Former winner of The Tile Association’s ‘Trainee of the Year’ Award, Hannah Bamford, has been promoted from apprentice development chemist to lab manager. In her new position, Hannah will oversee the entire laboratory function, including management of the lab team, and controlling and managing formulations and EN certification.
Hannah completed a three-year Development Chemist Apprenticeship with Lancashire-based Tilemaster last summer, whilst also securing a distance learning/residential degree in Chemistry, sponsored by the firm. Thrilled to have been offered the new role, Hannah is looking forward to growing her career with Tilemaster.
“Since I started, I’ve seen and been a part of the incredible growth that’s been achieved by Tilemaster. I’m looking forward to leading the fantastic lab team, in order to continue to create and improve our outstanding products for our customers,” explained Hannah.
Tilemaster’s managing director, Mark Kelly, adds: “Hannah has been an important and influential member of the lab team over the past three years and we’re really pleased that she accepted the role. Hannah joined our lab team in July 2014, fresh from college on a Development Chemist apprenticeship. Now a fully qualified Development Chemist, with her hard work, commitment to customer service and her overall product knowledge – including the development of Super Flow 30, Hannah has proven herself to be a wonderful asset to Tilemaster and she was the perfect choice to be Lab Manager going forward.”
