Based on excellent references and an award-winning reputation, Surface Solutions USA tackles a total floor restoration and performs seamlessly.
One of our longtime customers, Surface Solutions USA, recently completed the total floor restoration of a new distribution center for Milwaukee, WI-based Joy Global, Inc., a worldwide leader in high-productivity mining manufacturing solutions. The entire 275,000-square-foot floor of the building, which is owned by marine surplus superstore Great Lakes Skipper, had severe potholes and several deteriorated areas at different elevations, requiring extensive surface preparation before laying new concrete and seamless epoxy to create a smooth surface that would allow Automated Guide Vehicles (AGVs) to glide across with ease.
“This project is one of our most ambitious to date,” says Steve Hess, President of Surface Solutions USA. “The floor was in very rough condition, but with the surface preparation equipment purchased from Runyon Surface Prep, combined with Surface Solutions’ expertise, our ability to rip out and pour concrete and our branded epoxy products, we achieved the goal of smoothing out the floor, so Joy Global’s AGVs can pick parts off inventory racks and ship them around the world.”
In just four weeks, Surface Solutions’ team prepared the huge surface using high-performance HTC planetary grinders to clear away the existing floor, repairing and patching with new concrete before smoothing it to perfection using the Surface Solutions Epoxy 181, 1811vp and 321 systems at 22 mil total thickness. In addition, the installation team applied the Joy Global corporate logo graphic to the floor, sealing it with clear epoxy for a permanent finish.
As a company, Joy Global places the highest priority on safety. Management can rest assured that their new distribution center operations – with a new flooring system installed by Surface Solutions USA – will meet this goal, ensuring every employee returns home without injury or incident.
