The Colliery Training College (CTC) in Emalahleni has awarded industrial equipment and tools supplier Industri Tools & Equipment the 2020 contract to supply tool kits, which are used during mining- and engineering- related skills training.
“The CTC, which was established in 1964 specifically for the mining sector, has since diversified and artisan skills training are now available for many different trades,” says investment holding and management company Invicta Holdings MD Kriban Govender.
Industri Tools & Equipment is part of Invicta Holdings’ subsidiary Engineering Solutions Group that distributed engineering consumable products globally.
In addition, students are offered training for various sectors, including electrical, auto electrical and instrumentation, or as riggers, diesel mechanics, plater welders, millwrights and fitters.
The team is proud to be part of this upskilling initiative, which plays an increasingly critical role in South Africa.
The 2020 CTC tool kit contract encompasses the supply of quality-branded hand tools, which are used by hundreds of students every day in the CTC engineering workshops and during practical skills training.
The CTC, which is accredited by the Mining Qualifications Authority and the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations, also has certification from relevant sector education and training authorities, he notes.
In line with the CTC’s commitment to meeting the highest standards in every aspect of the training programme, all tools are carefully selected by specialists, in terms of quality, suitability for the task, safe use and long service-life.
Govender highlights that the company’s extensive product offering is available from seven specialist divisions – tools and equipment, cutting tools, welding products, lifting equipment, personal protective equipment products, locks and machine tools.
The manufacturing division offers workshop repairs and services, as well as the production of a wide range of custom-made industrial materials, including welding screens, strip curtains, fire blankets, spill mats, tarpaulins and dam liners.
The company has its head office in Benrose, Johannesburg, and branches through South Africa and Namibia, he concludes.
