A specialist blow moulding training facility at the RPC Promens Industrial factory in Rushden will help to bring forward the next generation of skilled technologists as well as providing a valuable insight for customers into the practicalities of the plastic container manufacturing process.
The new training centre has been established within a dedicated area of the factory and features a GDK blow moulding machine for practical work and demonstrations along with a separate training and lecture room.
The facility will enable workers throughout RPC's blow moulding operations to further improve their skills, as well as allowing new starters and apprentices to combine their work in the factory with both practical and theory learning in the training facility. Courses will also be made available to external parties and a programme of school visits will provide a valuable insight into career opportunities.
Courses, which will lead to nationally-recognised QCF qualifications, are run by two dedicated and highly-experienced trainers Gary Read and Andy Pattison.
In addition, a special Introduction to Extrusion Blow Moulding course will give customers the opportunity to learn more about the blow moulding process. The GDK machine can also be utilised for colour trials for new containers.
"As the market leader in blow moulding, we have an immense knowledge base and in-house expertise", says Carl Boniface, the site's Technical Development Manager.
"Maintaining and further developing these skills is essential and we believe we can best achieve this through the establishment of our own training programmes, which will combine the necessary theory and practical training with the real-life requirements of a busy manufacturing operation. And we are fortunate to be able to call on the enthusiasm and experience of Gary and Andy, who are fully committed to this important initiative."
