TWO NEW TRAINING CENTERS IN NORTHEASTERN ZONE
SUWANEE, Ga. – April 20, 2009 – Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Advanced Products Division is excited to annouce the addition of two new training centers located in the Northeastern zone. The opening of these new centers further underscores Mitsubishi Electric HVAC’s commitment to providing contractors, engineers and distributors throughout the country with the best training and sales information possible, according to Tony Hayes, Director of Service, Mitsubishi Electric HVAC.
The Northeastern zone office and Boston Training Center (BTC), which opened in March 2009, features more than 4,700 square feet of space, 1,600 of which is dedicated to training. The center will host both CITY MULTI® VRFZ and Mr. Slim® installation and service and sales training courses, plus other product information seminars. The remaining space will house the Northeastern zone sales office.
“With the opening of our fifth corporate training center, we hope to make it easier for our customers to receive instruction at an easy-to-reach, centralized location,” says Hayes. “The new BTC also allows us to ensure end-user customers around the country have access to well-trained contractors, quality products and the best possible service.”
The BTC features fully functional CITY MULTI VRFZ and Mr. Slim split-ductless equipment. The training center contains various centralized, wired and wireless remote controllers to round out the training. The classroom has a fully integrated audio/visual presentation system to allow for interactive training sessions.
“The extensive training helps contractors improve their skills and effectiveness, as well as their bottom line,” says Hayes. “End-user customers also benefit because contractors who have completed the training courses are fully equipped and qualified to sell, install and service Mitsubishi products.”
Located 45 minutes west of Boston in South Borough, Mass., the sales and training center is a convenient destination for contractors, engineers and distributors who want to participate in training courses or hold and attend sales meetings. In addition, Mitsubishi Electric HVAC’s service training program is a registered provider for North American Technician Excellence (NATE) Recertification. Mitsubishi Electric HVAC training centers also are located in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and Irvine, Calif.
In addition to the opening of Mitsubishi Electric HVAC’s Northeastern facility, ABCO Refrigeration Supply Corporation, located in Long Island City, N.Y., recently celebrated the opening of the first authorized Mitsubishi Electric HVAC training facility in the tri-state area. The center, located in White Plains, N.Y., features more than 1,700 square feet of high-tech training space in a state-of-the-art 30,000-square-foot facility.
ABCO, a Mitsubishi Electric HVAC distributor, hopes this center will provide their valued customers with the finest in technical, marketing and business management training in a convenient location for HVAC/R contractors working in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
“We were enthusiastic about the opportunity to develop this high-tech training center in conjunction with Mitsubishi Electric and we look forward to sharing its value with all of our customers,” says Michael Senter, chief executive officer, ABCO Refrigeration Supply Corporation.
