Why did you decide to base your business at CATCH
Since the 1960’s the Roxby name has been synonymous with a wide range of training, it established a reputation for delivering first class, fast response training to a wide range of industries from its Roxby Training Solutions (RTS) HQ based in Teesside, meeting its clients’ needs in all cases. Its focus on CompEx (Competency in Explosive Atmospheres) meant it fast became a centre of excellence for CompEx training. Through the training network we were approached discussions commenced with CATCH in 2013 to replicate this training facility within the Humber region. The opportunity was seized & the CompEx accredited centre was established & formally opened in March 2014.
The Humber for many years was primarily associated with the oil, gas and chemical industries and of late it has become a growth leader in the renewable, energy and bio-renewables too that shall further grow to engulf the carbon capture and Hydrogen sectors, all containing some form of hazardous areas. RTS Co-Owners David Sumpter and Geoff Fulcher along with their team have shown their continued commitment and investment to these industries by expanding the centre and by continuing to develop the courses provided to meet the requirement of the growing diverseness of industries in the area. We look forward to expanding on the training we provide moving forward as part of the CATCH training hub and their successful journey.
As Leonardo Da Vinci once said, “Learning never exhausts the mind.” So into 2021 we go with the greatest optimism that it will be a safe and successful year, providing our clients that learning experience that hopefully will not exhaust their minds, well not too much anyway.
