Since joining the business, he has become an integral part of the team and has worked on some high-level projects within its Runcorn site, the company says.

“Tom is Sigmatex’s first Higher Level Apprentice and we’re very proud of his achievements to date," says Helen Symonds, HR Manager at Sigmatex. "Tom’s enthusiasm, maturity, commitment and overall hard work is a credit to our business.

Sigmatex, a manufacturer of carbon fibre textiles for composite applications, was also announced as the winner of the Sustainability award for its efforts in developing a recycled carbon fibre product which utilises its production waste stream.
