One thought on “Prize-winning Apprentices

  1. Within ten years if they stayed with the likes of Ashmores, Power Gas and Whessoes, they people would experience a revolution in gas making, in which Teesside was leading the way.

    Gas was being made from light oil, naphtha at high pressure, rather than dirty old coal at atmospheric pressure.
