One of the biggest tool suppliers in the country donated over £1,000 worth of Piher tools to the City College’s Construction and Motor Vehicle departments.
Sphinx Industrial Supplies generous gift of the Piher Carpentry and Welding clamps will be eagerly received by the students who started this week.
Manufactured in Logrono, Northern Spain, the Piher range of clamping tools have been available in the UK for many years but it was in 2010 Sphinx Industrial Supplies were able to take the exclusive agency on from their base in Bayton Road Industrial Estate, Coventry.
Neil Long Sales Director at Sphinx Industrial Supplies said, “We are delighted to be donating our products to the College, not only are we supporting the students, but we are supporting the local community.”
“This partnership will allow the students to use high quality clamping tools from Piher, which will only improve their college experience. We believe that by imbedding the Piher brand within the local community and especially within City College Coventry we are helping to develop the Welders, Engineers, Carpenters, Joiners and tradesmen of the future whilst also providing a boost to the local economy.”
Steve Logan, Principal of City College Coventry said, “I am extremely grateful to Sphinx Industrial for supplying this high quality joinery equipment, which will directly benefit our students and assist City College Coventry in training the skilled workforce of the future.”
Piher UK is based in Coventry and with the support of the factory in Spain we are excited to be providing this range of Piher branded tools that will be utilised in City College Coventry.
