The 44,000-square-foot property is a first for Bobcat as its sole focus is training. The facility includes technical training rooms, hands-on shop space, a large classroom-style auditorium, as well as a full warehouse area for equipment storage and showroom space.
“The new Bobcat training center addresses our need for additional training capacity,” says Mike Ballweber, Doosan Bobcat North America president. “It also affirms our dedication to all dealers by providing a convenient location to service them. We look forward to being part of Aurora and the greater Denver community.”
The facility is packed to the brim with technology and state-of-the-art classrooms. Plus, the auditorium and some of the classrooms at the facility actually have bay doors in them, allowing Bobcat equipment to be driven in for hands-on learning. Through instruction, simulation and interactive labs, Bobcat says the new facility provides specialized skills training such as troubleshooting and diagnostics, new technician onboarding, selling skills and more.
“As our equipment offers more features and becomes more advanced, it’s important that we offer the training needed to support new technologies and ensure that the full potential of each piece of equipment is being utilized,” says Ballweber.
Bobcat plans to begin utilizing the new space immediately to further develop its extensive dealer training program, providing the company the ability to respond quickly to evolving industry demands and trends.
“As a company, we are dedicated to investing time and resources to make it easier for our dealers to learn how to use and maintain their Bobcat compact equipment,” Ballweber says. “We believe this investment will provide our company with the best trained dealer network and, in turn, more productive customers.”
