This NAEC approved 4.0 hour CET training class provided by Billy Shrum, Maxton’s technical manager, keeps elevator professionals current and proficient with Maxton valves and maximizing hydraulic elevator performance.
“I’ve been in the elevator industry for 27 years, and I learned a lot today. The hands on TA4M elevator simulator really helped us see how the adjustments operate the elevator. I highly recommend this training,” said Erik Bleyle.
Maintaining proper elevator performance increases the longevity of the elevator while reducing costs, energy usage, and keeping customers happy.
