CBC Flooring expands partnership with Sustainable Surfaces

Screen Shot 2015-12-15 at 2.40.23 PMCary, N.C.—CBC Flooring, a division of CBC America, has expanded the sales territory of Los Angeles-based Sustainable Surfaces (S2) to include all of California.

Founded as an innovative sales agency in Miami during the recession of 2008, S2 quickly gained massive market share and expanded into Southern California with a Los Angeles office in 2013. Capitalizing on CBC Flooring’s Torrance, Calif., warehouse, S2’s Quick-Ship program provides customers the ability to pick up product themselves or receive free freight on deliveries.

“S2 has a history of success and consistently produces one of the highest market penetrations across all territories,” said Chip Braulick, director of flooring, CBC Flooring. “The organization quadrupled the sales of our TOLI, Takiron, Halo and Ceres brands in two years when first appointed in Florida, winning our Most Valuable Performer award in 2011. That and their performance in Southern California in 2015 made this a logical decision.”

Well, now there is a solution. Continue reading Emergence of spray, roll-on adhesives taking hold
