Beamex Partners with CATCH Apprenticeships to Empower Industrial Skills Development

Beamex, a leading provider of calibration equipment and solutions, is delighted to announce its partnership with CATCH Apprenticeships in the UK, a renowned organisation dedicated to skills, apprenticeships, and competency development within the industrial sector. As part of this collaboration, Beamex will proudly support CATCH by loaning state-of-the-art calibration equipment to enhance the training experience for apprentices.

CATCH, which was established in 1999 to bolster the £6 billion Humber chemical and process sectors, has since evolved into a beacon of excellence in industrial training and development. The organisation’s impressive journey includes the launch of a cutting-edge training centre in 2006, followed by the introduction of CATCH Skills in 2017. 2021 marked the birth of CATCH Apprenticeships, ushering in a new era of industrial training. Now, in 2023, CATCH continues its mission with the launch of the CATCH Welding & Pipefitting Hub, an employer-led initiative designed to ensure the region’s workforce possesses the requisite skills to meet the demands of the process industry and mega-scale engineering construction projects essential for industrial decarbonisation in the UK.

“We are thrilled to be working with Beamex, the newest addition to the CATCH Apprenticeship’s valued group of supporters. Their loan of world-leading calibration technology not only aligns seamlessly with CATCH’s commitment to hands-on training and real-world scenarios but also provides our apprentices with the opportunity to refine their skills on cutting-edge equipment. This ensures that each apprentice will emerge from our programs fully prepared for the future,” stated Nigel Simpson, Apprenticeships Centre Manager at CATCH Apprenticeships.

Beamex’s contribution to CATCH’s mission is a testament to its commitment to advancing skills and competencies in the industrial sector. The company’s calibration equipment is recognised globally for its precision and reliability, making it an ideal choice for apprentices seeking to develop their skills on industry-standard tools.

Commenting on the partnership, Aaron Sommerfield, Regional Sales Manager for the Northeast at Beamex, said, “We are honoured to collaborate with CATCH Apprenticeships in their noble endeavour to shape the future of industrial training. By providing our cutting-edge calibration equipment, we hope to empower apprentices with the knowledge and experience necessary to excel in their careers. Beamex shares CATCH’s passion for excellence, and together, we look forward to making a lasting impact on the industrial workforce.”

This partnership between Beamex and CATCH Apprenticeships embodies a shared commitment to nurturing talent and expertise in the industrial sector, ultimately contributing to the growth and sustainability of the industry.
