“The DEKKER Gold Standard of Service is already the best in the industry,” Dekker said. “Our website is a significant enhancement of that commitment. It was designed to offer the same high level of performance as our pumps and systems.”

“And while our site presents content that covers the entire vacuum industry, I’m sure users will recognize the core value propositions of DEKKER – innovation, experience, knowledge and service. They are the foundation of the DEKKER business relationship.”


Vacuum University in the Works

DEKKER’s new Vacuum University is a unique, online education program for self-directed study. It was created, according to Dekker, “to fill the huge void that currently exists in understanding vacuum and vacuum technology.”

From entry-level courses to more in-depth courses, Vacuum University will enable the user to develop a basic or advanced understanding of vacuum and how it applies to their specific applications.”

Vacuum University will also offer proprietary training for DEKKER products and systems for registered users.
