Apprentice Engineer, Stephen Moore winner of LANTRA

Apprentice Engineer, Stephen Moore winner of LANTRA Landbased Engineer Learner of the Year award and Agri Machinery News Apprentice of the Year (Scotland)

We are delighted to announce that several of our Apprentices have been recognised for their achievements in Agricultural Engineering!

Hamilton Brothers and Ross of Lanark are proudly celebrating the success of several of our Apprentice Engineers who have sparkled at their 2016-2017 college and professional prize giving’s.

A fruitful awards season closed with a bang on Thursday 2nd March when Hamilton Brothers Landbased Engineering Apprentice, Stephen Moore (24) was awarded the prestigious Landbased Engineering Learner of the Year prize at the LANTRA Learner of the Year 2017 awards.

“I am delighted to have received such a fantastic award,” says Stephen. “I started work at Hamilton Brothers as a valeter and, after expressing an interest in engineering, management arranged for me to attend college. If it wasn’t for that opportunity then I would not be where I am today.”

This was the second award of the day for Stephen, who was presented with an Apprentice of the Year (Scotland) trophy by farm machinery website, Agri Machinery News in the morning alongside three of his Hamilton Ross Group colleagues, Andrew Falls and Graeme Ramsay of Hamilton Brothers and Michael Rolfe of Ross of Lanark. All four apprentices were also recognised for their achievements at the Oatridge and Barony College Prize Giving’s last year.

A special award was also presented to the company, and accepted by Hamilton Brothers General Manager Jim Steel, in recognition of the group’s dedication and long term commitment to the development of our apprentices. 

We are very proud of all our Hamilton Ross Group apprentices,” says Hamilton Brothers General Manager, Jim Steel, who was once a Hamilton Ross Group Apprentice himself! “The Group have worked closely with LANTRA and SRUC over the years to develop an excellent training programme and we would encourage anyone who is interested in apprenticeships to get in touch.

We currently have 12 apprentices working across our six Hamilton Ross Group depots in Bishopton, Tarbolton, Campbeltown, Lanark, Cupar and Perth. With over 80 years experience in the industry, the company takes great pride in its apprentice programme and looks forward to watching these award winning apprentices develop their craft.
