Wichita, KS -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/16/2018 --C&B Equipment Service Technicians Tim Hayman and Matt Cowart have achieved their ASSE 6040 Certification for installation and maintenance of medical gas systems.
"These certifications are very important because service technicians are required by law to have credentials, guaranteeing the quality of service that is needed to work on the mechanical and gas systems within sensitive medical environments," said Tom Zowacki, Product Manager for Clean Air & Vac Systems at Gardner Denver.

"We're dedicated to investing in the training to support our growing healthcare industry by providing ASSE Certified professionals based right here in Kansas," said C&B Equipment President Dennis Noyes. "Tim and Matt are excited by the opportunity to advance professionally and our entire team is looking forward to serving our many medical customers and introducing ourselves to new customers."
