CMCO University is off to a great start!

CMCO University

Last month Columbus McKinnon kicked off its inaugural session of CMCO University with great success. More than 15 distributor associates from across the country came to our  Niagara Training Center in Tonawanda, N.Y.,  to “Profit from Knowledge,” learning detailed information about our products and how to best sell and position them in the marketplace.

CMCO’s Niagara Training Center is one of the most comprehensive hoist, crane and rigging training centers in the country. With more than 40 hoists, including powered and manual hoists, as well as a variety of crane components and rigging products, attendees gained valuable experience operating the products. They were able to see the interior workings of the hoists, learn about their unique features and conduct hands-on product comparisons.

Testing out Products

Not only did the distributors learn about our products, they also had a chance to enjoy the unique sights and tastes of Buffalo, N.Y., including a trip to one of the Seven Wonders of the World – Niagara Falls; a visit to downtown Buffalo and First Niagara Center for a Buffalo Sabres hockey game; and various meals to experience Buffalo’s famous cuisine.

With the success of our first session, CMCO University classes are filling up fast. Keep an eye out for information on upcoming sessions – we’ll be scheduling throughout 2014.

  1. Tim,
    Thank you very much for your kind words. I will be sure to share them with the team. We appreciate you investing your time to learn more about our company and products.
    All the best,

  2. I attended this first program and it was exceptional. Being new to the industry, I learned quite a bit about the CM line of products and had the opportunity for hands on operation.

    What made this program extra special were the people! The CM staff were excellent hosts and made sure to cover the program content in-depth and covered all questions.

    Thank you for sponsoring this program and everyone’s efforts to make it what it is.

    -Tim Ragsdale
