Eemax recently celebrated the grand opening of a new 7,000-square-foot innovation learning center at the company’s corporate headquarters in Waterbury, Connecticut. A hub for training, creative exploration, and water heating education, the center will serve as a collaborative space for engineers, manufacturer’s representatives, wholesalers, and plumbers/contractors in the Northeast and nationwide.
“This center is not just about showing PowerPoint slides,” said Kevin Ruppelt, vice president and general manager, Raypak and Eemax. “It is about having a robust, hands-on training experience where our customers can see, touch, troubleshoot and repair units. It’s about more than just products. It’s about the whole integrated event of learning, networking and team-building.”
The company has announced the following dates for training in January:
Plumber/contractor — Jan. 22
Whether you’re a “lone wolf” servicing individual homeowners or part of a “pack of plumbers” hunting down commercial projects, the Eemax plumber/contractor one-day training class is a hands-on teardown, rebuild, and troubleshooting experience which builds confidence and familiarity with the Eemax residential and light-commercial products. Tradespeople that know Eemax electric tankless products know how to solve hot water solutions that others cannot fix.
Specifying engineer — Jan. 25
In this one-day class, specifying engineers will learn about the problem-solving qualities of Eemax Electric Tankless Water Heaters and how to design functional and efficient water heating solutions. Eemax heater sizing and selection for hand-washing, commercial/industrial water heating, and tepid water solutions using advanced calculation tools and worksheets give the engineer a solid foundation to specify Eemax hot water products in a variety of projects.
Wholesaler — Jan. 26
The counterperson and outside salesperson is often the local expert called upon to help solve water heating problems encountered by plumbers and contractors alike. But does your staff know and understand the best Eemax product to offer? This one-day wholesale distributors class gives your inside and outside salespeople exposure to all Eemax product, plus sizing exercises and an understanding of common problems seen in the field.
