Abrasives and power tools company Mirka UK has opened a new state-of-the-art national training centre at its UK HQ at Furzton Lake.

The aim of the investment is to provid customers with expert training and development around the company’s high-quality abrasive, tooling and polishing solutions.

The training centre offers customised training programmes for groups of up to 12, based on customers’ needs.

The 2,500sq ft site includes a demonstration space, where in-house experts can showcase the latest processes and products and attendees can get hands-on training.

Mirka UK MD Craig Daycock said: “The sectors we work in are constantly evolving in terms of the processes and products required to improve production, output and profit whilst still reducing cost and waste. Training is essential for our customers to achieve this.

“To take our onsite customer training to the next level, we made the decision to invest in our own training centre and we look forward to ensuring those users who come through our doors will leave knowing they have developed and learned new skills and techniques that will assist them in their jobs and enable their companies to expand their business opportunities.”
