Education

Formerly Kensington College, Bristol University in Anaheim, California, educates future business professionals and provides advanced degrees for those already in the field. Some of Bristol's most outstanding features are its highly qualified faculty and its internship program. Bristol awards associate's, bachelor's and master's degrees in Business Administration. They also offer diplomas in Hospitality Operations and Legal Studies. Classes generally have 20 or fewer students, so that each student may get as much instructor attention as possible. This is particularly beneficial since many of Bristol University's faculty have graduated from such prestigious universities as Georgetown, Harvard, Penn State and Stanford. Students in the Legal Studies program also have the option of participating in a professional internship at a local law firm. Interns generally work one or two days a week, for the last half of their program. They also gain experience that could lead to full-time employment. Admissions requirements for each program are different. Those applying for a diploma, associate's or bachelor's must have a high school diploma or GED. MBA applicants will need to have a bachelor's and a GPA of at least 2.0. All applicants must also interview with an admissions counselor. Applicants may discuss additional requirements with a Bristol University counselor or advisor. Bristol University offers scholarships that cover up to half of tuition. They also participate in Title IV financial aid programs, like loans, Pell grants and other types of federal funding. The application for federal, financial aid, called the FAFSA, is required to receive federal aid.

The Fenner Group was founded in 1861 by Joseph Henry Fenner 21½ Bishop Lane in Hull, England. The early products manufactured were leather and encompassed belting, lacing and hoses, including fire hoses. The flat leather belting for use in power transmission was gaining momentum in the UK at this time, having become common in the USA. In 1893 the Company moved to Marfleet, then a small village outside Hull. By the 1890s the Company was exporting its products widely across Europe and into India and the Far East. In 1913, immediately prior to the First World War, exports comprised over 70% of sales. The wartime loss of its principal markets forced the Company to focus on the domestic opportunities. The Company survived the war years and thereafter, but not without some difficulty. In 1920 the Company’s biggest supplier and business partner for 50 years, Mortimers, gave the Company a blank cheque to tide it over. The amount filled in was £8,300, equivalent to around £340,000 in today’s money. In 1921 Sidney Hainsworth joined the Company from Leeds University as Weaving Manager. He became a director in 1930 and when he retired in 1975 as Chairman, the Company had been transformed. The interwar years saw many technological developments, including woven textile belting for power transmission, conveyor belting processes that would lead to Fenaplast belt in 1952, and also the manufacture of textile reinforced V-belts and pulleys that were to become a mainstay of the power transmission business through to the 1990's, in various developing forms. In 1937 Fenner became a Public Company with share capital of £250,000, and has been quoted on the London Stock Exchange ever since. The business had passed from father to son and then to grandson and indeed there was a Fenner as a director up to 1957. However, it was no longer a private family company and in 1945 Sidney Hainsworth became Managing Director. During World War II the Hull factory suffered substantial damage and rebuilding the facility commenced in 1947. By December 1948 it was fully operational once more. In 1950 a conveyor belt caught fire at the Cresswell Colliery, where 80 miners died mainly from toxic fumes. In response the Coal Board asked Fenner to develop a fire resistant belt. That belt and its successor products became, and continue to be, a world standard in underground coal mining. The 1950s also saw Fenner expand on a worldwide basis establishing companies in Australia, South Africa and India. This was followed by the Group's first acquisition in the USA in 1970. New products were introduced both organically and by acquisition to give the Group a more diversified base from which to operate. A new R&D facility had been built in Hull in 1961, followed by a modern manufacturing facility in 1971. There then followed a period of consistent growth and consolidation, enlivened by fighting off a hostile takeover bid from Hawker Siddeley in 1984. The 1990s were a decade of transformation for Fenner. Major restructuring took place, two rights issues and a series of acquisitions and disposals were made. In particular, the power transmission division, the historical heritage of the Company, was sold in 1998. The Company was transmuted from a diversified engineering group into one focused on reinforced polymers and well positioned to make further strategic acquisitions. Since 2000, Fenner have made 26 acquisitions of varying sizes.* In addition, substantial capital expenditure programmes saw new plants opening and existing ones modernised. These have made Fenner a world leader in heavyweight conveyor belting and a manufacturer in advanced polymer components such as moulded fluoropolymers, extruded polymer products, precision engineered fabrics and related medical products. The focus of Fenner is now on its key markets of energy (mineral extraction and oil/gas), medical and general industrial. Today, the Fenner Group employs over 5,000 people worldwide, with annual turnover in excess of £800 million and is administered from headquarters based on the outskirts of Hull. The Group is a dominant force in the markets in which it operates, across five continents with 36 manufacturing facilities plus 56 sales/service companies based throughout the world.*
