RS Components Support Students
Tresham has recently received a generous donation of equipment from RS Components. The range of products including tool boxes, electrical equipment and extension leads were surplus to requirements and were presented to the college at the beginning of March to improve and enhance students learning environment and their experiences.
RS Components, based in Corby, have been serving engineers and procurement specialists for more than 75 years and are the world’s leading high-service distributor of electronics, automation and control components, tools and consumables, serving over 1 million customers globally.
Matthew McMullan (Health, Safety, Environmental & Estates Team Leader at Tresham) met with Ken Simpson (Environment/Sustainability Manager) and Lorna Ferguson (Operations Supervisor) at the Corby site of RS Components to receive the latest of their donations to the college.
This is not the first time RS Components have donated equipment to the college and they are keen to continue to donate surplus products to Tresham as a local college as they understand what a great impact it will have on the College. The donations will be used by Tresham’s Estates department as well as student workshops; the products are gratefully received and much appreciated.
Ken Simpson said
“We wanted to support Tresham because it’s a local educational provider and we have a couple of apprentices with Tresham. We’re extremely satisfied that our donations will help the College environment and help to support the students.”
Matthew McMullan added
“Support from companies such as RS Components is extremely important to us at the college and we are grateful that they have been so generous donating the variety of equipment which we will put to good use for our students and within the Estates team.”
RS Components are hoping to make a monthly donation to Tresham for the foreseeable future as they believe it will be extremely beneficial to build relationships and support the learning of students.
