Every year ECOTECH runs training events for ECOTECH distributors in the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. In May 2017, ECOTECH held the European training event at the ACOEM Group’s headquarters in Lyon, France.The three-day training event conducted by ECOTECH’s Senior Technical Specialist Rhys Evans, is tailored to the needs of ECOTECH distributors, international customer technicians and field service staff. The training is a combination of theoretical and practical sessions, giving participants hands-on experience trouble-shooting simulated activities using ECOTECH gas analysers and software.
Training attendees included technical and support staff from major ECOTECH European distributors including ECM Austria, ECM Slovakia, ECM Ukraine, Matt Monitors, Sartec, Envilyse, European Tech Serv (ETS) Belgium and Techno Instruments.
Building knowledge, networks and synergies
In addition to ECOTECH instrumentation training, the European participants had the opportunity to also learn about noise and vibration monitoring products from 01dB through an informative presentation by Stéphane Bloquet, 01dB’s Business Unit Director (pictured above first from left).
With announcement of the merger between the ACOEM Group and ECOTECH in February 2017, ECOTECH and 01dB became stablemates in the newly formed “Environment” business unit of the ACOEM Group. Different but complementary product and service offerings from 01dB and ECOTECH empower each company and their respective distributors to deliver an integrated single offering for noise and environmental monitoring to new and existing clients.
“Working together creates synergies for our products and networks,” said Stéphane. “It was fantastic to show that this merger between ECOTECH and ACOEM makes sense. I also had the opportunity to spend time with Rhys and get to know him on both a professional and personal level. Moments like these are important for the future 01dB and ECOTECH we want to build together.”
With dozens of instruments to service for their clientele, it’s essential that distributors stay up to date with ECOTECH technological changes and product developments. Focusing on core product lines, these training sessions are an invaluable tool for consolidating international relationships and providing ongoing support to ECOTECH’s distribution partners.
Training participant Steven Lambrecht, Service Engineer from ETS NV, Belgium had this to say after three days training, “Rhys did a great job and now it’s time for me to get my hands dirty!”
