TRAINING INVESTMENTS:

Centro is unique in our commitment to training at all levels of the company. Each month we spend a day training our field sales and select support people at “Centro College.” We invite our major vendors to present their latest products and solutions so that our people are ready with new ideas for their customers.

Our inside staff are also trained in our branches by our vendors during the course of the year. We are also committed to customer training and have presented numerous product and process training sessions to our customers and engineering firms in our served geography. Our total commitment to training on an annual basis exceeds $100,000.

We believe we are one of few companies in our market to be designated by the US Department of Energy as an Industrial Energy Star provider which establishes our credentials as a solutions provider in the field of energy management/cost containment.
