Grundfos “Pumps on Tour” to give users hands-on training
The mobile education vehicle will offer practical information and training in the latest pump technology at more than 55 locations.
The 2011 Grundfos “Pumps on Tour” vehicle will be traveling to more than 55 locations in the United States and Canada. This fully equipped mobile education center is designed for the residential, commercial, and industrial pumping industry, and it offers contractors and engineers the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on training using interactive pump displays.
The 1,200-sq-ft vehicle includes a mini-theater for viewing training videos and presentations and a series of interactive, working displays of a wide selection of Grundfos pumps. Grundfos hopes the tour will help customers increase their knowledge, experience new technologies, and exchange ideas with one another.
The tour kicked off April 5 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and will make multiple stops throughout the southern half of the United Sates before traveling to Canada in late May.
