After enjoying a hugely successful 50-year career at Hotchkiss Limited, Operations Director Chris Beadle has announced his retirement.

A long-term champion of the apprenticeship system, Chris’s progression from workshop apprentice through to company director perfectly encapsulates what a successful apprenticeship is all about and has allowed him to pass on his first-hand knowledge and experience to the next generation by assisting Hotchkiss Chairman George Humphreys in developing a Trailblazer apprenticeship initiative.

George Humphreys comments: “On behalf of everyone at Hotchkiss I would like to thank Chris for his hard work and dedication to the company and the ductwork industry as a whole. He has been instrumental in the development of our apprentice programme and his industry knowledge and insight will be sorely missed. We congratulate Chris on a fantastic career and wish him all the best for the future.”
