INCORPORATED IN 2000, TQ EXEL LTD CONTINUES TO BE LEADING PROVIDER OF TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS TO THE HIGHWAY SECTOR CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY.
On April 4th 2020 TQ Exel Ltd reached the milestone of 20 years of trading under very strange circumstances, finding ourselves unable to operate due to the Covid-19 pandemic through April, May and most of June. We were able to adapt to the “new normal”, offering a Covid secure environment at our Somerset training centre and have worked hard with our loyal client base to enable on-site training and assessment to continue.
Over the past 20 years the business has seen consistent growth, developing excellent long term relationships with several Tier 1 Contractors and Local Authorities throughout the UK as well as looking after the needs of many local SME’s. Over the years we have expanded the range of courses that we offer, having recently added First Aid Training to our range of courses through our relationship with NUCO Training.
Current Managing Director, Sam Abbott, joined the business as a Project Manager in September 1999, was appointed as a Director in 2004 and, along with his wife Mandy, took overall control of the business from December 2009.
TQ Exel’s management system has been constantly updated and has been certificated to the latest ISO 9001:2015 by BSI. Our Awarding Organisation approvals are with City and Guilds, Lantra, NPORS, BALI, CITB and JAUPT for the nationally recognised programmes that we deliver.
As a business we think it is important to bear in mind the environment and support local businesses where we can. Our company vehicles are supplied by Bristol Honda, with our full time high mileage users having either the latest low emission, highly fuel efficient 1.6 Diesel models or, more recently, the latest Petrol Hybrid option. TQ Exel are also proud to sponsor our local “Somerset Rebels” speedway team based at the Oaktree Arena just 4 miles from our office location.
For many years we have been supporting Christian Aid and The Africa Trust through our relationship with AquAid who supply the Water Coolers and Water in our office and training rooms.
