The American Brush Manufacturers Association (ABMA) has announced the development of a quarterly webinar series from the ABMA Educational Institute. This webinar series is designed to provide timely and important industry education to our membership that will be beneficial deep within the organization.
“The series is designed to provide topics that are timely and relevant to today’s broom, brush, mop and roller manufacturers and their suppliers.” says RJ Lindstrom of Zephyr Mfg. who is the chair of the Vision 2020 Task Force. “After the 2020 ABMA Convention a task force was set up to study the needs of the association as defined in the survey results taken during the convention. One of the needs of particular interest was finding a way to increase outreach directly to the membership … to get more individuals involved at the organizational level, and to deliver important content directly to the organizational level.”
The ABMA website has launched a new glossary and brush lingo web page with common industry terms. The web page is a great introductory resource for new employees and anyone who is interested in new or different technologies. R.J. Lindstrom of Zephyr Manufacturing says, “Not everyone coming into the industry is even going to know the various types of brushes that people make/sell. I’ll be honest, it took me a long time before I figured out what a strip brush was.”
