Editorial Comment: Introduction to our Annual Trade Directory & Buying Guide

Welcome to the 2000 Annual Directory & Buying Guide, the most comprehensive and complete source for the floor care, cleaning and restoration industries. Within this issue, you will find:

  • Manufacturers

    • Distributors/Reps

      • Products

        • Certified Floor Covering Inspectors

          • Franchises/Licensing Programs

            • Associations

              • Technical Training Schools

              You’ll keep this year-round resource within arm’s reach!

              Since the launch of Commercial Floor Care’s premier supplement issue (March 2000), we have received a great deal of feedback on the editorial and graphical content. Of the columns and features published in the issue, Russ Kendzior’s safety article garnered the most responses. We at ICS promise to deliver similar high-impact features in future issues of Commercial Floor Care. Success breeds success!

              On another note, education and training are what makes this industry evolve and further itself. In light of this fact, ICS wants to recognize those instructors who create an exciting learning environment for its students, novice and expert alike.

              That’s why I am proud to announce the first annual “ICS Instructor of the Year” award. For the next two months, we will be accepting nominations on our web site, www.icsmag.com

            . Deadline for entry is July 30, 2000. The award winner will be announced in the fall.

            As always, I'm open to your suggestions, comments and concerns. Together, we will continue to make ICS the industry’s most preferred source of information.
