Spalding Students build up reputation

A group of young engineers from Spalding Grammar School have been helping make a professional business more efficient.

For the last three years the school has been in partnership with bulk materials handling firm Guttridge as part of the Engineering Education Scheme.

Last year’s Year 12 students took on the challenge of re-creating one of Guttridge’s threshing machines but with see-through elements.
The students were then able to show the professionals what parts of the machine could be made more efficient and highlighted potential parts that are more difficult to clean before another foodstuff goes through the machine.

The students and head of design and technology Dion Jones delivered it to Guttridge on Monday.

The company’s MD, Noz Talukdar, said: “It’s not just about presenting us with great ideas, it’s also about working with local young engineers and supporting them.”
