Athletic and Multipurpose Flooring for the Education Market

Tuesday, February 2
10:00 am

Please join us as your PAISBOA Preferred Vendor Tarkett presents Athletic and Multipurpose Flooring for the Education MarketJeff Sackman, Northeast Regional Sales Manager for Tarkett Sports, will present an overview of industry standards and products available for multiple areas in a K-12 setting that requires safe, high performing multipurpose and athletic flooring.

Jeff’s presentation will also introduce the ASTM F2772 indoor sports flooring certification and will give attendees insight into the questions you need to ask to ensure you're selecting the right floor for your particular space or function. He’ll review all available flooring product types on the market with notes on where each product can provide the best benefits to your needs. Jeff will also review best maintenance practices for new and older floors.

About Our Presenter: Jeff Sackman began his construction industry career in 2005 with an athletic flooring contracting company based out of Burlington, VT as their inside sales and marketing coordinator. Shortly thereafter, he was promoted to be the sales manager for the Upstate/Central/Western regions of New York. After five years with a narrow focus on athletic flooring, he expanded his knowledge by joining the Nickerson Corporation to represent their exclusive lines of furniture, fixtures and equipment to the public and private education market in Western New York. Jeff’s career came full circle in 2015 when he joined Tarkett’s indoor sport flooring department as the Northeast Regional Sales Manager where he oversees business activities in nine states.

“I enjoy the opportunity I have to work with facility managers and architects all over the northeast to provide the safest and highest performing sports flooring surfaces for students and athletes of all ages and abilities. My biggest pay off is at the end of a project seeing happy kids enjoy gym time on their brand new floor.”

Tarkett Group leadership is the result of 140 years of flooring experience, thanks to the talent, values and commitment of generations of entrepreneurs. With over $3 Billion in annual sales and an average of 13 million square feet of flooring produced per day, Tarkett is a global leader in commercial, residential, and sports solutions.
