Wadsworth, OH (March 9, 2018) — SOPREMA, Inc., a leading manufacturer in the roofing, waterproofing, wall protection and civil engineering industries, has expanded their comprehensive contractor training program by opening a new training center in Capitol Heights, Maryland. The new training center is located within a new 15,000-square-foot distribution facility operated by Convoy Supply Inc., a distributor of building envelope materials for the construction industry.
The new training center will offer courses covering product specifications and application for the full building envelope in a 1,350-square-foot classroom. The space will also be available to local contractors and architects for industry meetings and training sessions.
“We’re pleased to be expanding the reach of the SOPREMA contractor training program with our new Maryland location—our seventh training center in the U.S.,” said Curt Liscum, Technical Services Manager for SOPREMA. “We look forward to providing in-person education and hands-on product experience to contractors, consultants and architects at the Capitol Heights facility soon.”

We also want designers to better understand our products and systems and feel comfortable specifying them, so we are committed to ensuring they have every opportunity to interact with and learn from us in person.”
