Hochiki Europe renews apprenticeship equipment donation to Banham Academy

14 May 2024

HOCHIKI EUROPE has confirmed the continuation of its partnership with the Banham Academy, the provider of fire safety engineering apprenticeships. This renewed commitment comes in the form of a significant donation of additional fire safety equipment, further enhancing the Banham Academy’s ability to train the next generation of fire safety specialists.

Building on a successful initial donation in 2023, Hochiki Europe’s latest contribution includes a selection of ESP intelligent and CDX conventional devices for the Banham Academy in London. This donation will allow apprentices to gain practical experience with innovative life safety technologies, ensuring they graduate with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their forthcoming careers.

“We’re delighted to continue our support of the Banham Academy,” enthused Shinsuke Kubo, managing director at Hochiki Europe. “Equipping future fire safety engineers with the tools and expertise they need is essential for maintaining the highest standards of life safety. By providing apprentices with hands-on training on our industry-leading products, we’re fully confident that they will be prepared to make a positive impact on the communities they serve.”

Kevin Faulkner, operations director at the Banham Academy, has expressed his appreciation for the donation.

“Last year,” noted Faulkner, “Hochiki was able to donate a vast range of equipment. This gave our students in Derby invaluable real-world experiences. Hochiki manufactures some great products and, of course, we want to offer the best education to our students, so we were thrilled when the company said ‘Yes’ to providing more equipment, this time for our London-based Academy.”

Hochiki Europe’s ongoing partnership with the Banham Academy underscores the company’s dedication to fostering a new generation of fire safety professionals.

With a continued commitment to innovation and education, Hochiki Europe plays a key role in ensuring the safety of buildings and occupants across the UK, Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa.
