Sunstate Equipment Opens New Timothy J Meenk Training Center
Named in honor of former Parts and Service Director Tim Meenk, the new training facility brings his vision for a truly unique mentor-based training program to fruition.
Meenk was a long-time team member who joined Sunstate in 1989 as an Apprentice Small Engine Mechanic. He was a fundamental part of developing Sunstate’s service department, processes, and one-of-a-kind Apprentice Mechanic Training Program. Meenk lost his battle with cancer in 2020, shortly after seeing the first mockups of the building with his name on the front.
“We could see no better fitting tribute than to honor his memory in this way. Tim embodied mentorship and leading through teaching—which is at the very center of what this facility represents,” Watts said.
Sunstate’s expanded Service Center campus in Phoenix now boasts two custom-designed buildings for its administrative and support services.
Purpose-built Timothy J Meenk Training Center will host onsite career growth development courses for Sunstate team members.
