Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Posted 04/11/2014VERNON HILLS, Ill. - In an effort to make training convenient for its customers throughout North America, Mitsubishi Electric Automation has opened a Certified Training Center at Gibson Engineering in Norwood, Mass.

“The opening of this new training center will make it much more efficient for our customers in the Northeast to get the training they need,” said Mark Werthman, director, technical support group, Mitsubishi Electric Automation. “We have a high concentration of customers in that area of the U.S., so we’re pleased to be able to offer them a more localized training facility.”
Werthman explained that the new training facility is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to provide superior automation technology and support to its customers. “We not only want to provide the most technologically advanced automation products and solutions. It’s also important that plant managers, engineering managers and others who operate our equipment be able to effectively implement and maintain it in order to help their organizations maximize productivity and stay competitive,” he added.
