"We hope everyone attending the SPFA Convention and Expo next week in Jacksonville will visit CPI and SFC at booth #109. We recently released the new Low-Pressure SPF Chemical Health and Safety Training in English and Spanish, and our corresponding high-pressure training is now available in Spanish, too. We will have information about those training programs, as well as the latest updates on product stewardship and promotion," said Salamone.
