During the annual Fuse meeting earlier this year, HPS Schönox was recognized as the Supplier of the Year. With just a few years on the market, this award was a huge accomplishment for the Florence, Alabama-based company. As part of the never-resting spirit of the company, HPS Schönox is not satisified with this achievement alone.
In order to grow an even more customer- and project-specific focus, Kris Day, HPS Schönox National Account Manager, will assume a new role beginning Nov. 1, 2018. In addition to his responsibilities with HPS Schönox, he will also be the Key Account Manager for Fuse Commercial Flooring Alliance.
“Understanding the local challenges each Fuse Alliance partner faces daily, Kris, with his knowledge, will provide synergies between HPS Schönox local Regional Business Managers, the HPS Schönox Technical team, and each Fuse member around the country,” said Thomas Trissl, HPS Schönox Principal. “Many of the Fuse contractors know him in his current role. Before that, he was also a Regional Business Manager.”
From the Nashville, Tenn., area, Kris joined HPS Schönox in 2012, growing his territory along with the company, ultimately achieving his role as the National Accounts Manager.
Geoff Gordon, executive of Fuse Commercial Flooring Alliance, which is based in Parker Colo., and is member-owned, said he is pleased by this step and how the two companies can continue to expand their partnership.
“I believe this will only make our relationship between Schönox and Fuse that much stronger,” Gordon said. “Schönox is the epitome of the perfect supplier; no one even comes close to the kind of support Fuse gets from this company. I’m thrilled by this development.”
