Brammer invest in future of UK manufacturing with major sponsorship

World Skills UK

Brammer, the leading suppliers of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services, have agreed a major strategic sponsorship with World Skills UK to sponsor The Skills Show.

Brammer have signed a three-year sponsorship agreement, demonstrating their commitment to supporting training and development for the UK manufacturing sector and, in particular, skills development among young people in the UK.

The Skills Show is the largest skills and careers event in the UK, celebrating the best in apprenticeships, employer training and further education that the UK has to offer. The exhibition highlights the importance of skills to economic growth, and will include a range of competitions, ‘Have a Go’ activities, spotlight features, careers advice and a conference and seminar programme. The event takes place at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, from 15-17 November 2012.


Brammer will be attending the exhibition with their innovative Mobile Centre of Excellence, which will showcase the company’s product and service offering to visitors. Containing interactive demonstration rigs, the Mobile Centre of Excellence allows Brammer to highlight technological innovation and specialist expertize in a number of key product application areas.

Kevin Lacey, marketing and growth director at Brammer, commented: ‘Knowledge, skills and expertize are vital to economic growth in the UK and key to achieving this is the promotion of manufacturing as a rewarding career path. The Skills Show is an important event for showcasing the very best the country has to offer in terms of apprenticeships, employer training and further education, which is why we are backing it through sponsorship.

‘We are committed to improving the vocational skills of younger people through practical learning, in order to teach the valuable skills that they can use in real working environments. Investing in skills growth now will ensure we are laying the foundations for success in UK manufacturing for years to come, helping to keep the UK economy competitive in increasingly challenging global markets.’
