Wittmann UK Provides Hardware for Berry Group Training Academy

Wittmann Battenfeld UK has loaned the Berry Group Technical Training Centre a Tempro Primus C90 mould temperature controller and a Feedmax hopper loader for material supply, to assist the employer-led training academy in delivering Level 3 Science Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeships to its employees.

Wittmann UK Area Sales Manager Orrin Smith made the Christmas season presentation at the company’s Oakham training site this week.

Orrin comments: ‘I am particularly pleased to be helping Berry Group in this way since I undertook a 4-year apprenticeship in plastics processing myself. I know how important it is to learn using the best possible equipment – particularly in terms of reliability and performance.’

Wittmann UK continues to support plastics processing throughout the UK: the company recently supplied the UK’s Polymer Training and Innovation Centre – PTIC Telford – with a class-leading and energy-efficient SmartPlus120 injection moulding machine. The new moulding machine was shipped and supplied by Wittmann to the Telford facility as part of a new partnership to supply the latest, most energy-efficient machinery to the Telford site.

The Berry Group is one of the world’s leading packaging design and production companies. Previously the Oakham site belonged to the RPC Group, which Berry took over in July 2019.
