Training Programs Expanded for 2004 By Woodharbor

The manufacturer of custom and semi-custom kitchen/bath cabinetry, headquartered here, announced a product-training program for February, June and September of 2004.

"Woodharbor University" is conducted at the company's Mason City, IA manufacturing facility three times annually, and has been expanded from the original two-day sessions in 1997 to the current three-day format, focusing primarily on Woodharbor cabinetry products, the company said. More than 100 dealers from Woodharbor's nationwide dealer network attended training at the factory during 2003, the company noted.

Woodharbor also conducts regular one-day regional training programs with a focus on cabinetry, as well as a one-day format to emphasize interior doors. About 300 dealers attended regional training sessions at various locations in 2003, the company said.

Woodharbor marketing director, Karen Wistrom, ASID, heads the cabinetry catalog and product training segment, which also includes a tour of the company's manufacturing facility, and a multi-step "designer" finish demonstration. The course also incorporates an introduction to Woodharbor interior door products, led by Woodharbor national sales manager Kevin Lewerke.

In addition to "Woodharbor University" and the continuing regional programs, Woodharbor announced it also plans to add a two-day training session at the factory in 2004, dedicated to the company's "Rockglen" product line.
