Houston-based Cooper Industries recently announced the grand opening of the Cooper Technology Center. The 35,000-square-foot facility features an auditorium, conference room, and multiple training rooms designed to help facilitate industry-specific education and provide hands-on demonstration of the entire line of industrial products the company offers.

In addition, a replica of an industrial plant helps to complete the learning environment with more than 250 of Cooper’s industrial offerings installed as they would appear in a refinery. Based on the current schedule and bookings to-date, several thousand people are expected to use the facility each year.
