Polypipe, the plastic piping system manufacturer, has welcomed incumbent Chatham and Aylesford MP and parliamentary candidate, Tracey Crouch, for a visit to celebrate the appointment of four new apprentices.

Ms Crouch visited the factory to meet a group of young apprentices who were taken on by Polypipe Terrain in Aylesford following the closure of Aylesford Newsprint and subsequent redundancies.

New apprentices Luke Fewsdale, Ed Pullar and Joseph Mara have begun new roles as maintenance engineers in the company’s factory, carrying out hands-on mechanical and electrical maintenance of the tooling and general plant machinery. Joining them as a process engineer is Joe Cogger, whose role will focus on the design, operation, control, and optimisation of processes.

Sarah Trott, marketing manager at Polypipe Terrain, said: “We were saddened to hear of the redundancies made at Aylesford Newsprint, so it’s great that we’ve been able to find roles for these four talented young people within our apprenticeship scheme.

“Ms Crouch has been very keen to support the Aylesford Newsprint workers, and her visit gave us an ideal opportunity to introduce her to our young talent and demonstrate the market leading engineering that goes on at Terrain.”
