison with the majority of young adults today.

We certainly wish continued success for Aidan in his studies and his career at Malton Plastics.
