SJE recently hosted an international training with attendees from Latin America in an effort to give Spanish-speaking distributors the opportunity to learn about its products in a hands-on environment and to get a better perspective of its operations, the company announced.

“My favorite part of the training is the cultural exchange,” said William Gonzalez, design engineer, “Also, the customers sharing their field experiences with the SJE control panels and components.”

Attendees spent time at SJE’s Detroit Lakes, Minnesota headquarters, touring the facility and participating in product training. Topics covered included SJE Rhombus standard products, PRIMEX custom panels, VFDs and the PRIMEX Pump Watch Remote Monitoring System, and all sessions were held in Spanish.

“I hope that our distributors have obtained the greatest possible learning of everything that SJE Rhombus and PRIMEX manufacture,” said Marieangie Escobar, international customer service representative. “But above all, I hope they know that they can always count on our support.”

Participants also traveled to Minneapolis to tour SJE’s New Hope and Plymouth facilities and got the opportunity to attend a Twins baseball game and visit the Mall of America.

This year there were 18 attendees in total, traveling from many Latin American countries, including Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Peru, Guatemala, Colombia and Nicaragua.

SJE markets three brands — CSI Controls, PRIMEX and SJE Rhombus — that deliver pump controls for a wide range of residential, commercial, municipal and industrial applications. The company, based in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, does business globally from multiple locations across the United States and Asia. SJE is employee-owned and privately held. To learn more, visit
