Abrasive Technology to Develop Learning Center (posted 10/13/08)

Abrasive Technology recently announced the development of a Learning Center at its world headquarters in Lewis Center, Ohio. The 8000-square-foot center will house educational, meeting and fitness areas, and will also be the home to the company’s Learning Culture Communities of Practice.

“The Learning Center was initiated to create an environment to house the necessary tools to facilitate ongoing training, learning and development for all our associates,” said Tanya Patrella, leadership. “The development of our Learning Center is completely associate-driven. It was conceptualized by and is being led by a team of associates from all areas of our facility.”

Key components of the Learning Center include:
  • An auditorium/classroom space that can accommodate training and development gatherings of up to 250 associates. The space will feature movable walls and state-of-the-art audio visual amenities, including a retractable video screen, video conferencing, video recording, sound system, built-in projector and computers.
  • A library that will house both print and web-based learning materials. The library will feature computer terminals/workstations for individualized on-line learning and training, as well as sofas and soft chairs for casual, small group meetings.
  • A fitness area to include treadmills, elliptical machines, stationary bikes, and mats where fitness and yoga classes can be held.
