Ten employees from the Beltsville, MD; Chesapeake, VA; Knoxville, TN; Wilmington, NC; Greensboro, NC; and Charleston, SC branches of Horizon Forest Products and Long Floor attended a two-day product training session on October 25 and 26.

Janet Sullivan, Craig Dupra, and Brett Butler from Lenmar, Jim Schumacher from 3M, Don Jewell from Timbermate, and Charlie Whisenhunt from Lagler presented on Machines (belt versus drum, edgers, buffer, and trio), Abrasives (grit sequence, safety, and between coat abrasion), Filler (where and when to use, trowel fill, and spot fill), and Finishes (new Lenmar finishes, stain, sealers, and finishes). Attendees were also trained on how to handle product complaints, and given a Lenmar plant tour at the end of the training session.

Attending from Horizon Forest Products were John Armfield (Knoxville), Paul Brown and JD Bulla (Wilmington), Andy Owens (Greensboro), and John Shafer and Wes Vicars (Charleston). Long Floor attendees were Nicole Will (Chesapeake), and Paul Wimer, Maria Ramos, and Christie Pearson (Beltsville).

Beltsville Branch Manager, Paul Wimer, said that attending the Lenmar School will ultimately benefit Horizon Forest Products and Long Floor customers. “VOC compliancy is a very big issue at the moment,” explains Wimer. “By attending this school, our staff will now have a better working knowledge of Lenmar's VOC compliant offerings and how to apply them, which will enable us to better serve our customers.”
