Taylor Adhesives joins Starnet – Floor Covering News
Dalton—Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership, the world’s largest network of full-service independent flooring contractors, has selected Taylor Adhesives as its newest preferred vendor, beginning April 1. Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership has over 390 locations across the US 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 Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership. “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 preferred vendor range as a trusted partner.”
Paul Murfin, president of Taylor, a part of the Meridian Industrial Flooring Divison, added, “Taylor has a range of commercially rated adhesives and coatings that are ideally suited for Starnet contractors and their customers. 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 vice president.
Shelley Ackerman, commercial & OEM sales manager for Taylor, added, “Starnet sets some of the highest standards in the industry, and we plan to meet those standards everyday with top products and service.”
Taylor will be attending the Starnet 30th Anniversary Member Meeting in Colorado Springs, Colo., May 12–15.
