Managing Director for Falck Nutec UK, Graham Gall, said of the developments: “There is no doubt in my mind that Teesside is one of the most highly-skilled bases for manufacturing, petrochemicals and engineering in the United Kingdom and we are delighted to be able to offer additional training services here.”
Teesside centre manager, Bill Whyman, added: “Our new facility at Teesside will allow us to deliver a wider range of specialised industrial courses, it houses a purpose-built workshop area, complete with split level rigging frames and rigging loft. In addition the main hall provides ample space for practical industrial training courses in basic forklift, mobile elevated work platforms, scaffolding, confined space and working at heights. To be able to deliver a whole suite of industry accredited courses and bespoke courses either at our centre or at customer premises is highly beneficial to a number of our existing and prospective new clients.”
