New training centre

Investing into the future - New training centre inaugurated

After less than one year of construction Sanitärtechnik Eisenberg GmbH opened its new training centre in mid-December 2014 thus setting the course for intensifying the dialogue with the customers in the three-stage channel of distribution.

A modern training facility has been set up on a floor space of 360 sqm. For this purpose an adjacent building of 9,000 sqm of a former window manufacturer was bought and converted. 2,040 sqm of it were converted into a new works canteen and a new technical test lab.

Raimund Au, Managing Director of SANIT, explained why these investments were made: "The old training facilities had reached its capacity limits. The new training centre enables us to substantially extend our consultancy offerings for wholesalers, building services planning engineers and plumbers and heating installers. We can now inform our customers on the latest developments in the field better and more quickly“. In addition SANIT strengthens its position as part of the Aliaxis Group since Eisenberg is the competence centre for flushing systems within the globally operating group.

The training centre is split into three areas: training room, installation room and show floor. The training room with a capacity of up to 50 trainees is provided with state-of-the-art equipment. Raimund Au one more time: "Pre-wall installation products in particular are highly complex and in need of explanation. A case in point are  electrical/electronic WC and urinal control systems. It is therefore necessary to consolidate theoretical knowledge by practice-oriented applications." This is why great store was laid on functional models for the installation room to demonstrate how to handle the products in concrete situations. To put it in a nutshell: learning by doing.

A 150 sqm show floor adds to the training centre where SANIT puts its product range on display – from the surface-mounted flushing cisterns, state-of-the-art channel drains through to air admittance valves. The same holds true for the sanitary rooms in the reception area and the canteen where SANIT products were installed all over. Among them is INEO PLUS the latest pre-wall element was installed, which comes with deodorizer and illuminated push plates of the LIS series as a matter of course. 

The training centre was designed by Ingenieurbüro für Bau, Dipl.-Ing. B. Markloff (Eisenberg). The mechanical services were planned and installed by Bache - "Bäder, Wärme, Luft" based in Crossen, and the Dörfel-Kunert GmbH from Eisenberg.
