Leading apprentice wins 2023 ECA Edmundson Award

Adam Allen of Teesside-based electrical contracting business Geoffrey Robinson Ltd has been recognised as one of the country’s leading electrotechnical and engineering services apprentices, after winning the coveted 2023 ECA Edmundson Apprentice of the Year Award during a ceremony held at Trinity House in London.

Adam, who works for ECA member-firm Geoffrey Robinson Ltd, was trained by JTL. After overcoming fierce competition from two other finalists, Adam won prizes including £3,000 and an overseas study tour sponsored by industry manufacturer Zumtobel Lighting.

The two runners-up, who each won £1,500 and a state-of-the-art toolkit, were Brandon Crossland of J.A. Richardson Electrical Ltd and Henry Stephens of Darke & Taylor Ltd.

Apprentice of the Year Adam Allen of Geoffrey Robinson Ltd said: “I feel delighted and privileged to be recognised as ECA Edmundson Apprentice of the Year, and I am honoured to represent Geoffrey Robinson Ltd. I would especially like to thank my employers, who have been fantastic mentors and provided me with the best start to my career I could have wished for.”
