Representatives of the school or college, and government ministers and dignitaries will attend the HTEC opening events, as will journalists from the regional and national press.
The new facilities are supported by HTEC partner companies; some of the best names in the precision engineering technology sector, including KELLER, MasterCam, Esprit, Renishaw, Sandvik Coromant, Schunk, Blaser, Urma, Chick and the latest member to join the program, Air Turbines.
“By ensuring a steady supply of CNC technologists, Haas Automation Europe (HAE), its HFOs and the HTEC vendor partners are making very significant contributions to the future prosperity of European industry,” says Mr. Peter Hall, HAE managing director. “It’s these young apprentices who will become the manufacturers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. They will face some of the greatest technological challenges since the industrial revolution.”
Haas plans to open 200 HTEC’s across Europe within 5 years, including 25 in 2009.
