Both Vini and Iurii have completed their apprenticeship training through the NZ Marine & Composites Training ITO and are a valued part of our fabrication team here at Armatec.  It was great to receive positive remarks from the officials at the event, feeding back that Iurii and Vini are an amazing credit to our company.  As with all of our team members we are proud to have them represent Armatec Environmental.  Well done guys!
