Movac Group Ltd, one of the largest independent UK based coatings suppliers serving the automotive, wood and industrial markets has presented Suffolk New College with a new Max Meyer Paint Mixing Scheme for its Automotive students.
Movac Group’s Mark Smith, Managing Director and Andy Mansfield, Group Sales Director recently visited the automotive department at Suffolk New College, where they spent the day talking with students who are studying motor vehicle courses – including vehicle maintenance and vehicle accident repair.
The students and lecturers were also given a surprise when Mark Smith presented them with a Max Meyer Paint Mixing Scheme.
Richard Glover, Suffolk New College Lecturer said, “The mixing station will allow students to mix paint to colour match exactly to the customers’ requirements and is invaluable to their teaching. This will ultimately create a simulated working environment, this is as real as it comes and prepares our students for the industry. We no longer need to relate it to theory, as we are teaching them exactly how it is done in the industry.”
Movac have also offered work experience for the students at their Ipswich Head Office to work front of house with customers and to also assist in the colour mixing stages.
Andy Mansfield, Sales Director at Movac said, “As our head office is based in Ipswich it's important for us to do something for the local community and we are pleased to support Suffolk New College. It has been a great pleasure to speak to students and help them expand their knowledge on the day to day activities in the working environment.”
