Hundreds of building and construction professionals gathered at the Carpenters & Millwrights Training Center in the Houston suburb of Pasadena, Texas on April 3rd, 2018 to celebrate the grand opening of the facility.
The event included a taste of INSTALL training demonstrations including resilient flooring, custom cutting inserts and heat welding that will soon be a staple at the multi-million-dollar complex.
INSTALL Alliance Partners Armstrong Flooring, MAPEI and Tarkett donated several types of floor covering products and adhesives for the demonstrations, which showcased some of the organization’s curriculum in action.
“Visitors were very impressed with the facility and enthusiastic about the demonstrations,” said John T. McGrath, director of INSTALL.
