The combination of Gerflor innovation and SnapLock segment knowledge and manufacturing capabilities would lead to exciting new solutions that redefine customer’s expectations and experience with the floor.
“With SnapLock’s commitment to US-manufactured solutions and continual product improvements through in-house engineering expertise, this reconfirms Gerflor’s focus on value-added solutions in growing segments while expanding our operational footprint in the US,” stated Benjamin Bachman, CEO of Gerflor in North America. “Kerry and Jorgen Moller, co-founders of Snaplock, will continue, Kerry as a consultant and Jorgen as Managing Director of the company, and share their expertise and build a link to SnapLock’s entrepreneurial legacy and success.”
