The event is a cooperative effort and we truly appreciate the support of both our customers and sponsors.

Philadelphia Floor Store, a leading national distributor of hardwood flooring and supplies, held its 4th Annual Nailer Day on Thursday, March 20, 2014 at their Conshohocken showroom. Hardwood floor contractors, along with several sponsors including Norton Abrasives, Vermont Natural Coatings, Century Flooring, and Primatech, attended this entertaining and educational event.

As always, the highlight of the event was the “Fastest Nailer in the East” contest sponsored by Aacer. The hardwood flooring contractor who nails down 18 square feet of Aacer 2-1/4 Red Oak Select in the least amount of time claims the title and $500 cash award. Robert O’Connell, of O’Connell’s Custom Concepts, did just that! A winner three years running, Robert won with an unbeatable time of 2:35 minutes. His weapon of choice was the Primatech P250 ALR with extended channel. Robert beat his previous time of 2:52 and outpaced the impressive time of 3:15 nailed by Leon Margarite from Walsh Hardwood Flooring, located in Bromall, PA. Watch Robert’s winning effort on Philly Floor's YouTube channel.

Mike Glavin, Philadelphia Floor Store’s owner and founder, presented Robert with the $500 Grand Prize. “The event is a cooperative effort and we truly appreciate the support of both our customers and sponsors,” stated Glavin.

Attendees enjoyed special pricing, giveaways, and a chance to win hardwood flooring tools and equipment. Additionally, PFS offered free labor on all nailer repairs at their onsite machine shop. The company has already started planning their 5th Annual Nailer Day to take place March, 19, 2014.
