A new company has been launched to help improve workforce productivity on Teesside.
The TTE Technical Training Group has launched Quantech, which is geared towards helping to address productivity challenges facing the oil and gas, engineering and chemical industries.
Quantech provides services to prove and enhance workforce competence, which are delivered at customer sites in the UK and internationally.
By identifying areas for development, training and systems improvement, Quantech’s competency assessment supports businesses’ productivity and efficiency ambitions.
Borne out of Middlesbrough-based TTE’s extensive experience of delivering technical training, assessment and consultancy services to UK and international companies, including National Oil Companies and global chemical manufacturers, Quantech enables the Group to deliver a comprehensive workforce development offering to industry.
Using industry experts, Quantech offers assessment and verification consultancy services supported by internationally-recognised competency qualifications. These include competency gap analysis, facilitating bespoke workforce up-skilling solutions and support in applying and securing government and international funding for competence initiatives.
TTE managing director Steve Grant, pictured (above) with Quantech’s process and labs services manager Cheryl McMahon, said: “I am very pleased to announce the launch of Quantech, which will help serve the evolving skills and other strategic objectives of the oil, gas and chemical sectors.
“These industries, and in particular the oil & gas sector, face clear and present challenges to become more efficient and productive to address the changing economic and operational environment.
“Working closely with our existing international client base we have identified the need for bespoke competence assessment and development, which builds on and complements our long-standing technical training operations.”
He added: “A competent workforce positively differentiates an organisation from its competition and helps define a company’s competitive advantage in the marketplace.
“Managed correctly, core competence is a major strategic growth and will help to deliver objectives such as staff engagement, retention and meet exacting Quality Assurance targets.”
