Customer Education


Why do we offer customer education classes?

"To be the best, as determined by our customers" is the cornerstone of our mission statement. And because you are a part of ABB Motors and Mechanical Inc., we want to help you be the best also. We are proud to offer a series of intensive education workshops designed to be more than passive seminars. Workbooks, question and answer sessions, and other structured activities assure participant interaction and involvement. Homework and hands-on training supplement these true learning experiences that promise to be beneficial in the field.
