Long time Starnet vendor partner XL North brought a train full of floor care knowledge to Seattle recently.

APEX Seattle welcomed Bill Luallen from XL North for a 2-day IICRC Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician training. This training accelerates the knowledge and expertise of floor care technicians and strives to bring a higher level of professionalism to the industry. Thomas Holland, Starnet board member and CEO of APEX, noted the high level of commitment from XL North to the Starnet membership and the top-notch training that was provided.

Bill Luallen took the train a little further down the tracks and stopped by NFI Seattle for a joint training with NFI and G & W Interiors later in the week. XL North appreciates the support from these three excellent Starnet Floor Care members and will continue to visit additional members throughout the year.
