£1.5m extension for training specialist

A Black Country training provider has pushed the button on a £1.5m extension that will more than triple the size of its facility in Aldridge. In-Comm Training, which was recently awarded ‘Outstanding’ status by Ofsted, has joined forces with workholding specialist Hyfore to develop what it is calling an Advanced Manufacturing Technology Centre next door to its current site in Vigo Place.

Backed by the Black Country LEP’s Growth Deal, the ambitious plan will create an additional 16,000 sq ft of space that will be fitted out with CNC machine tools, automation and a robotics line. The facility will also house material testing, material handling and grinding capabilities, as well as a 16-seat Mastercam and CIMCO CADCAM studio to help students develop their design-for-manufacturing skills.
