McAlpine Plumbing Products joins forces with BPEC to support SkillPLUMB

McAlpine This year’s SkillPLUMB competitors are set to benefit greatly following a new partnership between McAlpine Plumbing Products and BPEC.

Under a new sponsorship arrangement, competitors will receive a selection of essential plumbing fittings as prizes from the market-leading, family-run firm that employs over 750 people and manufactures over 4500 individual products.

Registration for SkillPLUMB, along with all other WorldSkills UK events, opens on 01 March and closes on 07 April. The event sees talented young plumbers test their expertise on a series of challenging practical tests in a bid to be named the SkillPLUMB UK champion.

Between March and July, a number of regional events are held across the UK. Those who score most highly will progress to a grand final held in November at the prestigious Skills Show, the UK’s largest skills and careers show with over 80,000 visitors.

McAlpine joins a host of other industry organisations that already support SkillPLUMB, including the Copper Initiative, Grundfos Pumps, Worcester Bosch and the APHC.

“We’re extremely happy to embark on this new relationship with McAlpine Plumbing Products,” said Neil Collishaw of BPEC. “Not only will their donations be a great value to our young competitors, but we’re also looking forward to working together on more initiatives to support the plumbing industry.”
