FLTA reveals finalists for Fork Lift Apprentice of the Year Award

February 01, 2012  

For the first time ever, the Fork Lift Truck Association has announced its shortlist for the Fork Lift Truck Apprentice of the Year title ahead of its annual black-tie Awards event… to coincide with National Apprentice Week (6 to 12 February 2012).

The FLTA made the unusual decision to reveal the names of the six Finalists, who are all 3rd year fork lift engineering apprentices, before its 18th Annual Awards for Excellence, to help encourage apprentices everywhere.  
FLTA Chairman Martyn Fletcher said: “For well over a decade, we have been working hard to bring bright, young engineers into our industry and our six Finalists this year are just that. During their training, each has achieved the high standards that our industry demands.”

The Apprentice of the Year Finalists for 2012 are:
Adam Bynon, Jungheinrich UK Ltd.
Alex Flowers, BJB Lift Trucks Ltd.
Anthony Hall, Rushlift UK Ltd.
Rob McKinnell, Barloworld Handling Ltd.
Daniel McKinnon, Global Material Handling Ltd.
Sam Wellstood, Barloworld Handling Ltd.
This year’s winner will be revealed on Saturday 18th February 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, in a glittering Olympic-themed event, billed by The Guardian as ‘the biggest event in the materials handling calendar’.

A certificate and a cheque for £500 will be presented to the winner by the event’s special guest presenter, gold medal Olympian Sally Gunnell OBE.
Joining Sally onstage to make the presentation will be Mike Jones, general manager of Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, sponsors of the Apprentice Award. He said: “We believe in investing for the future, not only in products that will make people’s lives easier, cleaner and safer… but also in the young people who will carry this industry forward.  As winners ourselves, we appreciate first-hand the thrill of winning an Award and the motivation it gives to those who have strived so hard to reach the final shortlist.  These young people – and the companies that employ them should be very proud…”
