July saw the first Engineering Technologies Group training Academy opened on the site of Iconic motorcycle brand Norton. The Academies are part of a major investment by Engineering Technologies Group, with help from strategic partners, including WNT (UK), that will address engineering skills faced by businesses, young people and the engineering sector as a whole.
Each academy will be equipped with world leading CNC machine tools and precision technology with the technical partners providing equipment and software to deliver advanced manufacturing cells. In addition to training new engineers, these academies will also be used as demonstration facilities and to assist SMEs with production issues.”
“We are pleased to be involved with this initiative as we have a long record of working with training and education providers to encourage the next generation of engineers,” says Adrian Fitts, WNT’s Business Development Manager. “With these Engineering Technology Group Academies we will be supplying tooling packages for each machine and supporting those through our Applications Engineer Steve Warner, who will coordinate our partnership with ETG and develop demonstration pieces and provide technical support.”
