Celebrating our People at the British Engines Group Awards

Congratulations to our employees who were honoured at the British Engines Group Annual Awards 2023, acknowledging their commitment and dedication to their work and the company.

The awards celebrate the accomplishments of the group’s apprentices, alongside long-serving employees who have been a part of the British Engines Group for 25, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years.

Attended by employees, their family and managers, the awards are an opportunity to thank and recognise the milestones and achievements of long servicing employees and apprentices.

BBC presenter, Matt Bailey, hosted the evening starting the celebration with a flashback to 1998 when some of our employees started their careers.

A special acknowledgment goes to Dennis Knight, who marked an impressive 50 years at the British Engines Group. Starting as an apprentice at BEL Valves, and transferring to RHL, now Rotary Power in 1983, Dennis has contributed to various projects and played a vital role in health and safety initiatives. His dedication and communication skills have made him a valued team member.
