Support Floor Finishers PRESS RELEASE
Floor Finishers and clients can help each other at SupportFloorFinishers.nu
SupportFloorFinishers.nu aims to bridge the gap between professional Floor Finishers and companies, local authorities, schools and others who are in a position to refurbish their floors earlier than planned as many buildings stand closed and empty. This allows d renovation projects to take place outside working hours and Floor Finishers have an opportunity to keep their businesses running during the crisis.
Covid-19 has paralysed most of the country, and SMEs in particular are struggling to keep the wheels rolling. Some of these companies are professional Floor Finishers, usually hard at work renovating floors in everything from sports halls and hotels, to council buildings and corporate offices. Along with many other businesses, Floor Finishers will find it increasingly difficult to get jobs in the situation we are all in, although as many rooms are empty, it can be a good time to tackle such a project.
Accelerate planned renovations
In support of industry colleagues, Junckers, the country's largest manufacturer of wood flooring has launched the initiative and microsite SupportFloorFinishers.nu, with the aim to mediate contact between floor Finishers and any clients seeking to accelerate their plans for renovation work.
“The initiative is meant as a helping hand for the many individuals and small floor sanding businesses who are having difficulty finding jobs at the moment. We can help bridge the gap between them and those customers who still have a floor renovation job planned in the near future. The site should make it easy for both parties to find each other quickly so projects can get started right away, while the closure lasts and the premises are empty,” says David Papworth, General Manager at Junckers.
A free service
Contact is completely free and non-binding, and Junckers Ltd has no stake in the individual projects. Through its extensive industry network, it has become clear to Junckers that many local authorities, in particular, are keen to accelerate their renovation projects.
“We want to help our business partners, the floor finishers, get through this crisis as much as we can. They don’t need to use our products, but we’re here to help if they need us,” says David Papworth.
