“We’re thrilled to have such highly skilled, highly talented professionals join Gerflor USA,” Bachman said. “Together, they bring more than 75 years of industry experience to our team, and each is passionate, enthusiastic and focused—three traits we value in all of our employees. I’m confident their contributions will greatly boost our company culture, continued growth and reputation for quality products and people.”
