Training and development
Theory is good – but practice is better.

“Tell me, and I will forget.
Show me, and I may remember.
Involve me, and I will understand.”
Confucius (c. 500 BC)
Theory is good – but practice is better. This is one of the reasons why Hawle established a training center that is used to provide education and development opportunities. At the training center, customers can test and try out Hawle products, seeing for themselves just how easy to operate and reliable they are at different pressure ratings. We have also created our own demonstration area where we can present the possible uses for our products.
Our customers and partners can take a close look at a wide range of connection technologies – such as flanges, fittings, System 2000 or multi-purpose couplings – as well as combinations with all manner of pipe materials. Hawle also has a large proportion of its more than 250 types of service connection line on show. Customer proximity is a core value at Hawle, which is why our employees are happy to pass their knowledge on to customers. In the assembly area, fitters and installers hone their skills in a wide range of procedures and in working with pipelines under pressure. Experienced trainers oversee the sessions and offer tips on assembly and maintenance. The Hawle lab technicians can also built test set-ups according to customer requirements on request.
A particular advantage of the training schemes offered is their proximity to the production plant, which facilitates a close look at all the fine details of the products. This gives participants a clear idea of the workmanship involved, as well as providing them with practice-oriented background information on the production methods used.

Show buses on tour
Show buses have a long tradition at Hawle. As far back as the 1960s, Hawle employees would hit the road to present products to their customers. And the tradition continues to this day. Hawle show buses are on the move all year round, presenting gate valves, combi valves, butterfly valves, service valves, extension spindles, hydrants, pipe connections, fittings, multi-purpose couplings, control valves and accessories.
With their extensive equipment, the show buses provide trade partners and fitters with a mobile alternative. Out in the field, individual training sessions are organized in the show bus that provide an active insight into the world of Hawle products. To book the show bus, please contact your sales partner.
