Construction on the new training facility, which is located at Leybold’s North America office in Export, Pennsylvania, started in December. Walls were stripped to the studs and completely rebuilt, along with new flooring, furniture and fixtures. The new training facility will comfortably accommodate more than 20 students.
"We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new training facility for Leybold U," says Russell Bateman, Leybold Service Sales Development Manager. "Our new training space will provide our students with an ideal learning environment, adding more value to the training experience."
The Leybold U training program provides professionals with the fundamentals of vacuum science. The three-day course combines classroom instruction with lab experiments and hands-on learning. Participants will also learn principles about the company’s entire vacuum pump lineup, including tips, tricks, and maintenance on all Leybold equipment.
