Paper mill scoops award

Wales' largest paper recycling mill has scooped Employer of the Year in the prestigious National Training and Modern Apprenticeship Awards- Wales 2005.

Deeside-based UPM Shotton was awarded the accolade at Cardiff City Hall in recognition of its training and development programme.

UPM Shotton Systems Engineer John Frodsham said: "Our employees learn about the importance of the environment and the impact the mill has. We divert 1.6 million tonnes of recovered paper away from landfill and we also save enough water in our processes equal to that drunk by every person in Wales over a six month period."

The company works with local authorities throughout the UK to recycle newspapers and junk mail and was also nominated for an individual apprentices achievement award.

Frodsham added: "We take on four apprentices each year and have a four year scheme that enables the employee to progress through the company and to make personal achievements by learning how a business functions."
