The International Standards & Training Alliance (INSTALL) has added five new partner companies to its ranks.

Ecore Commercial Flooring, Instafloor, Metroflor, Koster American and Loba-Wakol are the newest partner companies.

INSTALL partners participate in ongoing curriculum reviews by designating technical and/or educational representatives to work with INSTALL instructors to revise and refine the INSTALL curriculum. According to the organization, this ensures that future floor covering professionals are trained according to the needs of today’s marketplace. This partnership further ensures that INSTALL professionals are equipped with the skills that are necessary to install floor covering products properly and efficiently.

INSTALL pursues a mission to forward the North American floor covering industry, demonstrating commitment to quality installations and enhancing the industry’s reputation by offering a comprehensive training and certification program for its floor covering installers and a marketing program for its alliance members. Additionally, INSTALL offers an added value warranty on labor provided by INSTALL Certified Contractors.
