Gardner Denver’s Pump University is in high demand and growing. We’re adding more trainers and training tools to the program to keep up with customer’s requests for more sessions. Gardner Denver trainer Kyle Cordell says this past year’s growth is exciting.
“I’m not surprised at all, but by the same token, I am,” says Cordell. “I knew we were going to be offering a great program and thought customers would appreciate it, but I’m also surprised to see how quickly the program has taken off. It’s fun to see it take form.”
Pump University is a hands-on training class for the SGWS and TLS-10 fluid ends. The class is taught at a customer’s location with 10-12 of their employees per session. Pump University allows employees to hone their craft by teaching them proper assembly and maintenance of a fluid end. Students will learn how to properly install parts and how to identify worn parts. The program’s goal is to help Gardner Denver’s customers get the longest life out of their pumps and fluid ends. Customer feedback is proving the program is working.
“Thanks Kyle, I really appreciate your taking time to teach us the right way this year and clarifying the misunderstandings as well. We are starting to get better life as a result. I have a packing team that is dedicated to that task now and really pleased overall.”
“I have been working in this industry for 15 years and no one has taken the time to correctly pack a pump. I have been doing it wrong for so long. Thank you for showing me the right way.”
“You spent three days on our yard and answered any questions we had. No one has done that for us yet. Thank you for the time. Can we set up a quarterly training?”
Many customers are scheduling recurring monthly or quarterly classes. As new employees are hired, companies want to make sure they understand proper fluid end care from the first day. In the end, this saves customers time and money. A longer-lasting pump contributes to a company’s uptime.
The cost of Pump University is minimal, and Gardner Denver offers rebates on parts, tools and fluid ends to help cover the expense. The classes include hands-on presentation, manuals, lunch and certification.
During this next year, Pump University will expand to the drilling side. Plus, an exciting 3D interactive model will be launched. Stay tuned for more information.
