Britcom are delighted to have supplied Grimsby Institute with a 2014 Euro 6 MAN TGX 26.480 SCR 6x2 Tractor Unit.
The unit, supplied by Britcom in conjunction with MAN Truck & Bus UK Ltd, will be used by the Automotive Engineering learners to further develop their knowledge and experience on the most modern of trucks on the UK’s roads.
The unit was driven over to Grimsby Institute by Dan Yeaman, Britcom’s Service Supervisor, along with Ian Gedney, UK Sales Representative for Britcom. (https://youtu.be/wHkqScYdDio)
On arrival the whole of the Automotive Engineering Department and members of the Senior Management Team of Grimsby Institute were there to welcome this great addition to their growing facility.
Ian explained “We were incredibly happy to get the opportunity to work with Matt and Grimsby Institute on this project, supplying the students with a truck using the latest technology, really is “Investing in the future”. The truck industry has an issue trying to get young people involved and choosing it as a career path, especially as HGV mechanics; seeing the class size and enthusiasm of the learners once the truck arrived is a huge positive step forward for the industry.
Dan spent some time with the HGV tutor going through the latest technology on the Euro 6 trucks before Ian handed over the keys to Matthew Holness, Curriculum Manager Automotive Engineering for Grimsby Institute.
Matt said “We are so pleased to be working in partnership with Britcom and to take delivery of the truck today. To have the latest technology is absolutely vital for the learners to progress and develop in to HGV technicians.”
Matt added “Our tutor has worked on HGV most of his life and his industry knowledge is invaluable. Britcom will be providing us with technical support in the future and this combined with our tutors' expertise will ensure our learners leave us at the highest level and industry ready”
Britcom and Grimsby Institute look forward to continuing the relationship and helping to invest in HGV technicians of the future.
