Britcom helps young learners with new truck for Grimsby Institute

Britcom Grimsby

Britcom has supplied Grimsby Institute with a Euro-6 tractor unit to enable its automotive engineers to develop their knowledge and experience of modern trucks.

The unit, supplied by Britcom in conjunction with MAN Truck & Bus UK, will be used by the Automotive Engineering learners to further develop their knowledge and experience of modern trucks on the UK’s roads, while training on the 2014 Euro 6 MAN TGX 26.480 6x2 will also be supported by Britcom.

Ian Gedney, UK sales representative for Britcom, explained “We were incredibly happy to get the opportunity to work with 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.

Matthew Holness, curriculum manager automotive engineering for Grimsby Institute, 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”
