Chattanooga, TN - Construction is now complete on the new Astec Training Center East. The new 5,460-square-foot building complements the existing Astec Training Center West by providing a space to display the Astec 1/8-scale plant models. Astec retains the industry distinction of establishing the standard for outstanding customer service and training. As evidence of the Astec commitment to training, with the completion of this new building, Astec has more than 23,000 square feet dedicated to training at its Chattanooga, TN manufacturing facility.
As they have since 2006, the 2012 sessions for the Astec Inc. Customer Schools have sold out. Because of the high demand for positions in its Customer Schools, Astec has created a waiting list for attendees who are not able to get into one of the school sessions. All total, Astec will host five sessions of schools and over 400 asphalt industry professionals will attend. The first session for the 2012 Advanced Customer Schools begins on January 9.
