The 5,000-sq-ft training center officially opened in December and is located in the Fernco/S1E research and development building adjacent to the Fernco/S1E world headquarters. Prior to training and R&D, the building served as the Fernco machine shop before Fernco and S1E moved production and distribution to its new state-of-the-art Enterprise Center, also in Davison, in 2016.

FS1 Tech allows for hands-on training from experts in a controlled environment where the trainee can focus on fundamentals without distraction. Trainees receive training for all S1E products and can become certified in all PipePatch repair systems. Training is also available for Picote products, water management solutions, camera Inspection technology, lateral lining systems and more.
One of the first groups to make their way through training at the facility were led by Source One Environmental’s Canadian team led by sales managers Mike O’Toole and Anthony Pizzi. Taking part in the training were John Hodgson and John Sisson, from S1E’s local sales agency Armco Agencies Inc., and Greater Toronto Area contractors from Municipal Sewer Services and Plugged Piper.

S1E began in 2009 with a desire to provide innovative support to municipalities, contractors and plumbers in the water management and infrastructure rehabilitation markets. Founded on the idea that the industry needed inventive solutions, PipePatch was launched in the market as a No-Dig pipe repair system with other solutions to follow.
Marking its milestone 10-year anniversary S1E is planning special sales and events at Booth 3506 at the 2019 WWETT Show in Indianapolis and at the 2019 NASTT No-Dig Show in Chicago.
