Aacer Flooring just wrapped up another successful 2014 Installation School. The 2-1/2 day school consisted of training on Aacer’s sports floor systems – both classroom and hands-on. The session ended with attendees taking a test to receive certification as an Aacer Installer. Aacer is happy to report that all attendees passed. Job well done!
A special thanks to Steve & Matt Stalker (Stalker Flooring), Mike Hoy (PoloPlaz), Pat Parker (Norton Abrasives), and Daniel Krupa (MFMA) for their contributions to this year’s school. Aacer couldn’t do it without your support!
Koko Thaw, Aacer’s International Manager, was among the 50 partners represented at the first FIBA (International Basketball Federation) Equipment & Venue Centre Partner’s meeting. The 1-1/2 day conference took place at the House of Basketball (Geneva, Switzerland) in mid-October.
Attendees represented all facets of basketball venues – from hardwood flooring to scoreboards and seating systems. Networking, discussions and presentations focused on hall designs, products, and FIBA’s new governance and competition systems.
