Quality Plumbing Services Inc. Practices What They Preach Regarding Training

October 17, 2011 · No Comments

We continue our commitment to ongoing education by having our technicians attend a training session at Bradford White Corporation. Bradford White, one of America's largest and oldest water heater manufacturers, is one of the top brands available on the market today.


The plumbers from Quality Plumbing Services spent three days at Bradford White's 800,000 square foot manufacturing facility located in the heartland of America … Middleville, Michigan. They received training on the ultra high efficiency EF Series commercial water heaters and the commercial “D” series model water heaters. The Icon controller used for the residential flammable vapor ignition resistant model water heater was also among the topics covered. In addition to Q&A sessions, discussions on basic installations and sizing of water heaters, the plumbers received valuable hands on training experience by trouble shooting and making repairs on working models in a laboratory setting.


The training concluded with a tour of the Bradford White manufacturing facility. Attendees saw the entire water heater manufacturing process. First, was the fabrication of the water heater tank, jacket and all the various water heater controls. They saw the rigorous inspection and testing process that each water heater undergoes. They toured the residential and commercial water heater assembly lines, where they learned how a water heater is assembled from the beginning, to the labeling and packing process. The tour ended with a look at the Bradford White warehouse and distribution center.


It was a very worthwhile trip!
