Winner of The Apprentice Joseph Valente has wasted no time in expanding his plumbing business after securing a £250,000 investment with Lord Sugar.

The Cardea resident has already secured a new industrial unit at the Eagle Business Park in Yaxley which he bought in the late summer after filming on the BBC One show had already concluded.

The news released yesterday (Monday, December 20) means staff at the 26-year-old’s Impra-Gas firm have two reasons to celebrate following their bosses’ triumph on Sunday night which secured him a 50/50 partnership with Lord Sugar.

Supervisor John Montgomery, who joined his co-workers to toast Joseph’s success, said: “We’re over the moon and well proud of him.

“I’ve been in the plumbing business for 23 years and when I came to work with him, I learnt a lot more. He’s very good at his job.

“He’s just good to work around, he’s very helpful, he cares about his workers. It’s not just about his business.”

The team at his company have not yet seen Joseph to celebrate following his win.
