Sales representatives from Abcon Industrial Products recently visited the Rupes BigFoot Academy Training Centre in Milan, Italy.

The Rupes BigFoot Academy is one of the most advanced training facilities in the industry, offering state-of-the-art equipment and training programs that cater to professionals at all skill levels.

The centre features a large showroom where Abcon reps had the chance to use the latest tools and equipment, including the new Rupes BigFoot polishers and consumables.

“It was an exciting opportunity for our reps to learn about the latest automotive industry trends, products, and Rupes’s new polishing and sanding solutions,” said Lyn Sharkey, sales and marketing manager at Abcon Industrial Products.

“Our reps were impressed with the high-quality standards at the training centre, and the level of expertise displayed by the trainers.

“They learned about the latest advancements in polishing techniques and participated in hands-on training sessions with various new products including the new Waffle and Microfibre Pads.

“The training sessions covered a wide range of topics, from polishing to advanced paint correction methods.”

Sharkey added that the tour of the Rupes museum and manufacturing plant was a definite highlight of the visit and provided valuable insights.

“Our sales reps learned about the history of the company and the importance of quality control seeing firsthand how each product is rigorously tested before it leaves the factory.

“Overall, the visit to the Rupes Training Centre was an invaluable experience for our sales reps.

“They gained new insights and techniques that will enable them to provide expert advice and reinforce our commitment to providing the highest quality automotive products to our customers,” she concluded.
