Delphi Academy unveils major expansion plans

The Delphi Academy is undergoing a significant expansion project, as it looks to meet the ever-evolving needs of workshops across the UK.

The company is investing £500,000 into the Delphi Academy project. With this funding, it aims to double the size of the building by extending into a neighbouring unit, bringing the total floorspace to 1,430 square metres.

“We are 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.”

EV plans for Delphi Academy

The Delphi Academy extension will feature brand new state-of-the-art training amenities dedicated to hybrid and electric vehicle training. 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 with glass-fronted walls will provide a sweeping panoramic view of the workshop. It will house a dedicated breakout area, offering comfortable seating and refreshment facilities for client management activities.

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

The investment additionally incorporates a soundproof recording studio, reflecting Delphi’s continued commitment to delivering its ever-popular digital training resources. Equipped with cameras, lighting and a greenscreen, the in-house studio will facilitate the production of new training videos, webinars, interactive simulations and much more.

The new Delphi Academy facilities are expected to be operational from the third quarter of 2024.
