Salt Lake City, Utah -- HPS Schönox recently travelled to Midwest Floor Covering’s headquarters to present the annual Smooth Performer Award, which recognizes an outstanding distributor. Andy Bounsate, HPS Schönox regional vice president, Western U.S., presented the award and a $2,000 check to Jim Yates, manager for Midwest Floor Coverings.

The proceeds will go to the Midwest Floor Covering’s charity of choice, the Bryce Astle Foundation, which was formed in memory of U.S. Ski Team athlete Bryce Astle to increase avalanche awareness, promote training and education for athletes and the public while investing in safety.

“The award was developed to highlight the support, dedication and outstanding efforts by our distribution partners,” said Thomas Trissl, HPS Schönox principal.

“Midwest was an natural choice for this award because of their high level of support and dedication to our brand,” said Buonante. “Their exceptional growth with Schönox products in their market is a result of personal engagement of the entire Midwest sales team.”

With over 78 years in the business, Midwest has experienced a steady growth and expansion. They offer a full line of floor covering and installation products as well as laminate, acrylic and quartz countertop materials. They presently have sales divisions serving customers in Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming and Nevada.
