Florence, Ala—With 18 locations across six midwestern states, distribution giant Walcro has partnered with Schönox to expand its offering of installation supply options for its customer base.
Schönox will gain greater distribution throughout a key region of the country and the partnership provides Walcro growth into new sectors with a wider range of contractors and installers.
“Walcro makes it clear that a fundamental part of its mission is to make every installer’s job easier,” said Mike Penney, senior vice president of sales, Schönox HPS North America, Inc. “Schönox excels in that important area, helping projects move more quickly with stronger results while providing air quality and safety benefits for flooring professionals.”
Walcro will stock the full Schönox line, but some products have gained early attention based on Walcro’s focus on installer success, according to the company. Among those is Schönox SL, a smoothing and finishing compound—described by Schönox as a best-in-class performer with installer-friendly characteristics including its ability to be remixed up to three times without loss of its smooth texture.
“Walcro customers will see improvements in all subfloor tasks using Schönox products,” Penney added. “We are excited to see Schönox products and services aligning closely with Walcro’s focus on strong answers and production methods for customers.”
With nearly 50 years in the floor covering supplies and accessories business, Walcro has extensive distribution facilities, pickup locations and a truck fleet for deliveries. “Walcro provides everything needed to make floor covering easier, faster and more profitable,” explained Brandon Hagen, regional vice president, Schönox. “We are really impressed with Walcro’s logistics savvy and commitment to knowledgeable customer service.”
