Ecore Partners with Spartan Surfaces for Product Relaunch
Ecore has partnered with specialty flooring distributor Spartan Surfaces to relaunch its ECOsurfaces line of products.
“The relaunch of ECOsurfaces not only strengthens (our) partnership but it also will play right into our strengths of building relationships with the end user and design community,” says Sean Swanson, vice-president of strategic growth at Spartan Surfaces. “The ECOsurfaces brand will be a key product in our expansion plans across the U.S.”
ECOsurfaces is a collection of performance surfaces that can be used in almost any commercial application. Developed by using reclaimed materials, the product line has the durability and ease of maintenance associated with resilient surfaces in an eco-friendly and versatile alternative.
“This strategic collaboration reinforces our commitment to a circular business model and elevates our commitment to being a leader in creating floors that do more for both people and the planet,” says Bo Barber, executive vice-president of sales and marketing at Ecore. “The support of Spartan Surfaces, a major player in sales and marketing for the commercial flooring industry, puts significant momentum behind this already successful collection by making it more readily available to the architect and design community.”
The ECOsurfaces portfolio consists of Aurora, ECOsilence, ECOsurfaces, Origins and Rx commercial flooring products. The products are made with a focus on continually improving efficiency, sustainability and responsible resource management. The manufacturing process has virtually no waste. Scrap material from production is collected and recycled back into the company’s system.
“Rubber can be continually recycled and does not degrade through the recycling process like other materials, such as paper or plastics,” says Barber.
Leading the collaboration with Spartan Surfaces is Jere L’Heureux, who recently joined Ecore as director of sales, agent network. Having spent his entire career serving the architect and design community, L’Heureux was recruited by the company specifically to oversee the ECOsurfaces program and manage the distributor partnerships.
