SYNETIQ Jaguar with students Sept 2019 (1)

Motor vehicle students at Reaseheath College in Nantwich are learning their trade on the latest road cars thanks to donation from local salvage and vehicle recycling company SYNETIQ.

The company, formerly known as Car Transplants, merged with Motorhog, FAB Recycling and DH Systems, and provides a national service or insurers, company fleets and police forces.

Car Transplants has had a long-standing partnership with Reaseheath’s motor vehicle department.

And it is continuing post merger to loan the college current models and static engines from its car salvage and dismantling base in Hurleston.

The latest intake of vehicle technicians are developing skills by working on vehicles in Reaseheath’s automative workshop.

Motor Vehicle Programme Leader Simon Bishop said: “We were delighted to receive the latest delivery of cars and static engines from SYNETIQ.

“The vehicles are typical of the road cars which come into garages for repair or service on a daily basis.

“By introducing our students to current technology and systems we are able to give them relevant skills which prepare them for the world of work.”

Director at SYNETIQ Mark Schofield, said: “We actively support Reaseheath’s motor vehicle department because the next generation of motor vehicle technicians are the future life blood of our industry.

“Our partnership with the college is also part of our wider engagement with our local community.”

SYNETIQ also sponsors student awards and supports the college’s Family Festival by exhibiting one of its top-of-the-range vehicle transporters.

The company also supplies two vehicles used by Nantwich’s ambulance first responders while Reaseheath’s vehicle technicians provide regular servicing and safety checks.

Vehicle student Alex Beech said: “The facilities are brilliant here.

“We have loads of bays to work in and the cars range from a Jaguar and a big off road XTrail to a small Ford KA, so we get the chance to work across a range of engine sizes and different components.”

Fellow student Ryan Luffman added: “It’s really important that we leave college with the ability to fix all types of road car and the variety of vehicles we get from SYNETIQ, plus the fact they are in good condition, is a massive bonus for us.”
