UK: Tarmac has been presented with Bronze Corporate Partner status by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). A presentation was made at the company’s Tunstead cement plant.
The Bronze award from IChemE demonstrates a commitment by Tarmac’s cement and lime business to advance the profession through various activities. A IChemE Accredited Company Training Scheme (ACTS) currently runs from the site, and has five graduates enrolled across the business. The scheme provides engineers with practical skills training relevant to their roles at Tarmac, and puts steps in place in order for them to achieve Chartered Chemical Engineer status.
“We’re delighted to accept this status and absolutely recognise importance of working with organisations with a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. We strive across the whole of our business to provide training and development opportunities for our employees, and this is a fantastic opportunity to take this practice a step further with official recognition,” said Mike Eberlin, managing director of Tarmac’s cement and lime business.
