Equipment & Tool Donations

At Newgate School, we're in the business of molding the next generation of skilled mechanics and technicians, and we recognize that a crucial part of this process involves giving students access to high-quality, state-of-the-art tools and equipment.

The recent generous donations from Griot's Garage, Caliber Collision, and Heppner’s Auto Body, have undeniably enriched our programs, providing students with real-world training on the tools they will utilize in their future careers. Each contribution, from mechanic supplies to complex machinery like dent pullers and welders, is helping pave the way for our students to become top-notch collision repair technicians and mechanics, fortifying our commitment to exceptional training and education.

We're grateful to Caliber Collision for their recent donation of equipment to Newgate School! We were visited by Matthew (Regional VP), Brian (Talent Acquisition), Craig (Regional Manager) and several Managers from all the local Caliber shops. We can’t thank you enough for helping us to train our students. We received both an Original Killer Tool dent puller and a much-needed Pro Spot Nitrogen Plastic Welder! These valuable tools allow us to provide better training on the skills our students need to become the next generation of collision repair technicians.
