Gerflor USA announced the signing of a lease for a new distribution facility in Bolingbrook, Illinois, just outside of Chicago, that will replace the current Gerflor facility and double the square footage dedicated to domestic inventory. It will also serve as a newly designed headquarters and collaboration space.
“We are firmly committed to providing our customers responsive and quick service to meet the growing demands of their clients and projects,” said Benjamin Bachman, CEO, Gerflor USA. “With the current uncertainty of the global supply chain, we are confident this investment in space and inventory will aid our customer’s efforts while being the foundation for our future trajectory.”
Bachman said the company is creating a new work environment for Gerflor team members. Called “The Court,” the new space will be flexible and collaborative, and it will incorporate sport, commercial and transport flooring surfaces from the company's major U.S. brands: Gerflor, Connor Sports and Sport Court.
"We believe we are an organization where champions work, and we want to create a team-building and customer-focused space worthy of champions," Bachman added.
Inventory build and new construction will begin in January to be fully integrated and occupied in time for an open house at Neocon.
