10 years of training at Portchester

29th September 2016

Steve Willis Training has been celebrating the 10th Anniversary of their Portchester Training Centre in Hampshire with a spectacular boiler cake. 

Martyn Bridges, Director of Marketing and Technical Support at Worcester-Bosch Group cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony ten years ago, and came back again for cake cutting duties. 

Having such a long-standing relationship with an important industry supplier such as Worcester ensures that the training centre can provide the latest equipment and technologies for its trainees. In turn, engineers and apprentices become more skilled at working on Worcester appliances. 

Managing Director Steve Willis values the collaboration: “We have been working with Worcester for over 20 years, and their support has always been second to none. This allows us to keep our customers up to date with technological advancements in boilers and related industries.” 

Martyn Bridges added: “As a very practical line of work, the heating and plumbing industry needs facilities like this to allow its engineers to benefit from hands-on training. Maintaining such a commitment to professional development for a decade is a great achievement and I’m sure plenty more plumbing and heating engineers will pass through the centre’s doors over the next decade and beyond.”
