Thanks to Blue Diamond Pump, students at Eastleigh College will continue to train with excellent industry-standard equipment to enhance their skills and knowledge preparing them for their future career. The company’s high-end condensate pumps which are fitted with the latest technology, will give students confidence in using, fitting and fixing the equipment.
