Bel Air, Md.— Spartan Surfaces acquired Source One Contract, turning a long-time relationship into a long-term partnership, the company said. Bringing on its team of six, Spartan said it is set to grow market share throughout the Ohio Valley area.
After seven years as a commercial contract rep, Michael Thompson said he founded Source One in 2005 with the goal of bringing an assortment of quality products to an underserved geography. Thompson’s model—building a book of business with a focus on developing a professional brand of support and follow-up and always putting the client first—gained his team the reputation for bringing problem solving, unique products and solutions to the market, according to the company.
“My team always focused on developing our personal professional brand,” Thompson said. “The time is right for my team to join Spartan. This partnership will bring more brands and products to our clients as well as give our reps the support to grow business.”
According to Michael Blasek, vice president of sales, Spartan, Source One is the missing piece to round out Spartan’s Eastern U.S. representation. “Tactically, they approach the market in a similar manner. Now, armed with Spartan resources and product mix, the team will have a stronger package to offer their existing clients while opening additional opportunities in new market segments.”
With the acquisition, Spartan said it welcomes six new members to its team—Michael Thompson, Christy Mulhall, Chris Koury, Brigette Shirley, Scott Reitz and Stephen Stauch.
