The company, which has a strong presence across the North-West region, has recently made a large investment in the Borough of Trafford by upgrading its air separation unit at its plant in Carrington.

Supporting education and inspiring young people to consider a career in STEM related subjects is a priority for Air Products. Apprentice, Connor Neild who now works at Air Products’ Hull plant after completing his training at Trafford College, helped influence the decision to support the local community through the donation.

Trafford College Engineering tutor, Everton Grant, was invited to a celebratory event recently where he was presented with the £2,000 cheque by Corning Painter, Executive Vice President,

Lynn Willacy, Community & STEM Ambassador UK & Ireland, and Tim Hulbert, Vice President, Industrial Gases, UK & Ireland of Air Products.

Tim Hulbert commented, “As one of the world’s leading industrial gas companies we are proud of our strong roots and heritage in the North West.  Supporting education and inspiring young people to consider a career in STEM related subjects is important to us and we are pleased that our donation has been able to fund the upgrading of the Engineering CAD system at Trafford College, and support students in achieving their ambition of becoming engineers of the future.”

Steve Jones, Director for STEM with Trafford College added, “Trafford College is delighted to receive this kind donation from Air Products, who are such a major company in our area. This gift will be used to invest further in specialist IT equipment for the section, which will benefit both our employed Engineering apprentices and full-time learners alike.”
