An electrical and mechanical contracting firm has boosted its apprenticeship intake to a record-breaking 20 youngsters.

Ipswich-based DPL Group, which provides a range of services across the region, has taken on six new apprentices.

The company, owned and managed by Fran and Gary Dinsdale, has gone from strength to strength over the last 18 years, with mechanical and electrical projects secured at the Wine Rack and Easy Hotel in Ipswich.

The Dinsdales believe a large part of the firm’s success is down to its on-going commitment in providing the very best apprentice programmes for its employees.

It works in tight collaboration with local training providers to recruit up to eight new apprentices every year.

It was able to recruit six new apprentices in September this year due to “continual growth and expansion”, it said.
