Flooring manufacturer Unilin sees great value in the annual North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) convention, taking place this week in Chicago. Unilin’s Quick-Step and Columbia brands show their full support for this gathering of key industry players by each serving as Gold Benefactor sponsors for the event. Also, Shane Calloway, Unilin’s vice president of North American independent distribution, is currently on NAFCD’s Board of Directors.
“The annual NAFCD convention is a very important time together, and if used correctly, can result in months of constructive discussion, joint brainstorming, and decision-making taking place in a few short days,” said Calloway. “There is no substitute for a face-to-face conversation. So much can take place when you have the opportunity to all gather around a table and develop your joint plans for success. Our distributors are our partners for success with our brands. Our Quick-Step and Columbia brands are solely brought to market through a network of the nation’s finest distributors. NAFCD is a valuable tool in our joint mission to keep the best and the brightest products and programs flowing to the consumer.”
