Recovery and Reinvestment

Well before green was a buzzword, Access Floors OnSite was founded on a premise of environmental, social and scal responsibility:
In the standard business model for an Access Flooring Contractor/Vendor, the goal is to sell and put in place as many new 2x2 panels as possible. A oor panel whose surface has worn out would be replaced by an entirely new panel with a factory fresh oor covering. The structural access oor panel and the wear surface are viewed as an homogenouse single product. The fact is, the panel and the wear surface are separate, produced by two completely different manufacturing concerns and (in the standard business model) bonded together by the Access Floor Manufacturer to be packaged, trucked, delivered handled and installed by their dealer. Emerging from the original business model and driven by the 24/7 needs of the FAA/ Enroute Air Trafc Facilities, Access Floors OnSite developed a new business plan. Armed with new technology and a service driven approach, Access Floors OnSite developed procedures and a culture that is truly green at its core. We focus on the remanufacture of existing American made products. We execute the work at the source of the material. The virtually new product can be installed right back where it came from or shipped off to be installed elsewhere. The concept is simple, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. Ancillary benet: OnSite services provide what has emerged as our nest virtue, new J-O-Bs in every locality in which we work. tel. 866-984-9991
