Bender UK appoints new marketing apprentices
ULVERSTON firm Bender UK has appointed two new apprentices.
The firm, which supplies electrical safety equipment including LED surgical lights, hygienic touch screen theatre control panels and medical IT systems, has employed Liam Hall and Ruby Kelly as marketing apprentices.
The firm, based at the Low Mill Business Park, wants the apprentices help get the company’s products a wider audience.
Ruby recently completed her A-levels at Ulverston Sixth Form and Liam completed his A-levels at Barrow Sixth Form.
Liam, who worked part-time in retail, said his experiences interacting with customers will be invaluable for his new role.
He said he was looking forward to his new role and added: “I am excited to gain first-hand experience and knowledge from professionals and ultimately help the company to continue to be successful.”
Ruby, who has also worked in retail, said her A-levels had helped her be creative and her organisational skills will be a great asset as a marketing apprentice.
She added: “I am hardworking and able to prioritise tasks efficiently to meet deadlines to a high standard.”
Lisa Hudson, marketing manager at Bender UK, said: “We are working closely with Blackpool and The Fylde College to enhance Ruby and Liam’s knowledge, skills and experience needed to build a successful career in marketing.
“We look forward to observing their development and achievements in the future and we are delighted to have them on board.”
Meanwhile, Bender UK is supplying a new electric vehicle charge station for businesses.
It has introduced the Chargespot Berlin for commercial vehicles which can be mounted on streetlight columns and walls.
Chargespot Berlin is manufactured by Ebee, a Bender Group company based in Berlin.
Lee Slater, business manager at Bender UK in Ulverston, said: “Chargespot Berlin is a technology game-changer for Bender UK.
“It enables us to offer a complete solution for local authorities, health trusts and other enterprises requiring commercial electric vehicle charging solutions with full service support.”
Ms Hudson added: “The introduction of this new electric vehicle charge station is a natural fit for our business. We can tap into our existing in-house expertise to support the market launch and provide full technical and installation support.”
