Publix Service Seminar & Training at PTR’s Plant City Facility.

  • Publix Service Seminar & Training at PTR’s Plant City Facility.

    On Tuesday, June 18th, PTR Baler and Compactor held a service seminar with Publix to train their facilities staff on PTR’s machinery. Publix, recognized as one of Fortune’s most admired companies since 1994, has over 1,000 stores that utilize PTR equipment. 

    At PTR’s factory in Plant City, Florida, President & CEO Mike Savage, Technical Support Specialist Joe Merlino, Director of Sales for the Southeast Region Fred Freer and Director of Service Business Development John Rizzo administered the educational course. The experience was very hands-on in teaching the Publix team members how to safely operate the balers and compactors, as well as, the hydraulic and electrical components within the machines.

    As the largest employee-owned grocery chain in the United States, Publix plans to carryout this program to additional Publix regions with the aid of PTR. The seminar emphasized the two companies coming together to strengthen and further their partnership. Publix and PTR have carried out business together for over twenty-five years and continue to strive in the building of their relationship.
