LEADING global metals processing plant design and engineering company Siemens Metals Technologies is throwing its weight behind Sheffield’s new University Technical College.

The Sheffield Business Park-based company marked the start of construction of the college by announcing it is providing advice on teaching materials and helping to procure and integrate equipment for the college.

Siemens Metals Technologies’ director Jon Stewart said: “Well-motivated, adaptable and confident young people are the lifeblood of any organisation, and Siemens is no exception.

“Siemens has been one of the principal supporters of UTCs from the beginning, most notably as the main sponsor of the Black Country UTC.

“We want to continue and consolidate that relationship with the Sheffield UTC. We know from experience that the effort we put in today will be rewarded tomorrow in the quality of our staff.”
