Since the completion of the project with Combined Composite Technologies (better known as Hexion CCT), Direct Tool Company (DTC) says it has won further contracts for composite manufacturing and engineering firms.
Hexion CCT explains that it chose DTC for its superior understanding of requirements and impressive industry knowledge. In brief, the installation commissioned by DTC involved fitting out a 10 person training facility which included the fitting of cupboards, air and dust extraction system and downdraft benches.
According to Hexion CCT, the new training facility has empowered it to upskill its existing staff and serve as a vital training centre for the workforce across the composite industry. The bespoke dust extraction systems allow trainees to develop their skills in a safe, clean and comfortable composite production training facility.
“I’m delighted with the manner of which this project was carried out, we kept within budget, delivered on time and have another happy customer. The downdraft benches, air and dust extraction systems will safely allow for the practice of several major composite production processes. We’re thrilled to have worked with Hexion CCT on this project,” said Tim Wakeford, Managing Director of Direct Tool Company.
