Mansfield, Mass. -- The Belknap White Group (BWG) hosted a high-energy open house at its Rochester, New York Solution Center.

Thirteen top suppliers demonstrated products and offered tips to the event's 85 guests. This informative evening offered the latest in flooring design ideas, materials, finishing touches and installation products. Educational, hands-on demonstrations included a new tools and a ceramic/shower installation segment.

“This event is held every year, and this was our biggest turnout yet,” said Mike Maslyn, BWG’s branch manager of the Rochester Division. “We had quite a few new customers attend... and, it was the biggest vendor participation we’ve ever had.”

With momentum high, The Belknap White Group’s 38th Annual Golf Outing was held the following day at the Victor Hills Golf Club in Victor, N.Y. The weather was accommodating for guests to both golf and mingle with colleagues, BWG representatives and suppliers. The tournament saw 20 teams participate in the four-person scramble, and a two-way tie for first place; the tie breaker being decided by the 8th Hole score for both teams.

“It was great to meet firsthand with our customers offsite, while they were removed from their rigorous daily demands,” said Dan Doyle, BWG's vice president of branch sales and operations. “That, coupled with our meals and contests, made for an instructive, but very fun and relaxing afternoon.”
