San Jose, CA – May 15th, 2012 – The week of May 7th, Buckles-Smith Electric welcomed customers to training and open house events throughout Northern California.  At Buckles-Smith’s Silicon Valley headquarters, Rockwell Automation on Tour attracted over 40 attendees.   The Buckles-Smith Technical Team facilitated training sessions covering innovative technologies in networking, programming and safety applications.  Representing Northern California’s diverse customer base, MRO’s, OEM’s and contractors from water/waste water, pharmaceutical, data center, semiconductor, printing, and petrochemical industries attended the event.

Meanwhile, in Monterey County, Buckles-Smith’s key manufacturer representatives put on their aprons and whipped up their best chili recipes to compete in the 2012 Buckles-Smith Chili Cook-Off.  Not only did customers enjoy the best bowl of beans in the electrical industry, but the event also served as a one stop shop for customers to view the latest and greatest products of over 20 different manufacturers.  

The Salinas event is the first in the series of 2012 Buckles-Smith Chili Cook-Off’s.  Buckles-Smith will host a Cook-Off on June 7th at its San Jose branch and on August 2nd at its Livermore branch.
