Jack the Apprentice

Pentagon Plastics Takes on First Toolroom Apprentice

The Pentagon Plastics Group are thrilled to announce that they have taken on their first apprentice. This is an exciting chapter in the Pentagon story as we continue to invest heavily in the future of our UK engineering and manufacturing facilities.

Jack joins Pentagon Plastics having already completed the first year of his three-year apprenticeship and brings with him fantastic enthusiasm to learn and a natural flair for engineering. He will work alongside Pentagon Plastic’s highly skilled tool makers who collectively deliver over 125 years of injection toolmaking experience.

Jack will also be spending time in the mould shop and post moulding divisions of the business to enable him to really enhance his understanding of the whole moulding process as he works through his apprenticeship.

Moulding the future

Paul Edwards, MD of the Pentagon Plastics Group says ‘’Jack is a great lad who has impressed all his new colleagues with his enthusiasm and capacity to learn. We not only want to support Jack’s time in college but also develop his skill set to enable him to be competent in all elements of toolmaking and final fitting. I think Jack will prove to be a big asset to the business over the years to come.‘’

The group has now taken on two apprentices across the tooling sites in the last 12 months (Pentagon Plastics Ltd and Phoenix Engineering Ltd). It is proving to be a breath of fresh air for our long-serving engineers who are enjoying the enthusiasm to learn a trade that they all hold so dear. Both apprentices benefit from the guidance of experienced and dedicated mentors within the business as well as the support and structured framework from their relevant educational bodies.

Jack, Toolroom Apprentice at Pentagon Plastics Ltd says ’’ Working for Pentagon Plastics has been a really enjoyable experience so far. I have already learned new things with the company and hope to continue learning through my time here.’’

The Pentagon Group are proud to be moulding the UK Engineers of the future!
