Paslode believes that it is important to support the apprentice tradesmen and women. Especially the ones who demonstrate outstanding trade skills, tenacity and a willingness to learn.
It is critical that we support Victoria’s apprentices as we rely on them to continue to drive the strong residential building activity in the generations to come.I
Master Builders Association of Victoria President Melanie Fasham says it best when she stated, “One of the best investments Victoria can make is in the training and skills of young people in the building and construction industry. When we prepare them, we prepare Victoria for the generations ahead and the communities that will rely on them. Tonight’s group of award recipients reflect the continuing importance of apprenticeships as the critical and enduring pathway for skills in the Victorian building industry.”
When the opportunity came up to sponsor the Master Builders of Victoria Apprentice of the Year awards, we jumped at it. Paslode is very proud to support Victoria’s best young apprentices. We contributed to the awards evening by supplying a Paslode Impulse framing nailer or angled bradder to the category winners.
