BPW joins forces with Glasgow based GTG

BPW Limited, a subsidiary of BPW Bergische Achsen, one of the leading drivers of innovation in the transport industry, has announced a training partnership with Glasgow-based GTG. GTG, who provide training services to many of the UK’s largest companies, will take responsibility for BPW’s heavy axle training courses in Scotland. This ensures that BPW customers north of the border now have local access to BPW’s maintenance training programme.

The combination of GTG’s established training expertise and that of BPW’s quality, engineered axle and suspension systems, can only help to further endorse BPW’s commitment to ensuring trailer maintenance is given the same level of importance as that of the truck.

Neill Groves, BPW Sales and Marketing Director said, “In our drive to support the market with the necessary workshop skills, BPW has always invested in creating training opportunities whether it be through our in-house training facilities in Leicester or our mobile training vehicle – the Infomobil. With the industry’s increasing focus on availability of skilled technicians, GTG, with their excellent facilities and expertise in commercial vehicle training, were an obvious choice of partner to provide local workshop training.”

Training is paramount when it comes to profiting from your running gear. As BPW sees it, having specified their equipment, it is an investment worth protecting to ensure its longevity, efficiency and performance. In correctly maintaining the equipment, fleet operators can be confident in the safe day-to-day operation of their vehicles and expect to see a reduction in downtime, longer service intervals and ultimately, financial gain.

GTG’s Automotive Training Manager, Iain Wallace said, “GTG Training is delighted to have been chosen as the preferred training company for BPW’s axle training. As a result we can now offer the much-needed axle maintenance course for Scotland-based companies who haven’t previously had access to it. BPW has provided our trainers with extensive expert guidance, and has also supplied axles and training resources. In partnership with BPW, we look forward to bringing a range of new skills to technicians in Scotland and working with them to develop more courses in the future.”

GTG will provide BPW’s in-depth training course throughout the year, which covers several modules. These include the patented BPW ECO hub systems, drum and disc brake technology, as well as the BPW range of suspension systems. In following BPW’s certified training programme, technicians will have to meet exacting standards. As part of this co-operation, GTG has ready access to all the essentials: everything it needs in terms of working exhibits and kits for hands-on classroom training, which is an essential part of this two-day course.
