Congratulations to Liam Laverty, Apprentice Plant Fitter at M Group Services Plant & Fleet Solutions (MGSPFS), who received a highly commended award at this year’s Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) Stars of the Future awards.
Liam was put forward for the Level Three Plant Technician of the Year, Midlands category by his college in recognition of his commitment to his studies. Liam has gone above and beyond to support fellow learners and worked hard throughout the year to meet every course objective.
Liam attends the National Construction College (NCC) in Kings Lynn where he is studying for his level three National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) to become a Plant Technician.
Paul Fairbrother, Head of Specialist Plant and Equipment at MGSPFS said: “Liam’s highly commended award is a fantastic achievement. Liam has been with us for four years, starting as a Plant Operative and progressing to Apprentice Plant Fitter. In that time, he’s become an integral part of the team.
“It’s the second year we’ve attended CPA Stars of the Future awards and we’re proud that Liam and Jack Coupland, now a qualified Plant Fitter at MGSPFS, both picked up awards. This is a recognition of the level of commitment our team show by continuing to learn and develop their skills and understanding.
“Well done Liam, very well deserved and keep up the great work.”
The awards recognise and reward outstanding apprentices and trainees who demonstrate commitment and ability which makes them stand out.
This year’s ceremony took place at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre near Coventry and was the 10th awards ceremony to be held. The CPA received a total of 72 nominations and the judges said that it was the most fiercely contested awards yet.
MGSPFS is proud of Liam’s achievement as the CPA is the leading trade association for the plant-hire sector in the UK with over 1,800 members who supply 85% of hired plant to the construction industry.
