Tecumseh Products Establishes University

Originally published: 11.27.12 by HVACR Business Staff

Tecumseh Products Company has established Tecumseh University to better support to its network of authorized North American wholesalers with enhanced technical training.

The purpose-built classroom and lab facility at the site of Tecumseh’s main North American production hub in Tupelo, Mississippi will provide the training and education necessary for key wholesaler personnel to become Tecumseh Certified “Refrigeration Specialists,” the company said. 

Tecumseh Certified “Refrigeration Specialists” will play an essential role in Tecumseh’s partnership with its authorized wholesalers, focusing primarily on enriching their knowledge of refrigeration systems and extending that knowledge to the wholesale branch level, the company said.

The company expects that Tecumseh authorized wholesalers will expand and deepen their knowledge of refrigeration systems and ad will be able to correctly apply and troubleshoot compressors and condensing units. Certified “Refrigeration Specialist” will have a stronger foundation and be better equipped to support commercial refrigeration contractors.

“Pushing advanced technical knowledge deeper into the sales channel will help to increase the wholesaler’s penetration into the commercial refrigeration market,” said Jeff Fordeck, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Tecumseh North America. “These Refrigeration Specialists then become more valuable to their respective wholesale companies, helping to drive growth and profitability.”

Intermediate and Advanced courses are planned for 2013.
