Bostik, Inc., a world leader in specialty adhesives and installation systems for building construction, as part of a ramped up strategy focusing on higher-end commercial project work, has announced its new partnership with Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership. “This makes quite a bit of sense for our company,” stated Michael Zaccardelli, Bostik’s Director of Sales, “as we plan on aggressively building our contract project portfolio during 2018. Starnet has an excellent track record, a foundation based upon the highest business ethics… and, is comprised of highly successful and reputable, full-service commercial flooring contractors, servicing more than 325 locations throughout North America. We have already experienced major success within the hospitality and high-rise construction sectors. Now that we have compiled a comprehensive offering of proven system solutions for specialty applications, we believe this partnership will be ideal in helping Bostik segue into even more sectors of the commercial construction arena.
“There are so many benefits associated with this partnership,” continued Zaccardelli. “In particular, it puts our brand in front of seasoned flooring contractors who are Starnet members. It also helps us better acquaint these professionals with what we have to offer, and how they will be able to greatly benefit by working with our problem-solving installation systems. Moving forward, we are committed to do whatever we can to make this new partnership as mutually beneficial as possible… for all involved.”
“We are looking forward to our expanded partnership with Bostik,” stated Jeanne Matson, President & CEO at Starnet. “Starnet has partnered with two brands within the Bostik organization (CMP and XL Products) and now we anticipate even stronger business success with the full Bostik portfolio.”
Scott Banda, Bostik’s Director of Marketing and Business Development added, “Over the last few years, we’ve developed a plethora of excellent training and other support programs for our key flooring contractors. We are looking forward to beginning implementation of these with our new Starnet contractor partners.”
