Dur-A-Flex offers Contractor Academy for Owners

Dur-A-Flex Inc. recently welcomed its first group of attendees to its new Contractor Academy for Owners, a program designed for independent commercial-floor business owners looking for a competitive edge in their industry.

The business owners — called “Partners” and part of Dur-A-Flex’s reseller channel — came to East Hartford, Conn., from as far away as Mexico and spent three days learning ways to strengthen their business practices to combat the challenges they face in today’s construction environment. The academy’s curriculum covers understanding management styles, improving profitability in a tight market, and financial strategies for the successful job site. The program also includes exercises in planning and postjob analysis.

More sessions are scheduled to run throughout the year.
