Training and Education
“ Knowledge And Timber Shouldn’t Be Much Used Till They Are Seasoned." - Oliver Wendell Holmes
Boy, is that Wood Pro in a nutshell- Knowledge and Timber. Have you ever spied a small evergreen planted atop a new construction project or even a towering skyscraper? Steelworkers, carpenters, architects, engineers- craftsmen, for centuries, have raised a small evergreen much like a mountain climber raises a flag, as a symbol that their work is nearly complete. The ‘Christmas Tree’ as it is commonly known is part of the ‘Topping Out’ ceremony and has many meanings worldwide: The completion of a project with no loss of life, Thanks to the forest that has given us so much, Good luck for future occupants. What the forest has provided mankind is immeasurable. With the passing of time, and advancing technologies, still today people are drawn to the comforts of nature. With this sentiment, Wood Pro continues to honor and celebrate an industry that for centuries has provided for beautiful wood flooring from the forests of the world. Today, more than any other time in history, we find it extremely important to provide, not just the timber, but also the knowledge needed to successfully blend products of nature with today’s modern construction practices- Knowledge and Timber.
Wood Pro has made a serious commitment to offer training and education to our staff, vendors, patrons, and acquaintances, in an effort to provide solutions and discuss the challenges we face in the hardwood flooring industry. Ever wonder why a hardwood floor becomes gapped, cupped, or buckled? What kind of finish does a prefinished hardwood floor have- oil or water? Answer: Neither! Why is there no such thing as Red Birch, but there is a Red Maple? What is the structural change coefficient of Santos Mahogany? The Janka rating for Brazilian Cherry? Why could hardwood flooring over radiant heat be a recipe for disaster? At Wood Pro, we could certainly answer all of these questions- and a whole lot more. Here’s a tip: So can you.
We invite all of our friends and patrons to join Wood Pro in sharing knowledge and experiences that will surely be an investment in our future business success, and ensure support for an honored and valuable industry. Wood Pro provides training classes that cover the acorn falling from the mighty oak, right through to when that oak becomes a hardwood floor. We offer studies in: The History of Hardwood Flooring, Industry Trends, Product Knowledge, Profit Margin, Installation Techniques, Finishing Practices, The Language of The Hardwood Flooring Industry, Wood & Water, Wood Species, Wood Floor Features and Benefits, How To Operate a SMART Business, and much more.
It was established in the early years of Wood Pro’s humble beginnings that in order to prosper, we must be dedicated to constant and never-ending improvement. This meant a commitment to a continual search and sharing of any and all information we could gather regarding hardwood flooring and it’s applications. Thus, we became Wood Pro- ‘the wood floor experts’. That title was earned over many years and remains our mission to this day.
Today, Wood Pro services markets from ‘Maine to Miami’ (as we like to say) and we got where we are, and will get where we are headed, because of our knowledge. Why is Wood Pro so eager to share our expanding influence and extensive knowledge with our patrons? The bottom line is- profit. A valued, appreciated, and much deserved profit for all. As a business owner, you have to keep your head held high and proudly proclaim that for all the time, effort, and funds you have committed to growing a business that you absolutely deserve to make a profit. That’s why businesses exist and what makes our personal and professional lives prosperous. Wood Pro is certainly aware that if we can partner with our patrons and provide an opportunity to make your company more profitable- you will likely develop a business relationship with Wood Pro that will be prosperous for us all for years to come.
The formula is simple: The knowledge we provide,
combined with the actions you take with that knowledge, equals profit for
your business. In sports it is said, “winning solves everything”.
In business: “Profit solves everything!” Wouldn’t a business
relationship with Wood Pro be a valuable asset to your small business if
it meant greater profits in the future? Do you have a bit of room on the
Profit and Loss Statement for a little less ‘loss’ and a lot
more ‘profit’? The formula becomes more simplified:
Wood Pro Training + Your Partnership= Profit$.
