A word from Emrys: What does it mean to win the CESA Apprentice of the Year Award?

Emrys Hughes of Plasma Clean won the coveted CESA Foodservice Equipment Industry Apprentice Award at last year’s conference.

"Winning the CESA apprentice of the year award was a huge honour, in the last year it has inspired me on a personal and work basis. It has given me the opportunity to build my confidence and open many new doors within our fantastic industry which has benefited my company greatly."

"Going to NAFEM in America (as part of the prize) was a great experience that I will never forget and I will certainly be looking to go again in the future."

"I would like to especially give thanks John and Pam Gilbert, Keith Warren and John Whitehouse and finally everyone else at CESA who made everything happen. I wish all the entries good luck on winning the CESA apprentice of the year award 2019!"
