Mitsubishi Electric Opens Dallas Training Center

Suwanee, Ga. -
Mitsubishi Electric HVAC, Suwanee, Ga., has announced the opening
of its new training center in Dallas, Texas, according to William
Rau, senior vice president and general manager, Mitsubishi Electric
"The Dallas Training Center (DTC) will ensure that our reach for Diamond Dealers expands across the country. It is critical that dealers are fully trained and qualified to sell Mitsubishi products. By opening a training facility west of the Mississippi, we've made it easier for dealers and distributors to receive instruction in a more centralized location, with the goal of ensuring our customers around the country are provided with the best possible service and end-product," says Rau.
The DTC, a 30-by-20 room used for Mitsubishi training, is located at the Gunder & Associates, LLC facility in Dallas. As of the beginning of July, over 60 dealers have been trained at the facility, and another 25 Diamond Dealers have been added to the Central U.S., according to Jeff Ledsinger, sales manager for Gunder & Associates. In addition, the center has been used as a showroom for distributors and dealers and as a venue for meetings with other institutions, housing authorities, and other large-end user prospects.
The center features a classroom designed for 18 attendees and is equipped with both indoor and outdoor Mitsubishi Electric Mr. Slim units. All of these products are fully operational so attendees can participate in hands-on training. Additionally, the center is prepared for a CITY MULTI product installation, with a three-phase disconnect already installed.
"While end-users ultimately benefit from the extensive training that dealers receive, the dealers themselves also benefit from the new training center as the skills they learn help improve their effectiveness and bottom line," says Rau.
Dallas' central location allows dealers easy access from all over North America, especially with Dallas-Fort Worth International and Dallas Love Field Airports only a short drive away. In addition, hotel accommodations for those visiting from out of town are superior, with shuttle rides available to and from the training center and airports.
