MARIETTA, GA — Noritz America recently opened a new showroom and contractor-training facility in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, with the goal of providing hands-on instruction on the benefits of tankless water heating for plumbing, mechanical and HVAC trades people, as well as their residential and commercial customers.
The newly renovated, 1,650-square-foot showcase is part of Noritz’s 13,000-square-foot distribution center in Marietta that serves as a logistical hub for the Southeastern United States. “The design and layout of our new product showroom is technically focused to quickly familiarize a visitor with the critical details of tankless water heating technology,” says branch manager Adam Brown. “This approach will not only support ‘Noritz University,’ our contractor school that offers monthly training sessions; but it will also help educate homeowners and commercial end users looking to learn how tankless works, where it can be installed, and whether they need help from one of our factory-qualified installers.”
The presentation consists of a series of vignettes showing true-to-life, mock-ups of tankless installations in a variety of contexts. Additional displays include a high-efficiency condensing tankless water heater, as well as a hydro-air install featuring a tankless unit with an air handler. Capsule presentations of various residential and commercial case studies are displayed in the form of wall posters and banners around the facility. An Advanced Technical Area provides Noritz technical staff with multiple workstations where they can inspect and service tankless units.
