Pressure Hydraulics Cork becomes Ireland’s only accredited Bosch Rexroth training centre

Bosch Rexroth has announced Pressure Hydraulics Cork (PHC) as its Authorised Training Centre with an official certificate of accreditation.

Based in Cork, PHC is the only facility in Ireland to be recognised as an Authorised Training Centre by Bosch Rexroth.

According to the certificate, PHC – one of Ireland‘s leading suppliers of hydraulic valves, pumps, and filters – demonstrated exceptional standards from equipment quality through to delivery of training.

The company has been providing training on industrial hydraulics and controls for three years and plans to grow its training offer to the Irish market with a focus on bespoke courses for its customers, tailored to suit individual requirements. 

Jim Hickey, managing director at PHC, said becoming the only certified training centre in Ireland is “a significant achievement” and something the company is proud of.

 “The Irish manufacturing industry is doing really well right now after experiencing an increase in new orders and a faster rate of expansion over the last six months,” Hickey said.

“Our site in Cork will be a great support for companies in Ireland looking to train individuals to the best of their ability, from beginners through to experienced engineers.”

The facility has a dedicated training room complete with Bosch Rexroth training rigs, offering a hands-on experience, and the on-site trainer is also Bosch Rexroth approved.

The certified tutors are a mixture of current field service engineers, application engineers, and test engineers with personal access to a great amount of practical understanding and real-life experience.

Andrew Collins, operations director at Bosch Rexroth, noted that all accredited training facilities and trainers have to meet various criteria before achieving accreditation.

“The results from these rigorous assessments mean we can now ascertain that Pressure Hydraulics Cork provides the best quality training, from equipment through to personnel. The accreditation is not only great for Pressure Hydraulics Cork but also for Ireland as a whole,” said Collins.
