Welcome to Kirkdale Industrial Training Services Ltd (KITS)


KITS was formed in 1991 following the merger between the Halifax and District Group Training Organisation and the Kirklees Training Association. The merger brought together two like-minded training organisations. At the outset, the aim of KITS was to jointly develop a Centre of Excellence for Engineering Training and associated skills in the Calderdale and Kirklees areas. This was enhanced during 1994 with the opening of a new centre at Brighouse.
