Foundation Supportworks of New Jersey, a Quality 1st Company, coordinated presentations to two groups of engineers in early June. Jeff Kortan, P.E., from Foundation Supportworks Inc., spoke to one engineering office over lunch on the topic, “An Introduction to Helical Foundation Systems and Push Piers.”
Foundation Supportworks of New Jersey also coordinated another, similar presentation where several different engineering firms were invited to a hotel conference room to learn about helical foundation systems, push piers, and other structural solutions from FSI.
In addition, Foundation Supportworks was the featured speaker at the New Jersey Association of Licensed Professional Home Inspector’s monthly meeting. Jeff spoke for two hours on the Causes, Symptoms and Solutions for Common Foundation Problems. Approximately 60-70 local home inspectors were in attendance.
Foundation Supportworks of New Jersey is a great resource for homeowners in need of Foundation Repair, or specifiers looking for a qualified helical pile installation for a new construction application.
Training workshops have been in full swing at the Foundation Supportworks’ headquarters in Omaha, NE. Installation Training in April filled to capacity and had a waiting list, resulting in an added session in May.
Five new FSI dealers joined us for our May Sales Training, along with more than 25 additional attendees. Our newest training offering, Commercial Marketing and Sales Training, offered July 8-10 filled to capacity with over 40 attendees! Our most recent trainings in September included Installation Training and Commercial Markting and Sales Training, both of which filled to capacity.
The Foundation Supportworks network of foundation repair contractors is growing and they are busier than ever!
The Foundation Supportworks annual dealer convention took place on August 13-15th with over 500 dealers and their employees in attendance. The theme of this year’s convention was Believe! and those who were able to be there with us can most certainly believe that Foundation Supportworks and our dealer network are making a difference in the structural industry.
As always, the convention gave dealers the opportunity to see new products, receive comprehensive training that will help their business grow, and network with other dealers from around the world. This year’s convention was especially moving with our guest speaker, Nick Vujicic who inspired everyone in attendance.
