To serve our customers better we needed more space. So in spring of 2019 we took back the part of our building that we were renting out, and expanded and upgraded our warehouse, dispatch center, customer service center, accounting department and docks. We also upgraded our computer, phone and text messaging systems to communicate with our customers better and in the manner that they preferred to communicate.
Part of this transformation included the creation of Anthony University. We expanded our plumbing and HVAC training labs, apprenticeship programs and training curriculum to create a comprehensive vocational college offering state of the art higher education in Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Drain Remediation. Students at Anthony University are learning the math, chemistry, physics, leadership skills and modern HVAC and plumbing methodologies and diagnostic technology needed to make them fully equipped to provide you with the best service possible.
Not only is Anthony University allowing us to serve more homeowners better and faster, but it is also supplying our region with skilled tradespeople at a time when individuals experienced in skilled trades in the U.S. are in short supply. Graduates of Anthony University earn lifelong technical trades and leadership skills that are allowing them to earn a good living and enhance the economic prosperity of our area. And even veteran plumbers and HVAC technicians are coming to Anthony University to hone their skills and update their technical knowledge to make them better able to serve our homeowners’ changing needs.
We at Anthony Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric made the commitment to train our own HVAC technicians, plumbers and drain remediation specialists through our apprenticeship programs that we call Anthony University. Right now there is a shortage of over 100,000 skilled tradespeople in the United States. By training our own tradespeople, we ensure that our homeowners will always receive the finest service from the most educated and talented technicians possible.
