Spartan Surfaces acquired distributor HiLine Inc., a manufacturers' representative group based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, effective September 30, 2022.
Since 1979, HiLine has serviced the flooring trade, commercial specifiers and end users in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Dakotas, Iowa and Nebraska. HiLine partners Terry Hermanson and Brian Prevost took over day-to-day business operations in 2016.
“New products, pricing advantages, and superior logistics make this a very exciting endeavor,” Hermanson said. "Combining our local knowledge and relationships, the Spartan acquisition will allow us to provide an unmatched experience for our clients."
“It’s rare that you find an organization that has warehousing, logistics and also knows how to engage the commercial specifiers at a high level," added Mike Blasek, vice president of sales, Spartan Surfaces.
