Industrial Tooling Corporation employs two more apprentices

Tamworth-based Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has employed two new apprentices.

The cutting tool manufacturer has a long tradition of employing engineering apprentices and it is delighted to welcome the arrival of Danny Cockbill and Blaine Hughes as the 2021 cohort.

The new additions to the team have already undergone academic engineering studies at a local college and their arrival at ITC will hopefully set the two teenagers on a fulfilling career in engineering.

During their four year apprenticeships, the two new apprentices will be exposed to a comprehensive practical and academic programme that will see the new starters learn their trade on state-of-the-art technology.

Prior to and throughout the pandemic, ITC has invested extensively in new CNC grinding machines and peripheral equipment to retain its position as a leading UK manufacturer of high-quality innovative cutting tool solutions. It is within this high-tech environment that Mr Cockbill and Mr Hughes will both gain valuable experience and academic skill sets that will set them on a path to fulfilling careers.

Commenting on the appointments, ITC director Georgia Graves said: “Over the last nine years we have recruited more than 10 apprentices that have become valued members of our continually growing team. Developing the engineers of tomorrow is the lifeblood of any manufacturing business and we are delighted to welcome our latest apprentices. Like our continued investment in technology and advancing our product offering, investing in the engineers of the future is a commitment that we take very seriously at ITC.”
