New training academy and showroom

Hörmann UK has launched its new training academy.

Based at its headquarters in Coalville, Leicester, the new facility offers comprehensive training that reflects the commitment of its German counterpart, which places significant importance on the learning process.

Offering a diverse range of training for all products across its domestic and industrial portfolios, the training is supported by its new showroom.

With a range of seminars available, the basic sales and product training is designed to give the attendees confidence in every aspect of Hörmann, providing an introduction into all aspects of the industrial and domestic products ranges. These sessions are specifically designed for Hörmann partners and their employees who wish to receive training on their knowledge of the doors and operators range. The seminar also provides an overview of installation requirements, along with in-depth explanations of each door’s unique features, benefits and key selling points.

Hörmann is also offering domestic fitter training, where professionals will learn how to fit Canopy, Retractable, RollMatic and Sectional doors on Z spring and N track. The seminars are hosted as two-day courses with an overnight stay and evening meal free of charge, and can be modified, depending on the professional’s individual requirements.

The industrial training provides professionals with all the necessary information they require to install Hörmann UK’s range of High Speed Curtain Doors, High Speed Sectional Doors, Sectional Doors and Roller Shutters. It is also supported by additional training on the servicing, maintenance and fault finding of the above products, along with Hörmann UK’s Dock Levellers.

Individuals will also receive training on the key features and benefits offered by each of the ranges, enabling professionals to promote the key features to potential and existing customers.

Wolfgang Gorner, managing director of Hörmann UK, said: “Here at Hörmann UK we place significant importance on not only the quality of our products, but the quality of our sales, installation and servicing. This is why we have launched our new training academy to provide professionals with hands-on experience of how to correctly install, service and maintain our market leading solutions.

“We work hard to maintain a strong relationship with our nationwide team of distributors and installers to ensure the end customer receives a first-class finish. The opening of our latest academy and showroom will enable us to further develop this, ensuring we offer the UK industrial and domestic market the highest standard in training, advice and high quality products.”
