Develon, formerly Doosan Construction Equipment, has opened a new training centre for the European market just outside of Nantes, France.

The centre, which is the first the company has opened in Europe, comes as Develon aims to provide dedicated conditions to update and develop the knowledge and skills of dealer personnel and the company’s service technicians and demonstrators throughout Europe.

It is located in the chateaux region of the Loire Valley near Nantes and consists of a main building with several areas that can be set up for training.

It also comes with offices, workshops for service training and a 3000m² outdoor area which is used for try outs of machines from Develon and competitor machines.

Activities at the centre include dealer service and product training, internal ‘Train The Trainer’ sessions, virtual classrooms, training development (including video tutorials and other tools) and future events to include promotion of Develon in schools.

Patrice Pesnot, head of training at Develon in Europe, said the centre aims to enhance dealer and staff performance with the right training, support and tools; “The new Training Centre is intended to provide an environment to allow participants to concentrate on Develon products, allowing them to remove themselves from their daily work and focus entirely on the training activities.

“Another aspect of the Training Centre is to provide a secure and safe environment with excellent conditions for training, in a fully equipped area that demonstrates the professionalism of Develon, allowing testing of machines both in the workshop but also in the working conditions in the outside demonstration area.”

IRN was told that the company will open a second training centre in Germany later this year.
