Cardiff-based fabricator, Dudley’s Aluminium, has welcomed four new apprentices to its team.

Daniele Casiero-Malpas joined the team in October 2022, while Morgan Goodrich, Joshua Parton and Thomas Wyatt began their roles in the new year. All four are apprentice fabricators, helping the production team to prepare and assemble aluminium frames for doors, windows and curtain walling in the workshop.

Daniele said: “This apprenticeship is a brilliant way for me to get stuck into practical work, gain experience and learn valuable skills that will set me up for the future.”

Morgan said: “I wanted to earn and learn at the same time so an apprenticeship seemed like the natural choice for me after leaving school. I’m enjoying learning from the team and familiarising myself with the equipment and materials we use.”

Joshua said: “I’m happy to be part of the Dudley’s Aluminium team and to be treated as a fellow worker. The apprenticeship is a starting point for a good career in this industry and I have already learnt so much about specific tools used in aluminium fabrication.”

Thomas said: “I decided to pursue an apprenticeship with Dudley’s Aluminium as it was a chance to join an architectural aluminium business and learn from more experienced colleagues. I’m really enjoying my time here.”

The quartet are the latest apprentices to work with Dudley’s Aluminium. Izaak Lenney and Lewis Richards recently successfully completed their initial 15-month bespoke apprenticeships within the Dudley’s estimating team.

The fabricator is now supporting Izaak and Lewis with their ongoing professional development to help them progress further in the company. Izaak is studying a diploma in management course as a trainee site supervisor while Lewis is studying a foundation in quantity surveying course as a trainee estimator and surveyor.

Colin Shorney, managing director of Dudley’s Aluminium, said: “Welcoming Daniele, Morgan, Joshua and Thomas to the team through our bespoke apprenticeship scheme has been a fantastic way to start the year. They have made a great start with colleagues in our workshop, and we are looking forward to seeing them progress.
“We are proud to invest in the training and development of all of our employees and it’s our pleasure to support our former apprentices Izaak and Lewis to take the next step on their chosen paths within the company.”
