Eight organisations have signed up to take part in this summer’s IRTE Skills Challenge for their first time. The new recruit competitors are Abellio, Metroline, Coastal Coaches, Gwyn Jones & Son Ltd, Paul Clark Services Ltd, London United, Tower Transit and Transdev Lancashire United. They join competition stalwarts Arriva, First Group, Go Ahead London, London Borough of Redbridge and Translink. The competition takes place at S&B Automotive Academy, Bristol in the first week of June. Sponsored by Allison Transmission, Bridgestone, Knorr-Bremse and Shell Lubricants, the winners will receive prizes from Teng Tools.
London United Training Manager, Derek Mills, said, ‘London United sees the IRTE Skills Challenge as an opportunity for our engineers to compete with their opposite numbers from other companies to allow for comparison within our industry. Competitions like this allow us and our engineers to gauge whether our company is keeping abreast of technologies and best practices within our industry.’
