Donation of training machine set to help SETA

We recently partnered with the University of Manchester to donate over £1500 towards a training machine for a non-profitable training organisation.

The university regularly uses Stockport Engineering Training Association Ltd (SETA) and was therefore keen to contribute towards this beneficial equipment.

SETA provides specialist training and consultancy services nationally and globally with many large multi-national companies especially in the Apprenticeships, Industrial Safety, Supervisory and Skills Development areas.

The Industrial Control Trainer will provide delegates on a range of courses with a classroom based resource for practical investigation of automated control systems. The trainer will also prove valuable to SETA staff, helping to show contextualised links between Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

The collaborative donation with the University of Manchester comes as part of a longstanding relationship, which has seen us provide planned and reactive maintenance for the entire campus since 2001.

We aren’t shy about our dedication to turning around the skills shortage in construction and hope that, through gestures such as this we can equip people with the skills required to do great things in our industry.

Social houses in Wrexham set for spruce up

SOCIAL HOUSES IN WREXHAM SET FOR SPRUCE UP

Social housing tenants in Wrexham are set to benefit from more modern accommodation following the awarding of £500,000 worth of works to contractor Novus Property Solutions by Wrexham County Borough Council. The work will see Novus carry out internal re-decoration of void properties and a programme for external repairs and painting to the council’s stock over the next three years, with the potential for a further three-year extension. Novus’s work builds on the relationship the firm has established with Wrexham County Borough Council in previous years carrying out refurbishment and repair projects. Sam Frame, head of operations at Novus, said: “Novus has a strong presence in the North West and Wales and this contract will enable us to strengthen this by employing more people and continue to give back to the communities we operate in. “We’ve built a good understanding of how to deliver refurbishment projects to Wrexham Council’s high standards over the years and, together with experience working alongside other local authorities and housing associations, this will develop further. This contract will ensure social housing in Wrexham is fully prepared for future use.” Lee Roberts, Property Investment Lead at Wrexham County Borough Council, said: “Over the past few years we have invested heavily to improve our housing stock to provide our tenants with modern and affordable housing now and into the future. This contract will see that work continue and as we have worked with Novus in the past we look forward to continued good relations with both ourselves and our tenants.”
