UK: Trainee air conditioning and refrigeration engineers at Eastleigh College are benefitting from £12,500 of new tools donated by Advanced Engineering.

The gift of Imperial Tools manifolds follows Advanced Engineering’s donation of £10,000 worth of Promax recovery machines to the Hampshire-based college last year.

“Our partners at the college have been doing some really great work training our next generation of air conditioning and refrigeration engineers, so it was very important to support their efforts in any way possible,” commented  Advanced Engineering sales manager Luke Levens.

“These brand-new units and tools give learners a great opportunity to experience our industry’s technology – first-hand – and that will enhance their prospects, as well as their employer’s, and our industry’s, too,” he added.
