IMG 6297 1

Ben works at AIS Ltd. (Advanced Insulation Services Ltd.) and came to BEMA for training commencing in September 2016. Ben had a great attitude to work and through continuous and consistent hard work Ben was the natural choice and became BEMA’s apprentice of the year. Ben said this was the first award he had ever won in his life. BEMA recommended Ben as an entry into the EEF awards and Ben consequently won the local, regional and then the National EEF Apprentice of the year.


The supporting evidence presented to the judges at the Manufacturers Top 100 Awards 2018 was the work that Ben produced whilst learning at BEMA. We are proud of Ben’s achievements and BEMA would like to congratulate Ben on winning the Manufacturers Top 100 award for the Young Pioneer 2018.
