SOPREMA® Opens New Training Center in Hayward, California

WADSWORTH, Ohio (Sept. 19, 2016)—SOPREMA, Inc., a leader in the roofing, waterproofing, wall protection and civil engineering industries, opened a new training center and offices in Hayward, California. The Hayward facility, located approximately 45 minutes west of San Francisco, will be a shared space for customers of SOPREMA, RESISTO and the newly acquired Chem Link. The new training center reaffirms the commitment SOPREMA has to providing education and training to the industry.

The facility stretches more than 8,800 square feet and will facilitate a number of educational programs, including AIA- and RCI-accredited continuing education courses and seminars, contractor training programs and industry events.

“We are proud to open a training center that will facilitate so many education tools for our customers, including contractors, architects and consultants,” said Tim Kersey, VP/GM. “The new training facility features a full classroom for offering continuing education credit courses and a hands-on training area supporting our contractor training program, as well as room for product demonstrations.”

The facility will host training on products and technologies from SOPREMA, RESISTO and Chem Link. The facility opening follows several recent SOPREMA expansion projects, including a recent manufacturing expansion at SOPREMA’s Gulfport, Mississippi, facility, encompassing manufacturing, product testing, distribution and training, and a ground breaking on the Wadsworth, Ohio, campus for a new PMMA/PMA resin facility.

In celebration of its establishment, SOPREMA held a grand opening event on September 16 at the new Hayward facility.
