Sika Corp.'s Interior Finishing Business is now an International Standards and Training Alliance (INSTALL) partner.

According to the company, education and technical support are a part of the DNA of Sika.

Before signing on as an INSTALL Alliance Partner, Sika toured the Thomas C. Ober Carpenters Training Center in Hammonton, N.J., and the UBC International Training Center in Las Vegas. Sika also reviewed curriculum to verify the strength and scope of the Alliance Partner program.

"This is one of our strongest beliefs that education and training are key success factors in the flooring business. This partnership proves our commitment to raise industry standards. INSTALL can count on us for being involved as an Alliance Partner," said Sebastien Godard, vice president, marketing and interior finishing.
