Chicago—At NeoCon 2018, Shannon Specialty Floors named Ellie Dowden Priester director of marketing—a newly created position that she was promoted to here.
“Ellie has played a pivotal role in the growth and development of our PR, product development and social media marketing,” said Jeff Collum, president and CEO, Shannon Specialty Floors. “She has had overall creative influence on all marketing initiatives for several years now and has recently moved us into the Teknoflor brand initiative in an exciting fashion.”

Milwaukee, Wis.—Shannon Specialty Floors, a high satisfaction, high performance manufacturer and supplier of flooring in the commercial market-segment, has added Coastalscapes High Performance Design (HPD) to its Teknoflor brand of resilient flooring.
Teknoflor Coastalscapes HPD was named as a testimony to its purpose: high performance design with superior wood visuals. The product was designed to mirror the wood plank floors of years past with a composition made to function with today’s priorities.
Coastalscapes HPD is composed of virgin PVC with no outside recycled content and is free of phthalates. It has passed testing with impressive performance including no visual appearance difference after 25,000 cycles against the Phillip’s Castor Chair Test and stain resistance.
The product has a published HPD available on both the company and HPD-Collaborative websites.
