”We’re not just fixing toilets and radiators”

Service manager Daniel Lorente Vazquez has seen his share of young trainees – and he is noticing a shift. The present generations are prouder of their vocational training, part of a greener agenda, and able to appreciate a plumbing career much more than ever before.

The world has gone greener and at Bravida, one of Denmark’s largest technical companies within the installation and building industry, this has become part of everyday life.
Their parking lot is getting more and more electric and hybrid cars, the plates in their cafeteria have gotten smaller and the office headquarters are more energy efficient than ever before.
“The green conversion is visible everywhere. The builders we work with want eco-friendly materials, the Nordic Ecolabel on their buildings, and a greener profile. All of that rubs off on us, our routines and our trainees. The young plumbers are starting to feel proud about their field. They are noticing that they do so much more than just fixing toilets and radiators,” says Daniel Lorente Vazquez, Bravida service manager for the past year who is also a trained energy fitter and installer with plenty of experience with trainees.
