Bromsgrove based company, Tools of Trade Ltd, suppliers of a range of trade-quality tools, recommended South & City College’s Bordesley Green campus as the backdrop for publicity shots of the launch of their latest range of trowels.
Tools of the Trade Ltd already have had a relationship with the college for four years, supplying a variety of tools for students and apprentices to use whilst they are learning. So, when they commissioned photography company, Green Imaging Ltd, to take the publicity shots for the latest range of trowels, South & City College were recommended as a venue for their in-house expertise to make the shots as authentic as possible.

Simon Winder, Head of School for Plumbing, Gas & Air Conditioning said, “We were an ideal choice as a venue for the photography, as not only do we have great facilities for the backdrop, we also offered consultancy to ensure the tools were used in the correct way and as realistically as possible. The college is at the forefront of the latest tool technology and we get to see and use tools before they even get on the market. This is of great benefit to our students, as they get to be more site-ready, putting them ahead in the job market.”

Dave Green, MD of Green Imaging Ltd added, “I’d been asked to contact Simon Winder to get this project set up and the college have been really helpful. It’s been a really pleasurable experience and nothing has been too much trouble to ensure we get the exact shots needed to meet the brief.”

Faith Guest, MD from Tools of the Trade said, “Tools of the Trade Ltd, have had a long standing relationship with South & City College, we have chosen to work with them as their team are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and focused on delivering exceptional training to their students. Simon Winder has worked with Tools of the Trade Ltd, giving advice when asked and granting access to the students of South and City College, as tomorrow’s generation of trades’ people, Tools of the Trade Ltd value the students’ views and opinions. The venue is exceptional and the staff are a delight to work with. We thank you for allowing us access to your first rate training environment and look forward to a continued and successful relationship moving forward.”
