Brand new Yacht Paint Application Center opens in Florida

Awlgrip has recently opened its third Yacht Paint Application Center, the latest located in Cocoa Beach, Florida, USA. The new Center will run training courses on Awlgrip products and systems, covering a wide range of areas within these, such as achieving the finest finish through to best practices on preparation and application, health and safety guidance in all aspects of application, and Personal Protective Equipment requirements. There will also be custom programmes tailored to individual requirements.

Awlgrip is committed to investing in training and we are further expanding on the success of the previous facility (in New Jersey, North America) with this newly opened, dedicated training Center in Florida. The 2500 sq ft training Center includes state-of-the-art application equipment and specially designed areas for theory and practical training, with breakout area, classroom and large application booth.

Awlgrip also has Yacht Paint Application Centers in Southampton, United Kingdom and Viareggio, Italy; we are currently planning to open a Center on the East Coast of Australia, scheduled for the latter part of 2010.

The Awlgrip training courses are available for all customers, such as applicators, paint foremen, new project managers, specifiers and yards, no matter what their role is within the industry. In instances when customers require training for specific projects, Awlgrip experts also provide hands-on technical training and support on-site at the customer’s premises.

The new Center in Florida recently held initial applicator and distributor sales training courses, which were headed by Technical Field Support Representative, Bob Lalonde.

Due to the success of these trials, numerous courses are already scheduled. Below lists the current dates for the 2-day Awlgrip Applicator Training courses at the Yacht Paint Application Center in Florida:
