Tracmaster, a Burgess Hill based landscape machinery manufacturer, welcomed a group of students from the machinery and engineering department at Plumpton College on 2nd December, for a field industry visit with a view to providing them with a practical and business user aspect to their course.

Alex Pitt, Director of Tracmaster (, spent the morning with the students, giving them a tour of the workshop and an insight into practicalities of the business side of land-based technology.

Plumpton College lecturer, Alan Pitt commented: “It is a real privilege to be invited to return to Tracmaster with our 2014/15 students and to be allowed access to their modern facilities. The students are studying on the BTEC Level 3 Diploma and Certificate in Land-based Technology. The visit to Tracmaster gave them the opportunity to meet a variety of staff, experience relevant industry equipment and gain valuable experience of business operations, which will hugely benefit their College studies.”
