Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US LLC (METUS), has announced BellSimons Cos., a wholesaler of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) equipment and METUS distributor, has opened a Mitsubishi Electric Authorized Training Center (MATC) in Waterville, ME. This is the first MATC operated by BellSimons.
The 1,400 sq ft facility offers Maine-based contractors the opportunity to gain hands-on training experience with the latest Mitsubishi Electric heat pump technology. Contractors can learn how to install and service innovative variable-capacity heat pump technology to deliver exceptional comfort experiences in New England homes.
At an Open House event, contractors, METUS and BellSimons representatives had the opportunity to tour the facility and learn about the comprehensive training and resources now available in their community. Training sessions began in the summer and are available monthly.
“We’re excited to open a Mitsubishi Electric Authorized Training Center in the state of Maine and our first at BellSimons,” said Brian Boland, Marketing Manager, BellSimons Cos. “This training facility will serve the very best and brightest of the HVAC industry who have embraced the heat pump technology to grow their business and better serve homeowners throughout Maine.”

“Although the trend in training continues to move to online platforms, METUS believes there is no substitute to a hands-on approach to technical learning,” said Brinnon Williams, Director, Residential Business, Northeast Business Unit, METUS. “This training center will put contractors in the position to learn and provide a superior level of service and support to their customers.”
