Florence, Ala.—Schönox HPS North America has teamed up with Eagle River Floor Supply to help put Schönox products into the hands of installers addressing some of the toughest subfloor challenges in Alaska.
“In Alaska, we have more than our share of subfloor issues including the effects of earthquakes, frost heaving and extreme temperatures,” explained Walter Adolphs, co-owner of Eagle River Floor Supply. “Two and half years ago, I first used Schönox self-leveling compounds to address a subfloor with waves and dips throughout; I was sold by the performance of Schönox.”
Already veteran flooring installers, co-owners Walter Adolphs and Dave Miltersen, began plans to open Eagle River Floor Supply to make Schönox and other quality flooring supplies readily available to installers throughout Alaska. Those plans are coming to fruition with their location in Eagle River, Ark., and a stocking warehouse partnership in Anchorage with Flooring Supply Warehouse, the company said.
“The popular trends for LVT floors requiring smooth, flat subfloors paired with the subfloor conditions we see in Alaska clearly supported our decision to choose Schönox for our business,” Miltersen said. “We want to support installers with moisture issues in slabs, subfloors that have settled and become uneven and with the best patches and adhesives; Schönox has the products, systems and support needed for our customers.”
Greg Jodarski, regional vice president, Schönox HPS North America, said the company is excited to partner with Eagle River Floor Supply and its co-owners, Adolphs and Miltersen. “It speaks volumes when industry veterans like Walter and Dave choose Schönox for their business after using the Schönox products themselves,” he said.
Miltersen added, “Once our installer customers use the Schönox products, they will see the excellent flow characteristics, adhesion levels, quick curing times and broad solutions that made us certain we wanted to provide these products at Eagle River Floor Supply. We are ramping up our business week by week and look forward to serving the flooring industry and Alaska, which both mean so much to us.”
