NOMINATIONS are in for the 2021 Generation Apprenticeship Employer of the Year award and they include a Mayo company.

The awards showcase the talent and energy of Ireland’s thriving apprenticeship employer sector. The 71 nominees represent more than 37,000 employees across three categories: micro companies, small and medium, and large enterprises.

Among the three companies nominated in the west region is Instrotec, in the Large Enterprise category.

Over the past two decades, the Mayo-based firm has been a leading provider of instrumentation and electrical services within the commercial and industrial sectors, both in Ireland and Europe.

Founded in 2000 by Donal and Donna Johnston, Instrotec has developed an impressive skills development programme and established a reputation in the growing pharmaceutical and micro processor manufacturing sectors as the foremost contractor in the provision of instrumentation and controls systems.

Said Danielle Dalton, HR coordinator at the firm: “Instrotec is committed to supporting Generation Apprenticeship during a global pandemic and beyond.”

Congratulating the nominees, Denise Rocks, West Skills Forum Manager, said: “Well done to all the nominees. Business development is a continuous process and in each of these companies we see the ongoing contribution of apprenticeship pathways in building value and nourishing skills.”
