Bosch Rexroth is announcing its sponsorship of the Motion Control Industry Awards, which take place on Tuesday 12th April 2016, at the National Conference Centre near Birmingham. The engineering business has sponsored the Contribution to Skills & Training category. The award seeks to recognise organisations that demonstrate a consistent contribution to the delivery of professional training and skills development.
Speaking about the decision to sponsor the award, Alastair Johnstone, Managing Director of Bosch Rexroth UK, says: “With many experienced engineers heading into retirement, we need to do all we can to address the historic shortfall in new engineers.
“The pace of change we’re currently seeing, whether in improved functionality, interconnectivity or increased automation, requires that we have an engineering workforce able to fully exploit and adapt to the many technological advantages on offer.
“It is for this reason that Rexroth is investing in the development and promotion of training for young engineers, whether through this latest sponsorship, the installation of advanced training rigs at the Manufacturing Training Centre, or our own extensive in-house training and development programme.”
