City Floor Supply (CFS) held their annual “Nailer Day” event on March 15, 2018. Once again hardwood floor contractors and vendors came out in record numbers to test their installation skills and network with other flooring professionals. More than $5000 in cash and prizes was handed out at the event. See video highlights.
As in year’s past, the much-anticipated “Fastest Nailer in the East” competition was the highlight of the event. Aacer Flooring sponsored this year’s contest which is a test of skill and speed, as competitors attempt to nail down 18 square feet of 2-1/4” red oak select flooring as quickly as possible. This year’s contest drew more than 40 competitors.
Perennial favorite and reigning champ Robert O’Connell, of O’Connell’s Custom Concepts, won the “Fastest Nailer in the East” title and $500 grand prize with an impressive time of 2:51. Ricardo Silva and Michel Guimaraes from FHR Flooring won the Team Competition with a time of 1:55.
More than 100 flooring professionals attended the event. “Once again we had a record turnout. It’s so great to see our customers engaged and networking with vendors to learn more about the industry’s new and innovative products, all the while, having a great time,” commented CFS Founder Mike Glavin.
Event sponsors including Aacer, Bona, Bostick, Basic Coatings, Dura Seal, Festool, Glitsa, LaCrosse Flooring, Lenmar, Norton Abrasives, the NWFA, Onieda, Oshkosh Designs, Power Nail, Primatech, Woca, and Vermont Natural Coatings.
Contractors received exclusive discounts and had a chance to win equipment, supplies and other prizes including a one-year membership to the NWFA. As always, City Floor offered free labor on all nailer repairs at their onsite machine shop.
City Floor Supply has already started planning their 8th Annual “Nailer Day” scheduled for March 21, 2019.
