Joseph Valente, who was last night crowned winner of the BBC's Apprentice 2015, has spared little time in expanding his new co-funded business with Lord Sugar; Impra Gas. The Peterborough based plumbing business took a 1,200 sq ft light industrial unit on the Eagle Business Park in Yaxley in the late summer after filming had already been concluded.

Valente, who established himself as a serious title contender in the early weeks of the competition has been operating his plumbing business in Peterborough since 2012. Impra-Gas specialise in the service, maintenance and installation of gas appliances. After proving the business models success Valente intends to expand his operations across the UK. Joseph pitched his plumbing business concept to Lord Sugar proposing the coupling of smart technologies and partner shipping with property mangement businesses.

The industrial unit taken by Impra-Gas is located towards the front of the popular Eagle Business Park in Yaxley which benefits from excellent access on to the A1(M).

It is always great to hear of local businesses and individuals suceeding and the £250,000 cash injection from Lord Sugar will be a huge boost to Joseph and Impra-Gas. Barker Storey Matthews would like to wish Joseph and Impra-Gas the best for the future.

Congratulations Joseph!
