Baltimore, Md. -- Fishman Flooring Solutions is expanding its operational footprint in Tennessee and into nearby states. Effective as of March 2018, the company will open a branch in Nashville, Tenn., which will serve customers in Central and Western Tennessee, as well as Northern Alabama and Southern Kentucky.

"As part of our strategic plan, we are constantly evaluating opportunities to grow our business organically," said Bill Mabeus, Fishman executive vice president. "Our due diligence indicated that there is a significant need for a full-service distributor of flooring and flooring installation products offering a range of services in Nashville and surrounding areas and we will be filling that void."

Fishman's Nashville branch will meet three marketplace needs based on feedback from flooring installation contractors in the area, according to Mabeus: first, an easily-accessible pickup location; second, an expanded, ready-to-purchase product line; and third, a reliable supply of products.

Fishman will rely on a highly-experienced team to service customers in Nashville and surrounding areas. Staffing the Nashville branch will be: Tim Bammon, territory business manager; Kevin Carlton, branch manager; and Guy Haynes customer service representative, who collectively have more than 65 years of flooring installation industry experience. Bill Morgan, architect, design, and facility representative, with more than 40 years of flooring industry experience, will also be available to work with architects, designers, facility managers and others in the area to recommend products and facilitate the flooring installation process.

The Nashville branch is Fishman's third in Tennessee, joining branches in Knoxville and Johnson City.
