INSTALL and Mohawk Group Partner at NeoCon 2016 to Demonstrate Quality Flooring Installation

June 23, 2016

The quality of an installation can make or break a flooring project. At NeoCon 2016, INSTALL and Mohawk Group will emphasize the value of quality, certified installation through live, daily installation demonstrations. As the largest commercial interiors show in North America, NeoCon will be held at Chicago’s historic Merchandise Mart from June 13-15. The INSTALL/Mohawk demonstrations can be found in the North Lobby on the first floor.

INSTALL, the leading floorcovering training and certification program in North America, and Mohawk Group, a leading floorcovering manufacturer, will showcase new and innovative installation techniques, including floating carpet tile installations with FlexLok tabs and loose lay LVT.

“INSTALL’s mission is to train and educate for the purpose of quality flooring installations,” said John McGrath, INSTALL executive director. “Mohawk is a valued partner to INSTALL and with its focus on quality flooring materials, this collaboration allows us to impress upon the crowds at NeoCon of the need for both quality products and installation to ensure a successful commercial flooring project.”

This series of dynamic demonstrations using new Mohawk Group flooring products will occur throughout the day Monday and Tuesday of the show in the North Lobby of the Merchandise Mart. With INSTALL’s floorcovering expertise, the Chicago skyline will be brought to life in a 16’ x 16’ space using newly introduced products from Mohawk Group.

“Working alongside INSTALL and our independent dealer base to provide a quality flooring experience from start to finish has proven to be invaluable,” explains Michel Vermette, president of Commercial and International at Mohawk Industries. “INSTALL continues to be a vital resource for us and our clients as we strive to make sure we are partnering with educated, skilled installers to deliver an outstanding end result.”
