Dur-A-Flex Expands Applicator Training Program
East Hartford, Conn. (Jan. 7, 2013) – Flooring contractors looking to elevate their quality-focused project assessments and product installations via Dur-A-Flex’s Applicator Training Program (ATP) now have a second location to choose from. The company announced their west coast facility, located in Ontario, Calif. Is the latest location holding ATP sessions.
“Providing guidance and education on proper application techniques is our main focus when helping flooring contractors achieve their full jobsite potential. Our world class technical service department provided fantastic support for over 45 partners last year at our East Hartford, Conn. headquarters,” Patrick J. Meade, vice president of sales and technical service said. “In meeting the growing demand, we are now offering this second venue and additional program dates, making it even more convenient for our contractors to attend,” he concluded.
Dur-A-Flex’s California facility totals over 10,000 square feet, carries product inventory, floor samples and has a dedicated staff including sales representatives, technical support and customer service. The shipping and receiving department expedites product shipments to Asia Pacific and West Coast regional customers. Dedicated training space to house the ATP has since been added. The program will be facilitated by Dur-A-Flex’s western region technical and operations manager Marcus Gray. Gray has been with the company for close to 20 years.
Interested contractors will have an opportunity to sample the ATP’s benefits during the World of Concrete, Feb. 5 – 8, 2013. Dur-A-Flex will be showcasing the training program in their outdoor booth, #040844. For those who are not able to attend the much anticipated international construction tradeshow in Las Vegas, additional information about the ATP can be obtained by contacting their regional sales representative.
