Manufacturing Training Centre gains an apprenticeship patron
Multipix Imaging is becoming apprenticeship training centre patron for the recently Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre (AMTC), near Coventry in the UK.
Commenting on the news, Julie Busby, Multipix director, said: “Multipix Imaging is proud to be a patron of the AMTC. The facility features some of the most advanced manufacturing equipment in the world and that includes the machine vision equipment supplied by Multipix Imaging.
“Machine Vision is vital in many manufacturing disciplines today and it is essential that we train young engineers so they understand how to use this technology to create automated vision solutions. There is a lack of vision engineers in the UK today and this must be addressed if we are to secure a position in global manufacturing.
“Multipix Imaging is delighted that the AMTC has recognised this and we look forward to supporting the training and education of the apprentices here.”
Peter Hunt, co-founder, said: “We know first-hand the value of apprenticeships and the great foundation they offer for the individual as well as the employer. We are pleased to be offering three apprenticeship positions at Multipix this year, ranging from IT to digital marketing.
Paul Rowlett, managing director of the MTC’s Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre, added: “We are delighted to have Multipix Imaging on board as a patron. They will provide invaluable support and play a major role in helping to develop our next-generation engineers. This partnership presents a fantastic opportunity for our apprentices to benefit from their expert training using their latest machine vision equipment, enabling them to develop skills that are much-needed by industry.
“The support from our patrons is making a tangible difference to the skills and knowledge of those who train here, as well as to the wider UK manufacturing industry.”>
