October 2019 Lagler/Loba Training Recap

On October 16th and 17th, 2019, we hosted a Lagler/Loba training event at our King of Prussia, PA headquarters to give hardwood floor contractors the opportunity to learn sanding finishing techniques. Course participants got hands-on experience in sanding multidirection wood panels using Lagler machines and finishing them with Loba products.

Marc Schulz, Vice President of Lagler North America, was present to demonstrate the Lagler machines and proper sanding techniques, as well as machine maintenance tips. Tom Zagula, Loba sales representative for the Northern U.S. demonstrated Loba products and finishing techniques.
Participants got the opportunity to work hands-on with Lagler machines such as the Hummel, Trio, and Flip, learning proper techniques under the direction of experts.

For some participants, it was their first time operating Lagler machines and working with Loba products.
