World Skills diary, February 2005

As a global Founding Sponsor Partner Within the UK, there's considerable interest in the 38th World Skills Competition to be in held in Helsinki in May both from Festo, Global Founding Sponsor Partnet and UK finalists Matt Goodwin and James Dellacioppa from Federal Mogul Friction Products.


As a global Founding Sponsor Partner, Festo takes a keen interest in the 38th World Skills Competition to be in held in Helsinki in May, where we'll be providing equipment from our Modular Production System range for the Mechatronics final. Within the UK, there's considerable local Festo interest too. Tickets to Finland for UK finalists Matt Goodwin and James Dellacioppa from Federal Mogul Friction Products won't be finally booked until they pass scrutiny by UK Skills this month.

So we're providing some extra coaching at Northampton, and have loaned them a distribution and testing system from the Modular Production System range. That gives them a valuable opportunity to work on the type of equipment they could meet under full competitive pressure in May. As practice for the competition they recently took part as guests in the German national competition gaining valuable experience and giving a creditable account of themselves.
