Burner manufacturer and distributor EOGB Energy Products Ltd has appointed Harry Holmes (pictured right) to its technical team as a full-time apprentice, enrolling him onto a bespoke training programme to become a fully qualified combustion engineer.
Previously based in the production department, with responsibilities including building EOGB’s popular XSeries domestic oil burners, 25-year-old Harry showed a keen interest in engineering and was offered the chance to train up at EOGB by technical director, Martin Cooke.
Harry has since completed a domestic burner course at EOGB and will move on to complete his OFTEC oil and ACS gas qualifications before attending the company’s commercial burner course at Baltur in Italy to gain valuable hands-on experience. He has recently achieved his NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Performing Manufacturing Operations and will progress on to the Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Engineering Technical Support.
In his new role at EOGB, Harry’s main responsibility will be overseeing in-house R&D projects, including burner testing and problem-solving.
