Taylor Adhesives joins Starnet

Date

DALTON, Ga. April 1, 2022 – The world’s largest network of full-service independent flooring contractors has selected TaylorAdhesives as its newest Preferred Vendor beginning April 1. Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership has over 390 locations across the U.S. and Canada. Taylor Adhesives is a leading producer of flooring adhesives and coatings for 45 years.

“We are delighted to have the Taylor brand available to our member network,” said Mark Bischoff, President and CEO of Starnet. “There is an intensity around adhesives from our members due to supply chain stress in addition to traditional performance, productivity and risk mitigation concerns. We’ve had many of our members request that we add Taylor to the Starnet PreferredVendor range as a trusted partner.”

“Taylor has a range of commercially-rated adhesives and coatings that are ideally suited for Starnet contractors and their customers,” remarked Paul Murfin, president of Taylor, a part of the Meridian Industrial Flooring Divison. “With our national distribution, quality reputation and sustainable formulations, we believe we are an ideal partner for Starnet.”

Taylor makes advanced flooring adhesives for resilient, carpet, and wood flooring, plus coatings that encapsulate old adhesive residue to promoting moisture vapor mitigation in concrete subfloors. In 2022, Taylor launched products specifically designed for floating floor installations and wall installations.

“We only represent the best vendors to our member partners across North America. That’s why Taylor was chosen,” said Eric Boender, Starnet VP.

“Starnet sets some of the highest standards in the industry, and we plan to meet those standards everyday with top products and service,” observed Shelley Ackerman, Commercial & OEM SalesManager for Taylor.

Taylor will be attending the Starnet 30th Anniversary MemberMeeting in Colorado Springs, CO, May 12–15.

Focus on Resilient: Common Mistakes Made When Installing Sheet Vinyl

Far too many installers fail to read and follow the flooring and adhesive manufacturer’s instructions when it comes to sheet vinyl. I have seen many failures that could have been easily avoided by simply following instructions. I cannot tell you how often I have been told, “The customer wouldn’t pay for substrate preparation,” or “We couldn’t acclimate the flooring because this is new construction.” I always tell these installers you should not do the installation if you cannot do it right.

Beauty is only skin-deep, or as they say in the flooring business, surface-deep. But being in the adhesives business as we are, we’d like to respectfully disagree. For us, the real Buzz about beauty comes from down below—the Substrate, that is. For most people, they never see it, much less think about it. For us, it’s the most important thing there is. It deserves your time and attention. Speaking of which, let’s Buzz about Time, too!
