With 18 locations across six midwestern states, distribution-giant Walcro has partnered with Schönox to expand its offering of installation supply options for its substantial customer base. The partnership provides Walcro with innovative subfloor materials, supporting growth into new sectors with a wider range of contractors and installers. Schönox gains greater distribution throughout a key region of the country, working alongside Walcro, servicing customers with industry-leading subfloor solutions.
“Walcro makes it clear that a fundamental part of its mission is to make every installer’s job easier,” explained 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. Among those is Schönox SL, smoothing and finishing compound, 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,” commented Penney. “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 HPS North America, Inc. “We are really impressed with Walcro’s logistics savvy and commitment to knowledgeable customer service.” Plans are underway, enhancing the region’s access to Schönox and Walcro’s customer base expansion.
