JCB’s Dan Does the Double at Engineering Awards Ceremony

Talented JCB apprentice Daniel Biggs is the toast of the company after scooping two top awards in a national competition.

The young engineer and fourth year apprentice, who works for JCB Transmissions in Abenbury Way, beat stiff competition to scoop the Outstanding Performance by a Final Year Apprentice Award at the EEF Future Manufacturing Awards held in London.

Judges said Daniel “demonstrated an immense knowledge and passion for engineering, allowing him to perform at the very highest level” and that he was an “exceptional apprentice role model”.

Daniel, aged 21, of Wrexham, was also named Manufacturing Student of the Year at the same awards ceremony.

Judges of that award said Daniel;
“Demonstrated a tremendous level of professionalism and commitment to being an engineer, and the industry as a whole” and that his “absolute passion and dedication to engineering shone through.”

The award showcases the two major routes – an apprenticeship and a degree – available to people wishing to pursue engineering-based careers.

Daniel said: “To be named manufacturing student of the year and an outstanding apprentice is a real honour. I’ve learnt valuable skills that have set me on the path of an interesting and rewarding career and I would have no hesitation in urging other young people to pursue a career in manufacturing, either as an apprentice or university student.”

JCB Transmissions MD Robert Owen said: “We are extremely proud of everything that Daniel has achieved. He deserves the recognition for his hard work and he is a great example of how engineering can be a fantastically exciting and rewarding career.”
