Cheverell Apprentice Owen Thomson Wins Apprentice of the Year!

Cheverell lives and breathes beautiful, traditionally built cabinetry and joinery. It’s at the heart of all we do. To contribute to its endurance, we invest in apprenticeships that pave the way for bright futures in the kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms (KBB) industry, teaching essential skills to the next generation of craftsmen, in-house.

Not long ago, Owen Thomson completed his apprenticeship at Cheverell, becoming a qualified Cabinet Maker. He’s since become an established member of our highly talented team.

We’re therefore extremely proud to announce that Owen has just won Wiltshire College’s prestigious Apprentice of the Year Award, in the Carpentry and Joinery category. It gives us great pleasure to hear his wonderful news – congratulations!

By developing the skill sets of our staff, we ensure the legacy of bespoke work for years to come here at Cheverell. We’ll always be committed to delivering exceptional cabinetry and joinery, crafted in our very own workshop.

Our dedication to developing new talent through the apprenticeship scheme continues, with a new apprentice starting at Cheverell this week. Watch this space.

Staff investment and apprentice success

Investing in young people and developing their skills is an important part of our culture at Cheverell and allows us to maintain the highest level of skills in-house for the future.

We’re therefore delighted to announce that Owen Thomson has recently passed his apprenticeship, becoming a qualified Cabinet Maker and an established member of our team. Congratulations Owen!

Owen Thompson

Owen joined us two years ago after completing the first year of his three-year course at college. During the past two years, Owen has worked with our skilled in-house cabinet makers gaining valuable experience as well as completing the final two years of his Carpentry and Joinery college course.

Since completing his apprenticeship, Owen is using the skills he’s learnt over the previous two years to produce high-quality furniture for us.

Owen has followed in the footsteps of many other Cheverell apprentices over the past 30 years who have become successful and highly-skilled cabinet makers. We are proud to be investing in our staff and being part of the development of the best joiners in the industry.

We will continue to invest in our staff and look forward to supporting our next apprentice as they start their careers.

Christmas at Cheverell

As another year comes to a close, we reflect on what’s been another great year at Cheverell.

We’re delighted to see our craftsmanship continue to grace some of the most prestigious addresses and work alongside some of the leading interior designers and architects in the UK. We’re looking forward to bringing those relationships forward to 2020.

On Friday 20th December at 4 PM, we’ll be hanging up the tools and heading home for the Christmas break. We will reopen on Thursday 2nd January at 9 AM.
