Global OE and aftermarket brakes manufacturer, TMD Friction recently hosted the next generation of mechanical engineers at its UK-based factory to learn more about the processed behind the development of its braking solutions.
Students from North Lindsey College witnessed first-hand how TMD Friction’s annual €30 million investment is utilised to ensure its brands offer the some of the most innovative and reliable braking solutions on the market.
Scott Irwin, head of technical training at TMD Friction, said: “The industry is suffering as a whole from a skills shortage as more technicians are retiring compared to the number of new workers.
“To counteract this, TMD Friction is committed to protecting the future of the automotive market by inspiring and involving pupils from an early age to encourage their passion for the industry.
“Interacting with the next generation of mechanical engineers is fantastic for TMD Friction and it’s great to see the students getting a taste for the job.”
Later in the year, the Hartlepool facility will host more pupils from UK-based collages in a bid to encourage more young people to choose a career within the automotive sector.
