Congratulations Tom – CFA/CFJ Apprentice of the Year 2019

Bostik is proud to have once again sponsored the CFA/CFJ Flooring Apprentice of the Year competition and attended this year’s prize giving presentation at the FITA Training Centre in Loughborough.

Now in its seventh year, the competition is well established within the flooring industry and highlights the hard work and achievements of flooring apprentices across the UK.

This year’s winner was 20 year old Tom Havard of Dezire Flooring in Swansea. His prize package included a specialist flooring tool kit and clothing worth over £4,000 and £1,000 in cash. At the event, Shaun Wadsworth, CFA Training Manager welcomed the guests who included Tom’s father and employer, his college tutor and many of the competition’s sponsors, in addition to CFJ and CFA.

Tom’s specialist flooring tool kit included named workwear, training courses, tool bags, a range of hand and power tools, adhesives and sub floor preparation products, electronic measuring equipment and a range of accessories including personal protective equipment. The prize also included cheques to the value of £1000, an Amazon Echo and high street vouchers.

As a sponsor of the award, Bostik presented Jordan with a range of damp proof membranes, primers, smoothing compounds and adhesives, as well as a £250 Love2shop voucher.

Congratulations, Tom!
