ST-JÉRÔME, QC, Sept. 18, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Mr Mario Belisle, founder and President Riobel, a company that designs, manufactures and distributes faucetry products throughout North America, is proud to announce the creation of the Riobel Academy. In fact, significant expansion work is currently underway at the company's St-Jérôme headquarters.
Canada's first faucetry academy will ensure that Riobel products demonstrate their effectiveness and performance by recreating realistic conditions in a laboratory environment. Its mission will be to inform and teach everything there is to know about the mechanics and operation of faucets. Training will be adapted to the attending stakeholders: plumbing students, plumbers, designers, sales associates, etc. As the sole Canadian learning institution for faucet-related knowledge, the Riobel Academy promises to be the ultimate authoritative reference on faucetry.
The Riobel Academy will occupy 9,000 square feet, complete with a state-of-the-art laboratory, a vast and fully-functional showroom, an interactive classroom for 30 participants as well as the company's brand new management offices. When all is finished, Riobel's St-Jérôme facilities will total 74,000 square feet.
The grand opening of the Riobel Academy is scheduled for April 2014.
Riobel products are distributed throughout North America. A dedicated team of more than 125 employees and sales representatives works hand-in-hand to maintain the reputation for excellence that Riobel has been nurturing since 1995.
