BALTIMORE, MD., October 1, 2018 – Fishman Flooring Solutions, a distributor of flooring and flooring installation products, has opened a new branch in Garden City, Georgia, effective today. The new facility will enable Fishman to better meet the needs of floor covering installers across the Coastal Georgia flooring marketplace, including Savannah, Georgia.
“For some time, customers have expressed to Jay Harvey, our Southeast Region manager, the need for Fishman to expand its presence in the Coastal Georgia marketplace,” said Bill Mabeus, Fishman executive vice president. “We listened to those customers, assessed the marketplace and our growth opportunities there and determined that we could more efficiently and effectively delight current and future customers with a branch near Savannah, rather than continuing to service the market from our Charleston, South Carolina location.”
The new Fishman branch will be managed by Sharlotte Halford, a 16-year veteran of the flooring industry, according to Mabeus. The branch will feature a showroom and a warehouse large enough for the company to inventory key items from its product line. This will include, but is not limited to, flooring installation supplies, such as seam tape and tack strip, as well as tools, adhesives and floor preparation products. A range of flooring products, including rubber flooring, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and vinyl composition tile (VCT), will also be available at the branch, located at 4910 Old Louisville Road, Unit 102, Garden City, Georgia 31408.
The Garden City branch is the third branch Fishman has opened in less than two years. New branches were also opened in Nashville, Tennessee in March 2018 and Knoxville, Tennessee in March 2017.
