On Thursday 9 July, Worcester Bosch welcomed the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak MP, to its Worcester factory.
During his visit, Mr Sunak met with employees, including a number of apprentices, and toured the Worcester Bosch facilities. The Chancellor was also given an overview of the company’s innovative prototype hydrogen boiler.
Robin Walker MP commented on the visit on social media, tweeting; “Following his powerful #planforjobs announcement yesterday great to have Chancellor @RishiSunak in #Worcester to see @WorcesterBosch a major local employer and #apprenticeship champion.”
Martyn Bridges, Director of Technical Communication and Product Management at Worcester Bosch said: “It was fantastic that Mr Sunak was able to visit our plant, learn more about our hydrogen prototype boiler from our team and meet some of our apprentices.
“We have a strong history in supporting apprentices, both within our own company and those working for our loyal installers. We regularly welcome gas engineer apprentices to our training centre in Worcester to help them grow their knowledge and experience in the heating sector.
“The support the Chancellor has announced for young people is very welcomed by us, as not only will it bring more opportunities for them but also help our industry to continue making strides in closing the skills gap.”
