New Pettinaroli UK Academy

Fratelli Pettinaroli Group, the Italian brass manufacturing company, has chosen Pettinaroli UK to be its international training centre.

There has never been a greater need for training as water distribution systems are the transportation for energy within buildings. Just by enhancing the way hydronics systems are designed, commissioned, and controlled, can make significant savings in energy while improving occupant comfort and wellbeing.

Pettinaroli believes that the building services industry employs more practical minded people who learn by doing. The firm has developed hands-on practical demonstration rigs that give trainee engineers, apprentices and commissioning engineers hands on experience in a classroom environment. Experienced tutors are on hand, to help guide and provide explanation of how to use test equipment and further explain the results.

The company is committed to helping the hydronic industry advance and create more healthy and sustainable places where people live, work, learn and play.

The Academy opened on 15 November at their offices in Hamstead by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham Maureen Cornish JP along with Pettinaroli Group chief executive Ugo Pettinaroli.
