Emerson’s industrial automation division said more than a hundred came to its Jan. 27-28 seminars on sustainable energy and cost savings.

“We were incredibly please by the high attendance to both of our seminars,” said Andy Nowak, Emerson’s HVAC industry manager. “The seminars were so popular that some attendees requested additional classes from the on-site trainers. The interest sends a clear message that the industry is moving in a more environmentally friendly direction.”

The North American Technician Excellence-approved sessions taught contractors how to help customers reduce energy, showed facility managers how to improve efficiency, and gave all attendees new information on smart phone applications and other new technologies.
