LP’s 2016 Engineered Excellence Tour Kicks Off

This week, LP officially kicked off the 2016 Engineered Excellence Tour, a mobile event that travels to dealers and lumberyards across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The purpose of the LP Engineered Excellence Tour is to offer builders a chance to learn more about LP’s offerings through informational and interactive product demonstrations.

We know that builders appreciate seeing products in action. With the Engineered Excellence Tour, we show how our products will work in real-life applications on a jobsite. Since the events run during lunch, we encourage all attendees to take a break as we fire up the grill and serve a complimentary meal to show our appreciation for customers visiting the event!

If you live in the Southeast or Mid-Atlantic region, check out the tour schedule below to see if we are stopping at a dealer near you. Mark your calendar now, and make plans to attend!
