Hartlepool College Visit

10 students, who are currently studying their BTEC Level 1 in Fabrication and Welding at Hartlepool College, visited Katmex last month

During the visit, students saw staff carrying out their daily work as well as being given an explanation on how the business operated and which machinery was used.

The tour was led by Managing Director David Mitchell, who said: “It is great to see the next generation of welders and fabricators coming to see what we are all about.

“They were all very keen and interested in what goes on at the plant and we thoroughly enjoyed having them here.”

Hartlepool College tutor Cliff Down, said the experience and opportunity to get an insight into a real working environment would be invaluable for the students.

Cliff said: “We have great facilities in the workshops at Hartlepool College and they are working hands-on a lot of the time.

“But nothing beats the sounds and smells of a working plant. It makes me want to get back on the tools myself.

“Hopefully the students who visited Katmex will now have a better understanding of what goes on in a business of this nature, and that will help them as they continue to progress through their course.

“I’d like to thank David and the team at Katmex for being so welcoming, and we look forward to working with them in the future”.
