3 New Metabo Mobile Safety Training/Job-site Event Trailers

The multi-purpose trailers are completely wrapped in graphics and feature high definition TVs and sound systems. They are fully outfitted, and in a matter of minutes can be ready to showcase Metabo's range of products at open houses, special events, local and regional trade shows, job-sites and training centers.

The trailer will be able to utilize on-site electric power or create its own with a propane powered generator,  so it can be used inside or anywhere where power is inaccessible.

“Last year we introduced one trailer and the demand for Metabo product training and safety education was so well received, we expanded this year to three trailers to effectively cover more areas of the US more readily," said Larry Pecht, National End User Account Manager. 

Metabo’s S.E.A.L. (Safety, Education, Application, and Leadership) Team, a highly experienced team of 'Safety Experts', are taking the trailers on the road to visit industrial work sites, unions and other training facilities.

If you are interested in scheduling Metabo’s trailer for a free onsite visit or training session, please contact Larry Pecht at lpecht@metabousa.com.
