After classroom sessions, some of the Flint Equipment Company sales staff assembled for a photo in Albany, Ga., on a Dynapac F1000W wheeled paver. During a paver walk around in Albany, Ga., Dynapac’s Ricardo Perez points out several features on the Dynapac F1000W paver, including the outboard auger system and the paver’s new camlock screed. Service staffers in attendance at the Atlanta, Ga., training program got a comprehensive walk around of the Dynapac FW1000W paver. During the paver walk around, Rodney Beavers, service manager of Flint Equipment Company’s Atlanta, Ga., branch carefully studies the control panel at the operator’s console on the Dynapac F1000W. It was a packed conference room of Flint service staffers at the Atlanta branch service training program. Dynapac’s service manger, Nono Bauleth, quickly started the classroom training with an in depth presentation of the hydraulic, pump and propulsion systems on the Dynapac FW1000W pavers.

It was an extremely busy week for Flint Equipment Company’s sales and service staff as Dynapac dedicated one full week to its authorized distributor for training programs.

Beginning on May 16, Flint’s sales personnel from south and central Georgia, Alabama and Florida met at the company’s headquarters facility in Albany, Ga., for a full day training school on the Dynapac pavers, milling and compaction machines. The following day, the service personnel from the same areas were brought in for a full day of service training on the Dynapac pavers.

On May 18 the Dynapac F1000W paver was trucked to Atlanta and the staff of Dynapac made their way to Flint’s Atlanta, Ga., branch to set up for training sessions, while on the morning of May 19 sales personnel from north Georgia and South Carolina converged on the Flint-Atlanta branch for the same sales training program conducted in Albany.

May 20 was the final training session in Atlanta and included a large contingent of service staffers from the north Georgia and South Carolina branch locations.

A total of approximately 70 Flint Equipment Company sales and service staff members gained advanced training from Dynapac corporate representatives. The main demo models used for the training sessions included the Dynapac F1000W wheeled paver and the Dynapac CC524HF vibratory asphalt compactor.

According to Dynapac Regional Manager Ricardo Perez, “the total number of Flint representatives that attended was great. The overall objective was to provide training for the sales and service departments to promote and demonstrate to their customers the combination package of the paver with the double drum asphalt roller behind it. This was the first exposure for an in depth training program for the F1000W paver for the Flint Equipment staff. We’re excited because we know that Flint is going to do a great job for us in selling and servicing these pavers in a very large geographical service area.”
