College proudly partners with Arctic Hayes

16th Jan 2023

Abingdon & Witney College proudly partner with Arctic Hayes, a manufacturer of heating and plumbing supplies.

Abingdon & Witney College regularly use Arctic Hayes' high-quality tools and consumables in their teaching, and now through their new partnership, the College are able to offer their students even more than before.

"We are excited to be partnering with Arctic Hayes. We work hard to ensure our students are given access to the latest technology so that we can best equipped them for the work place. Arctic Hayes' new sponsored bay will help us to achieve this. Thank you to Niall and the Team for your generous support." Mark French, Head of Bicester Construction Skills Centre.  

Arctic Hayes have sponsored a training bay at the College's Bicester Construction Skills Centre, the £1m construction training centre in Bicester. The training bay will be used to teach students how to use Arctic Hayes Pipe Freezing Kits; new technology which enables plumbers and heating engineers to freeze water in order to carry out pipe repairs without draining entire systems beforehand. The technology has been designed to minimise disruption and to save time and money, with the use of a kit reducing job time by 85% on average (based on a 2 hour drain down and refill).

Alongside the new provisions, Arctic Hayes Business Development Executive, Niall McGuckin, has led interactive demonstrations for students at Bicester Construction Skills Centre. To support students even further in their learning, Arctic Hayes kindly set up a discount for all students at the College who can now receive 10% off their products.

On behalf of Arctic Hayes, Niall McGuckin, AH BDE, shared: "Arctic Hayes are proud to be working in partnership with Mark, Graham and the team at Abingdon & Witney College, as they look to educate the next generation with Pipe Freezing and more. Thank you for letting us be a part of your Journey".

If you would like to take a look at the new training bays and the rest of the state of the art facilities at the Bicester Skills Construction Centre, come along to the Open Day on 21st January 2023 at 9am.
