IMH launches North East training centre to engineer apprentices’ future

13 October, 2014
Engineering company, Industrial and Marine Hydraulics Ltd. (IMH), has launched a training centre as it looks to inspire and hire young talent in the region. The company opened its in-house training scheme for hydraulic engineers at its headquarters in Middlesbrough with over 50 attendees earlier this month (October). Maria Dotsch, international trade advisor for UKTI, was the esteemed speaker at the event. Other high profile guests included Andy McDonald MP for Middlesbrough, representatives of Tees Valley Unlimited, Entrepreneurs’ Forum, Teesside University and more. IMH, which offers services in engineering, design and manufacturing, employs over 40 people, and is now hosting an advanced apprenticeship programme within the training centre. Passing on knowledge Managing director Nathanael Allison commented: “I believe that the gentle recovery we are now experiencing in the economy is significantly supported by small and medium-sized businesses; businesses just like us. At IMH our strengths come from our technical expertise, our world-class hydraulic knowledge. To ensure we continue our long-term sustainable growth, we have to invest in passing on that knowledge from our experienced engineers to the next and coming generations of young people.” Long-term commitment Allison added: “This training centre is a long-term commitment in nurturing engineers for the future, primarily for our internal staff, but also for the local economy by potentially delivering short basic hydraulic courses to other engineering businesses in the North East.” The scheme, which is moulding its apprentices into hydraulic engineers, provides bespoke training courses at stage one, and is headed by IMH owner, Paul Griffiths. Founded by Griffiths over 30 years ago, the firm won the Long-Term Contribution to Apprenticeships award by the UK National Skills Council in 2011, and is aiming to boost engineering excellence in the North East.
