Jane Winters and Roger Farabee
Dallas — Unilin’s Jane Winters recently was named “NALFA Member of the Year,” an award given in recognition of “exceptional contributions to the laminate flooring industry”.
“Jane Winters is one of those individuals who gives her all to each of her projects,” said Roger Farabee, senior vice president of marketing for Unilin and Winters’ manager. “She cares about her work and the contributions she can make in her role as Unilin’s warranty claims manager. She is just as conscientious in her volunteer role as education committee chairman for NALFA.”
In her volunteer role with North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA), Winters has served as education committee chairman for the past three years. Her primary mission was to lead creation of different types of training to increase knowledge of the laminate flooring industry among consumers, retailers, distributors, and others in the home and shelter industry.
Winters was instrumental in the creation of the Inspector Certification training program. This training curriculum helps inspectors gain a better understanding of everything about laminate flooring from the construction of planks, proper installation, care, maintenance, warranty, and claims issues to the unique features and benefits of an installed laminate floor within both residential and commercial applications.
