December 19, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
BELTSVILLE, MD – Long Floor, a leading distributor of prefinished and unfinished hardwood flooring, equipment, and sundry products, held a product training seminar at their Beltsville location on November 13th. Presenting to the group were Scott Lynch from Absolute Coatings, Jeremy Harrison from Norton Abrasives, and James Tasikas from Galaxy.

During the three-hour presentation, attendees reviewed Galaxy’s sanders and learned about the functionality of Galaxy’s sanding equipment, they were shown a better application method for Absolute Coatings’ 350 VOC Poly, and they learned about the longevity of Norton’s Red Heat sandpaper versus other brands. Long Floor’s Beltsville Sales Manager, Paul Wimer, says that it’s product demonstrations such as this that enable his team to provide better customer service through increased product knowledge.

“It’s one thing for our team members to read how to use a product or a piece of equipment,” says Wimer. “It’s another when you have an actual vendor representative here, showing you exactly how the product was designed to work and what you need to do to ensure maximize performance. Our team members really look forward to these opportunities and appreciate how much more effectively they’re able to represent our product line and assist our customers.”
