Attendees at the recent Installer Day in Wisconsin.

More than 100 installers, assistants and remodelers recently attended a special Installer Day hosted by ProSource of Milwaukee and Franklin, Wis. Attendees listened to a presentation about the importance of Certified Floorcovering Installer (CFI) certification, and attended seminars on Carpet Seams 101 (led by Tony Buckhardt, CCS/CFI), Carpet 101 (taught by Jim Witmer, Shaw), Mohawk Hard Surfaces’ latest products (led by Mohawk’s Joel Cartee) and Sobella & LVT Installation (taught by Bill Wiese, Mannington). Kirk Grossnickel of Bostik was also on-hand to field questions.

“Many of the installers found this day to be the perfect opportunity to explore additional areas of potential interest in floor covering installation other than in their own areas of expertise,” said Jeff Bernstein, vp operations, ProSource.

Along with ProSource, the event was sponsored by Shaw, Mohawk, Mannington, Bostik, Jaeckle, CCS and the CFI.
