AAMCO breaks ground for Coweta training center

AAMCO, the world’s largest chain of transmission specialists and leader in total car care, officially broke ground in Coweta County in Shenandoah Industrial Park for AAMCO University, commencing the building of the state-of-the-art training facility.

AAMCO President and Chief Executive Officer Brett Ponton was onsite for the groundbreaking on Aug. 5.

“We are thrilled to officially begin development on AAMCO University,” said Ponton. “The creation of the new training facility supports our business model to deliver the best possible customer experience through our highly trained team of experts.”

The center in the industrial park off Bullsboro Drive at I-85 is scheduled to open in January 2015. It will provide AAMCO technicians, managers and franchisees with service training through a best-in-class curriculum within its high-tech training facility and repair center. The school will train employees to be in a position to continually deliver quality service. It will also provide guidance to a successful career path at AAMCO.

“Another great benefit of AAMCO University is that it offers prospective AAMCO franchisees a first look at the operation and the company’s commitment to best practices from an owner’s view,” said Mike Ganjei, an AAMCO franchise owner and president of the National AAMCO Dealers Association.

The educational facility will offer both lecture and hands-on technical instruction for up to 60 people at a time with a theater-style classroom and a simulated repair shop showcasing a real-life learning environment. A call center will field technical and sales questions.

The training facility is next door to AAMCO partner Global Powertrain Systems and its factory, which houses the production of remanufactured transmissions.

AAMCO, based in Horsham, Pa., has more than 700 automotive centers throughout the United States and Canada. Established in 1962, AAMCO centers are proud to have served more than 45 million drivers.
