Ex apprentices still going strong

While not many of the vehicles they worked on in the 70s are on the road today, CTS Vehicle Services ex apprentices Nigel Blackman and John Ashford are still going strong. So, on 5th September 2014, Guy Parsons joined the CTS team at Aylesford to present Nigel and John with champagne and certificates.

Nigel joined the workshop on a three year apprenticeship as a plant fitter and was subsequently promoted to Production Manager then Workshop Manager and is currently CTS Business Development Manager. John joined in 1976 as an apprentice lorry fitter and now works on the Kent Fire and Rescue fleet.

Accepting their awards, Nigel and John agreed that, after 39 and 38 years with the organisation, neither have any plans to retire anytime soon!
