industrial flooring finisherCHARLESTON, S.C. /New York Netwire/ — The area’s leading industrial flooring finisher Summit Industrial Flooring is expanding operations and opening an additional base of operations in Charleston, S.C. The new location is needed “To better serve our rapidly expanding client list in the Southeast region,” said Kim Powell, president of Summit Industrial Flooring.

“We are excited to set up shop in Charleston. The city is about the same size as Dayton, so we feel very at home there. Just as Dayton gives us an efficient base of operations for our Ohio and Midwest region clients, Charleston will be a terrific base to operate from in the Southeast,” Powell added.

Summit Industrial Flooring’s client list in the Dayton-Cincinnati region includes Jungle Jim’s International Market, GE, Sam’s Club and Walmart, Miller Valentine Group, Tom Raper RV, Sinclair Community College, and Wright-Patt Air Force Base, among many others.

Summit specializes in commercial and industrial floor systems. Surface finishes include polished concrete, seamless epoxy floor coatings, safety striping, concrete restoration and floor maintenance. The company also consults and designs industrial flooring, secondary containment, and specialty flooring, including logos and artwork.

Summit vice-president Keith Powell points out that the new facility represents a major step in the growth of the company. “We are committed to Dayton, and value both our workforce and our clients in this area,” Powell said. “We look forward to having as much success in our second base of operations in Charleston.”

“Organizations and industries of all types are trying to get the most they can get from their assets, and that includes the floors people walk on and equipment operates on,” Powell explained. “With a new installation, it is important to consult with experts like Summit to be sure the floor type is appropriate to the facility’s use. Of course, sometimes facilities change purposes, and we can engineer a floor for those cases as well.”

Powell also noted that refinishing an industrial floor is not just economically smart, but environmentally smart as well. “Every time a contractor polishes a concrete floor, he contributes to sustainability,” said Powell. “We have been at the forefront of environmental concerns for over a decade and we work with our vendor partners that take being green as seriously as we do.”

All of Summit’s industrial flooring projects meet or exceed the VOC and chemical components limits in accordance with Green Seal requirements. Summit supports the SGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) and its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) programs.
