HME win contract which will create female engineers

26th October, 2015

A West Midlands-based manufacturer and installer of design and technology equipment has won a £65,000 contract with St Anthony’s Girls Catholic Academy in Sunderland.

HME Technology Ltd will be providing state of the art science and technology facilities to the specialist technology academy, which is having its Listed buildings redeveloped.

Julian Davis, HME managing director, said: “Engineering is desperate to attract more girls into the sector.

“High quality, highly skilled, well paid jobs are available in engineering. Britain must produce things the world wants if it is to succeed. Girls need to play a far more important part in that process and we hope those at St Anthony’s will be inspired by the equipment we have provided and what it can do.”

In 2013 the school became the first Sunderland secondary – there are 17 in the city – to receive an outstanding rating from Ofsted.

Head teacher, Mrs Monica Shepherd, said: “We have been delivering high quality education for young women for over a century.

“The school has had Specialist Technology status since 1999, and Language status since 2009. We are very proud of our many achievements and successes over the years. This is an exciting time at St Anthony’s as we embark on a new phase for the academy with the redevelopment of our site in a huge new building project.”

Founded in 1984, and with its headquarters in Bromsgrove, HME Technology products include forges, brazing hearths, furnaces, welding tables, fume extraction systems, kilns, woodworking equipment, wood dust extraction systems, metal finishing, routers and CNC machines. It also supplies fume cupboards and ventilation systems for science departments.
