Schneider Electric SA and Amtec Techniquip collaborate to boost local access to education

Energy management and automation specialist, Schneider Electric South Africa and Amtec Techniquip, a leading provider of locally manufactured educational equipment have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which will see the organisations collaborating in creating access to education through the availability of a large range of practical training equipment for education.

As a result of the MOU, Schneider Electric South Africa will now be able to provide locally manufactured didactic benches, as Amtec Techniquip will be incorporating high-quality Schneider Electric components into their locally manufactured benches, delivered to education institutions in Southern Africa.

This is a major step forward in providing high-quality training equipment with local content. Didactic benches bridge the gap between theory and practice and form a critical part of the practical component for vocational training across the globe.

The collaboration also underscores Schneider Electric’s ongoing commitment to providing world-class equipment to local education institutions. These locally manufactured didactic benches will for example be used at the F’SASEC (French South African Schneider Electric Education Centre) network partners across the country and at Schneider Electric partners and customers in Southern Africa.

“Our MOU with Amtec Techniquip is an important step towards providing access to high-quality education and re-emphasises Schneider Electric’s support of local businesses and content. Amtec Techniquip manufactures high-quality and innovative equipment which made them the perfect fit for our training solutions,” comments Zanelle Dalglish, Head of Sustainable Development and Academy for Anglophone Africa, at Schneider Electric South Africa.

The MOU will see Amtec Techniquip promoting the locally manufactured Schneider Electric didactic benches to its current customer base and those referred to the company by Schneider Electric. In return, Schneider Electric will recommend Amtec Techniquip to its partners that require educational equipment with Schneider Electric components.

Adds Jeff Forté, Director of Amtec Techniquip: “By utilising Schneider Electric components and working together on all of our current and future training solutions we want to offer both our and Schneider Electric’s customers a range of quality equipment that meet international standards and reflects our high-level of work.

“Through the potential growth of our partnership with Schneider Electric we want to create more jobs, as well as expand our offer with new innovative technologies. Also, we want to show that SA has the capability to be a leading manufacturer in the international marketplace,” he says.
