Celebrating 6 Years – George Sheldon

This week we are celebrating our very own George Sheldon’s 6 year anniversary. Joining our Work Family here at Bartco UK/MVIS in 2015 as an Apprentice in Electrical Engineering, it was not long before George`s incredible work ethic and fast learning attributes came to light.

Helping prepare and build 145 units for one of our largest schemes recorded, George got stuck into his role from day one and proved himself to be an integral member of the team who, to this day, has proved himself time and time again.

Joining us on his 18th Birthday, George became one of the Workshop Team working towards his first-year Apprenticeship and has since gone on to achieve his Level 3 NVQ Extended Diploma and has now worked his way up to workshop technician.

George was nominated as Learning Unlimited`s Advanced Apprentice of the Year in 2018 and got to the final stage of the awards which is something that here at Bartco UK/MVIS we are incredibly proud of. Setting George on in 2015, Anne Ashman, our Commercial and Operations Director says “It has been a pleasure to be able to watch George grow in confidence and character over the past 6 years, he really is an asset to our team and is a joy to work with.”

George`s main roles at Bartco UK/MVIS are producing and refurbishing units, as well as preparing them to be delivered to our customers and more recently assisting the delivery team in deploying the units for Covid’s quick response needed. George`s knowledge and experience has advanced over his years with us, learning how our improved or new products work and operate has made him one of our most experienced members of staff and is often the one seen advising our younger staff including Jacob, our newest warehouse apprentice.

George has not only grown in-house but has had the chance to develop his career skills by undertaking additional training courses and achieving further qualifications such as his; Towing licence, Fork Truck licence, CSCS Highways England Passport, and his MEWP licence.

 Tim Hill, our Warehouse Supervisor added “George is a remarkable young lad with so much to offer, he is always on the ball and a breath of fresh air here in the warehouse with his organisation and time management which is key in such a fast-moving industry.”

George is an asset to our team here at Bartco UK/MVIS, and we couldn’t be prouder of the man he has become. We would like to say a massive thank you not only to George but to all involved in training, developing, and pushing George to persevere. As we always say, we’re not just a team, we’re a family here at Bartco UK/MVIS.
