Kris Pilmer, second year apprentice at our Newcastle branch, has already shown his skill and ability in a number of competitions and training awards over the past two years. However, receiving the National PDA Apprentice of the Year award at Plaisterer’s Hall in London was certainly a proud moment not only for Kris but also Bagnalls. Kris was supported on the day by a number of colleagues and his tutors from New College Durham.
David Sunderland, Bagnalls Group Technical & Training Manager, added “Kris has shown his commitment to the industry throughout his apprenticeship, including the work undertaken at our Training Academy in Doncaster, at college in Durham and on site for Bagnalls. We have high hopes for Kris in the future as he progresses in his painting career.”
The PDA Trophy Awards is an annual event which exhibits the best in class in the painting and decorating industry. Bagnalls are proud to have won the Apprentice category.
