It all helps, according to Prestigious Plumbing and Gas

Subbie Prestigious Plumbing and Gas has been able to take on three apprentices through financial support from Spencer Henshaw.

Director Kruz Spyve says receiving financial support from Spencer Henshaw has allowed his small East Tamaki business of seven plumbers, including him, to take on three new apprentices.

“The support we get from Spencer Henshaw is really helpful. An apprenticeship can take up to four years so this helps towards costs associated with having apprentices on the payroll. It also helps pay for their tools and helps me when the boys are away on their block course. I pay them while they are away learning so this really helps them and me,” Kruz says.

Spencer Henshaw Managing Director Murray Stevenson says that as a business Spencer Henshaw will continue to support subbies like Prestigious Plumbing and Gas to continue to grow.

Spencer Henshaw will continue to provide opportunities for young people to learn skills that will enable them to secure permanent employment and we’ll continue to support our subbies to be able to do this,” Murray says.
