Morson apprentice Casey Wells was been honoured with two awards at the West Suffolk Celebration of Achievement evening, which showcases the best of local young engineering talent.

Casey, who has been working on Morson’s contract with Leonardo Helicopters at Wattisham Flying Station, was nominated for Engineering Apprentice of the Year but was unaware that he had also won another award, the College Apprentice of the Year award.

Casey was thrilled and surprised to be nominated. 

“I was very proud to be told that I’d be nominated for the first award and then ecstatic to be told I’d won! The other award was kept a secret until the moment they ready out the winner. When I heard my name I couldn’t believe it and I couldn’t stop smiling!”

Casey started working at Wattisham in 2016 and has worked on a wide variety of projects amongst many different teams, with a focus on the Apache Attack Helicopter.

“I cannot thank the people I work with enough for sharing their wealth and knowledge with me. I have also had great support from Morson’s HR department since being at Wattisham” he said.

Susan Watts, resource support manager for Morson at Wattisham Flying Station, said 

“I’m delighted to see Casey win not one but two awards. Apprenticeships are a core part of what we do at Morson and to have a double award-winning apprentice as part of the team is a fantastic testament to this."

Casey is currently undertaking his second of three years to attain an NVQ and a BTEC in Aeronautical Engineering.
