F Ball hosts training day for social media users
F BALL & CO has hosted a specially organised training day for social media users who interact with the company on Facebook and Twitter.
As well as enjoying the exclusive training day at F Ball’s state-of-the-art training centre at the company’s headquarters in Leek, Staffordshire, delegates took the opportunity to network with their peers in the flooring industry.
Several of those attending were members of Facebook flooring forum ‘Talk Floor’, which has more than 60 members. For them, it was a chance to meet in person for the first time.
The flooring professionals were given technical briefings on and demonstrations of F Ball’s most recent and specialised products. These products included Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS (a temperature tolerant, pressure sensitive vinyl adhesive for use where floorcoverings are subject to extreme temperature fluctuations), Stopgap 1100 (a specialist smoothing underlayment for use over calcium sulphate screeds prior to the installation of floorcoverings) and F Ball’s range of waterproof surface membranes.
Following the briefings, delegates got a hands-on experience of using the products in F Ball’s purpose-built demonstration facility.
David Merrilees, who owns a flooring company in Preston and was present on the day said: ‘I thoroughly enjoyed the day at F Ball’s head office. The training facility there is brilliant. It was great to learn about new F Ball products and meet other flooring contractors, who I normally only ever ‘meet’ on social media.
‘The staff at F. Ball were really accommodating and did everything they could to make us feel welcome throughout the day.’
