Stainless Metalcraft, a manufacturer of performance-critical components for a range of industries based in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, received the Princess Royal Training Award at a ceremony held in London on November 23.

The award recognises the company’s dedication to training young people for careers in the engineering industry and the positive impact it has had on both the organisation and local people.

Christopher Duggan, managing director at Stainless Metalcraft, said: “We’re thrilled to have received this award, which recognises the investment and hard work the team has made to train the next generation of engineering talent.

“Our apprenticeship scheme, which has been running for over 100 years, is a key part of our commercial success but our focus on career development doesn’t stop there.
