Home News Schönox hosts Hands ÖN training session event

Hands ÖNFlorence and Birmingham, Ala.—Customers and colleagues attending a recent Schönox Hands ÖN training session at the company’s Florence Support Center split their week between learning the speed and performance characteristics of both Schönox and Porsche, according to the company.

“The Porsche Track Experience was one of the best times of my life,” said Les Lippert, president, Lippert Flooring and Tile. “It was a great opportunity to meet more of the Schönox and Küberit team and see their facilities.”

Hosted by Schönox, Küberit USA, Trissl Sports Cars and TMT America, the week-long Schönox Hands ÖN event’s pace was set from the beginning with guests picked up at the airport in a series of Porsche Macans and Cayennes. Schönox Hands ÖN training followed, introducing attendees to Need for Speed products and strategies. Küberit USA staff said it shared the company’s rapidly-growing line of floor and wall profiles, providing solutions for all projects and floor coverings.

The training later moved from the Schönox Support Center to Barber Motorsports Park, home of the US Driving School of Porsche. “It was a fantastic event, showcasing outstanding technologies in the hands of so many leaders in the flooring industry,” said Mike Penney, senior vice president sales, Schönox HPS.

The Schönox Florence Support Center hosts flooring contractors, installers, distributors and specifiers on a weekly basis, providing comprehensive training covering the uses, benefits, installation details and project strategies of the entire Schönox subfloor series, according to the company. Trissl Sports Cars, a division of TMT America, said it hosts several events at Barber Motorsports Park and at the Trissl Sports Car facility each year. “There’s little doubt that I want a Porsche now, but what made me happiest was the opportunity to have these experiences with my father (Dan Ulfig),” said Garrett Ulfig, southwest director, Master Craft Floors.
