Coleg Cambria and JCB Transmissions

by Love Wrexham Magazine

Wrexham-based JCB Transmissions recently presented Coleg Cambria staff and learners with parts and equipment, including motors, gearboxes, transmissions, and also axles from excavators, loaders, and diggers.

Carl Roberts, Cambria’s Director for Curriculum – Engineering at the college’s Bersham Road site, thanked the company for the machinery. It will be used to train cohorts on the Motor Vehicle and Engineering programmes.

“We are very grateful for this kind donation. The equipment will be invaluable in allowing our learners to be hands-on and also work closely with a range of high-quality machinery,” he said.

“The company even brought us a complete JCB engine. It is fantastic and provides us with an alternative to studying more traditional car and motorcycle engines.”

Carl added, “JCB has long been a supporter of Coleg Cambria. Like us, they want to promote and help produce more skilled apprentices and engineers for the sector.

“A contribution such as this will play a huge role in us achieving that.” 

Supporting Local Schools and Colleges

The JCB Group employs more than 8,000 people at its factories in Staffordshire, Derby, and also Wrexham Industrial Estate.

JCB Transmissions Operations Director Craig Weeks was pleased to be able to help lay the foundations for learners and apprentices at Cambria.

He said, “JCB Transmissions supports local schools and colleges in a variety of ways. We are happy to assist Coleg Cambria by donating equipment that will help train the next generation of engineers and motor vehicle technicians.

“Among the items donated were gearboxes, axles and electrical motors. They can now be stripped down and rebuilt to help students get a broader understanding of mechanics and electrical engineering.”
