Bradford’s Deputy Lord Mayor Coun Abid Hussain will attend a reception to congratulate three young people  who have just returned from representing the UK at the WorldSkills finals in Brazil.


Chris Renwick, Patrick Devanney and Dominic Trees, who all work for CMB Engineering in Shipley, were selected to represent the UK as part of the Manufacturing Team Challenge at the competition. The competition is dubbed as the world’s largest professional education competition and takes place every two years, with competitions from all over the world.

The team came 5th in their group and all won Medallions of Excellence, which are presented to competitors who attain over 500 points in the competition, demonstrating world class standards in their chosen skill.

Deputy Lord Mayor, Coun Abid Hussain, said: “The achievements of these three lads are to be commended, so I was delighted to be invited to this celebration event. They should be very proud of what they have accomplished and I wish them all the very best for the future.”

Speaking about their success, Andrew Truelove, General Manager at CMB Engineering said: “We are extremely proud of the boys’ efforts in what is a highly pressurised environment. The fact that they were able to replicate the high standards of work that they produce for us on a daily basis on the global stage, is testament to their strong characters, exceptional workmanship and the high level of expert support and training they
receive here at CMB. They have done the company and the city of Bradford proud.”
