Dealers for KPI-JCI and Astec Screens visited the production site in Yankton for in-depth training
Astec subsidiaries Astec Screens and KPI-JCI have been working together to improve knowledge within their dealer network through use of in-depth training programmes. Both US-based and international dealers attended the event at the companies' manufacturing base in Yankton, South Dakota.
Training sessions included presentations on operation and application for jaw crushers and vibrating feeders, shop floor training on installation and assembly, plant tours and safety education. Terry Haas, field service representative and training coordinator at Kolberg-Pioneer, said the training sessions are critical for dealers who want to stay informed on best equipment practices.
Dealers should take advantage of these opportunities because it allows them to stay current on training and get a hands-on opportunity to learn about installation and operation of equipment from those who know it best," Haas said. "PRO Service Training sessions are also a great way to meet and build relationships with our service personnel who go out into the field."
