National Flooring Equipment now offers free personalized training for distribution partners and potential customers across Europe. The company has recently announced its European expansion and now offers in-person training for all of its products including floor strippers, grinders and shot blasters. The training explains how to set up, use and maintain surface preparation equipment to ensure operators get the maximum return on investment.

National Flooring Equipment has run US-based training sessions for the last five years. The quarterly training sessions in Denver offer a step-by-step guide to the equipment including initial set up, application and maintenance. The sessions are targeted at potential and existing customers looking to expand their product offering and improve their skill set.

In the UK, training is available for the range of surface preparation products that National Flooring Equipment offers. The hands-on training allows end users to get to grips with the surface preparation machines and use the equipment until they are confident they can perform jobs quickly and efficiently.


National Flooring Equipment’s industry expert Dave Bigham has coordinated the company’s training for the last five years. Bigham developed the workshop-based training programme using his extensive flooring industry experience in combination with customer feedback.

“There are some common misconceptions when it comes to surface preparation equipment. Customers often purchase large, heavy-duty machines without realising that small, compact machines are up to the job,” explained Dave Bigham director of national accounts at National Flooring Equipment. “The training programme explains to customers how they can really achieve return on investment, by using the right equipment for the right application in the right way.”

“The descriptions and specifications provided in the training session were extremely useful for getting to grips with how the equipment works in a warehouse application,” explained Callum Newell, depot manager at Mark One Hire. “We’ve been able to pass on this knowledge to our customers so that they can lessen the chance of mistakes and be more efficient with the equipment.”

National Flooring Equipment also boasts an extensive online video training library, which can be accessed on its website free of charge. This includes tutorials on grinding, scraping, shot blasting and scarifying.
