We both know that your job is hard enough and your budget is limited. Trade shows are expensive, internet searches for real information are often confusing, misleading and respond in silence when you need a question answered. Fear not, Orange University® was built with you in mind!
Orange University is Eriez’ mobile training and education center, beautifully stuffed into a 38-foot Winnebago®. The concept and modular layout enable hands-on learning through a broad cross-section of Eriez equipment for a variety of industries, all scaled to a manageable size. The equipment layout is changed annually to refresh the program and offer you new learning experiences.
Our team of Eriez factory employees and field representatives tour all over North America helping to educate companies and provide viable solutions. In return, Eriez gets an education on your process needs as well, making for a synergistic approach of two-way learning that ultimately benefits your industry greatly. Orange University will help you pioneer developments to lead your company into the future.
Let us show you how we can provide you proven, cost-effective solutions right in your own parking lot. If we can’t fit something inside Orange University, our high-tech multimedia system with mobile broadband and multiple monitors, including a 42″ touch screen SmartBoard, fills the gaps. We spared no expense to create the incredible Orange University mobile experience. Let our team of Tour Pros show you how we can make your products better, safer and more cost-effective in production.
