Abi Foy: A Trailblazer in Apprenticeship Success

Abi Foy exemplifies the immense potential of our apprenticeship program at Sulzer. Her journey began in 2019 when she joined as an electromechanical apprentice at our Middlesbrough Service Centre. Throughout her Level 3 Mechatronics apprenticeship, Abi demonstrated exceptional dedication and drive. Not only did she complete her apprenticeship with flying colours, but she also achieved a Higher National Certificate (HNC) and a Higher National Diploma (HND) during her studies at Middlesbrough College.

Abi’s commitment didn’t go unnoticed as she received an outstanding achievement award from Middlesbrough College for her HND, which is a testament to her hard work.

In 2024, after successfully completing her apprenticeship, Abi was promoted to the role of Lean Practitioner. As part of a newly established team within Sulzer, Abi now contributes to implementing lean principles and effective management practices across our network of UK service centres.

Abi’s journey underscores the importance of providing the right support and development pathways for our apprentices. She proves that talent can flourish from within our organization, given the right opportunities.

In the photo, Abi stands alongside her mentor, Peter Thompson, who recently celebrated an impressive 50 years of continuous service at Sulzer. Abi’s success story serves as an inspiration to all, especially those considering engineering apprenticeships.
