Six trainees with a Bingley firm have all passed their National Vocational Qualifications with flying colours.

The trainees - all in their early 20s - work for Primeur at Castlefield Mills, the UK's largest manufacturer and distributor of domestic doormats.

The successful trainees are Paul Cope, Martyn Drake, Mark McLafferty, Jon Pemberton, Phil Richardson and John Rymer. The NVQs were achieved by the trainees in warehouse and distribution work, and forklift truck driving.

Their NVQ training was delivered by the Bradford branch of General Physics (UK). The firm provides consulting, training, engineering and related technical services and is one of the biggest training suppliers contracted by Bradford TEC.

Primeur is also a major supplier of rugs, bathroom textiles and soft-furnishing accessories and supplies some of the biggest retailers in the country including Argos, Asda, B&Q, Homebase, John Lewis Partnership, Tesco and Woolworths.
