TV's Mr Gadget sings KMF praises
Before presenting the prizes in the inaugural KMF Young Engineer of the Year awards at Stoke City's Britannia Stadium, Gadget Show presenter, Jason Bradbury, took a tour of the manufacturing facility of the precision sheet metal specialist.
Describing himself as a force of nature when it comes to all things techy Jason gets many requests for personal appearances, many of which he turns down.
However, when given the opportunity to present the KMF Young Engineer of the Year Awards he jumped at the chance, turning down offers from global electronics corporations to take on the role.
With an involvement with engineering from an early age, he was inspired by the work that KMF was doing to encourage young people to take an interest in engineering and engineering design.
It was also a happy coincidence that his local MP just happened to be Business Secretary Dr Vince Cable, who recently visited KMF himself, giving the apprentice training scheme a glowing recommendation.
Having read what Dr Cable had to say Jason just had to come along and see what KMF was all about.
The result was that he was 'absolutely blown away' with what he saw in the factory and what KMF is doing with the Young Engineer of the Year competition.
So much so that without hesitation he offered his services as a judge for KMF's next project, and wished everyone involved great success.
