Two sessions were held with students from the college’s Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair course. The event coincided with MPD’s recent relocation near to the college, in addition to the company stocking DENSO’s OE Lambda Sensors, Mass Air Flow Sensors, Hybrid Wipers and Alternators since last year.
Kevin Blazey, MPD’s Marketing Manager, expressed his delight at the success of the event and paid tribute to DENSO for their participation.
“I’d like to extend my sincerest thanks to DENSO their involvement in this inaugural technically focused event,” said Mr Blazey.
“The event was hugely successful, with a number of students openly remarking upon the usefulness of its content. For us, the aim of the event was to inspire and educating the next generation of engineers, and I certainly feel that this has been achieved.”
DENSO’s Martin Pring, manager, insisted it was critical for the new generation of mechanics and engineers to be as prepared as possible when embarking on a career in the industry.
“The future of our industry is in the hands of those just setting out on their careers within the automotive market. It is vital that we arm them with the most relevant and interesting information that we can, to ensure that they remain invested,” said Mr Pring.
“The technical presentation to South Devon College was the perfect way to do this. More than this, it was a great pleasure to work so closely with the team at MPD. I’ve no doubt that we’ll be looking at ways to repeat this success with even more joint initiatives in the future.”
