Delphi Academy to undergo £500,000 expansion


Delphi is investing £500,000 in its academy to meet the evolving needs of UK workshops.

The Warwick-based Delphi Academy will double in size to add state-of-the-art areas for to hybrid and electric vehicle training, including an industry-first IMI hydrogen technology course.

Growing to 1430 square meters in size, by expanding into a neighbouring unit, it will house four additional classrooms and an open-plan workshop with two lifts, EV training aids, and additional Delphi training vehicles. Elsewhere, an executive meeting room will house a dedicated breakout area.

A soundproof recording studio will also be built, where new training videos, webinars, interactive simulations and more can be filmed.

“We’re committed to staying ahead of the curve,” said Luke Garratt, UK technical services manager at Delphi. “This latest investment puts a focus on future technology and underscores our dedication to providing cutting-edge resources that empower workshops to excel in an ever-evolving industry.”

He added: “As an OE and Aftermarket manufacturer we’re stepping up our role to support workshops. “All of our trainers are experienced technicians that understand workshop life. The courses are based on real-world experiences, scenarios, and diagnostic procedures.”

The new Delphi Academy facilities are expected to be operational from Q3 2024.
