2012 Open House a success!

October 11, 2012 proved to be a very busy, but enjoyable day at Metropolitan Industries as we hosted our 55-year Anniversary Celebration and Open House. The turnout was fabulous as we welcomed guests to tour our 100,000-square-foot facility and see our capabilities firsthand.

Product displays and demonstrations from our residential, commercial, municipal and HVAC divisions were located in our warehouse. Outside, we were fortunate enough to have a beautiful sunny day as we hosted a bags tournament, and tours of our Ion|StormPro® display trailer and MetroGreen energy-independent facility.

Following our Open House, we welcomed the Will County Governmental League, as it held its 2012 meeting.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended our Open House and the Will County Governmental League for choosing our facility for its recent meeting.

Below are photos taken throughout the day.

We held three individual one-hour training seminars; the first being “Water Harvesting Innovations” from 11 am to 12 pm.

Our “Retro-Fitting Your SCADA with the Latest Technologies” seminar was our busiest, with nearly 40 people in attendance.

Outside, we were lucky enough to have nice weather.
