Saddle Brook, NJ: More than 30 sales representatives and executives from laundry product supplier Tingue, Brown & Co., Saddle Brook, NJ ( participated in an intensive slate of educational classroom sessions and hands-on technical training at the company's 2008 National Conference and Sales Meeting. Held last week at the historic Dillard House, Dillard, Ga., the program was developed to ensure Tingue, Brown & Co. sales representatives are well-versed in the latest finishing equipment technology, knowledgeable about product quality innovations and up to date on the best practices in safety procedures. Tingue, Brown & Co. representative Michael McCann presented a comprehensive safety awareness program covering OSHA standards that apply to laundry facilities, strict adherence to lockout/tagout procedures and strengthening safe driving habits.

Export Director Dan Koebel demonstrated proper techniques for refelting the latest ironers from overseas and explained how to determine the ideal products for dressing the state-of-the-art equipment. Gene Williams of American Laundry Products (ALP) revealed how different materials impact felt quality and longevity, highlighting the importance of using monofilament scrim cloth for optimum strength and integrity and explaining when other fabrics might better suit the ironer application. Randy Vansparrentak, general manager of Tingue family company Talley Machinery, described what to look for in assessing the merits of an ironer rebuild vs. investing in new equipment while Bob Dunne of Tingue family company MOD demonstrated the laundry cart manufacturer's latest innovations.

"To see our sales team learning everything they can to help our customers run their plants more efficiently, more safely and more profitably not only makes me very proud to be a part of this organization but it also crystallizes why our customer relationships continue to grow and strengthen," says Ty Acton, national sales manager.
