He is extremely hard working and always gives 100% at everything he does. Ryan has been a great example of how successful apprenticeships can be. Since starting with us at just 16 years old on our apprenticeship scheme to five years later and being a machine shop manager is a fantastic achievement. I am excited to see Ryan progress further within the business as we have high hopes for his future”

Mr. David Bowers, Bowers Electrical
Lifetime Contribution (Sponsored by the AEMT)
Members of the AEMT owe the Bowers family a great deal of gratitude for their lifetime services to the AEMT and the industry. The name has been at the forefront of the industrial electrical apparatus industry in the UK over four generations.
David Bowers has been going to AEMT meetings since its inception in 1945, when he was just 7 years old, attending many conferences with his parents. It is probably no surprise that David joined the AEMT council in 1976, and rapidly became Northern Area Chairman in 1978, and then became President of the AEMT in 1982. After that he was a very active Treasurer for nine years between 1988 and 2001, and is still on the AEMT Audit committee.
In 2004, after a record breaking 25 years on the AEMT council, he was made an Honorary member of the AEMT in recognition of his services to the industry.
He championed for British sign language to be recognised as an equal to English for engineering apprenticeships. Deaf and dyslexic, Max Buxton, has flourished as an apprentice under David Bowers’s wing.
