QRL Radiator Group welcomes Weston College students

Posted on March 16, 2016

On the 1st & 2nd of March 2016, QRL Radiator Group opened its doors to 30 Plumbing & Heating students from Weston-Super-Mare College. The college’s Plumbing Lecturer, Scott Austin had the following to say about their visit: “Last week Barlo kindly allowed our L2 students the opportunity to tour its factory and gain invaluable information on radiator design from market leaders. Upon entry of the Newport site, both Weston College staff and students were made extremely welcome. Learners were amazed by the sheer size of the site and overwhelmed that they could see the process of radiators being manufactured from start to finish. One learner commented, “The factory is brilliant and the day has really helped me with the Central Heating Unit”. I believe these types of visits are key to the learners’ time at college, encouraging learning outside of the classroom, seeing how components are produced and having a detailed and informative presentation from knowledgeable staff. I hope this link will continue for future years and I certainly recommend other plumbing departments taking up these opportunities.” David Kerr, Chief Executive at Barlo also commented, “We are so excited to be supporting the next generation of industry professionals and giving them the opportunity to visit the only radiator manufacturing facility in the UK. We will be continuing to extend our support to future generations with opportunities like this and have even created a hashtag (#Barlonextgen) to continue to engage with them.”
