Haulotte China and Changzhou Vocational Institute of Mechatronic Technology have held the signing ceremony for their cooperation on MEWP talent training in a facility located in Changzhou, China.
Harry Wang, general manager of Haulotte Shanghai, shared that Haulotte, as a century-old and leading MEWP manufacturer in Europe, was first established in France, and it has always regarded the training of technical talents as one of the top priorities.
“We recognised the shortage of professionals for MEWP industry and the demand of rental companies for excellent service engineers during our business development in China and cooperation and communication with customers, so it is imperative to train MEWP talents.”
Mr Wang also pointed out that Haulotte’s working closely with Changzhou Vocational Institute of Mechatronic Technology, a leading vocational education organisation in China, will continuously develop excellent technical talents for the MEWP industry and rental company customers in the future.
Furthermore, the move is the response of Haulotte to the initiative ‘Strive to foster a team of engineers’ as an important deployment of ‘accelerating the development of national strategic talents’ proposed by the Chinese government in 2021.
Zhu Ping, CPC committee deputy secretary of Changzhou Vocational Institute of Mechatronic Technology, said that Haulotte is the first MEWP manufacturer to utilise the industry-education integration to cooperate with the colleges, and the pioneer in promoting the development of the industry and training talents for the MEWP industry.
“Through all-round cooperation and being deeply integrated with each other, we expect to complement each other’s strengths and cooperate to train high-quality MEWP talents and highly skilled outstanding engineers,” said Mr Zhu.
