Ferris State University HVACR program receives donation from Marathon International
December 17 2014- Marathon International has awarded an equipment donation to the Ferris State University Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVACR) Program. Marathon International is the exclusive distributor of Baxi heating solutions in North America. Baxi makes 4,000 wall hung products a day for export to 70 countries. Baxi products are certified by Canadian Standards Association, American Society of Mechanical Engineers and Energy Star.
Marathon International's Regional Sales Representative Ed Bartucci is eager to help with a $2,000 equipment donation that consist of a Luna 3 Comfort 310 FI and Luna Duo-Tec 40GA to support the university's HVACR programming needs. The installation of lab equipment enables a student to work with the most up-to-date technology.
Joe Compton, HVACR Associate Professor comments, "It's very important that we keep the most current technology in the Granger laboratories as students are trained to troubleshoot on multiple types of units. Marathon International wants to hire Ferris HVACR students due to that exposure", adding, "Marathon International understands the HVACR program mission of providing a quality education and training that emphasizes practical hands-on skills to solve problems."
Doug Zentz, Associate Professor and HVACR program Coordinator agrees, "The donation was made in recognition of the long-term, strong relationship between Marathon International and the HVACR programs which keep the students abreast of the newest in cutting edge technologies. Employers of our graduates continue to be impressed with the student knowledge as a result of this type of continuing support. On behalf of the Ferris HVACR family, I want to thank Ed and Marathon International for the continued support."
