National Pipe Fitters of the Year 2015!

We entered two of our Employees, Chris Tyler and Steve Crowe in Pipe Center’s Pipe Fitting competition to compete for the title of National Pipe Fitters of the Year….AND THEY WON!

George Fisher and Adey sponsored the event which was held on 3rd September at Gloucester Rugby Club.

The Men had to create a P and a C out of different pipe materials, carbon steel, plastic and ABS with different joints, fusion welds and ABS joints, and clip it up on a board with the correct tolerances. They were timed and then their work was judged on presentation, team work and quality.

They won their Regional heat despite the fusion welder provided being faulty and went on to win the National Final with a record breaking time, beating the competition by 2 minutes 40!

They were also the only team to tidy up after themselves, shows that Alun’s instance of tidiness is drummed into them.

The Men have worked for us since age 16, starting as Alun’s apprentices and are not 28 & 27.

We are very proud of our employees and it is great to see the whole teams hard work paying off. Photo 03-09-2015 23 01 51
