“Teknor Apex has been the dominant matting supplier in the food service market for many years”, states Todd Borchardt, Director of Sales & Marketing, Superior Manufacturing Group. “We feel that this was a good fit and we are confident that the combination of the Teknor and NoTrax matting lines will provide even greater opportunities for the APEX™ dealers-distributors”.
To ensure a smooth transition, all products will be marketed under the APEX™ name, and will maintain the same product names, part numbers, warranties, and pricing schedule. In addition, the entire staff of Teknor Apex’s Food Service Division and the field sales representatives have joined Superior as part of the newly formed APEX™ Food Service Products Division. Borchardt adds, “Our number one priority is to make this transition as seamless as possible and allow Teknor’s people to continue to do the things that have made them so successful in this market. To put it simply, APEX™ customers will continue to purchase the same products, at the same prices, from the same people.”
Peter Larkin, new Director of Sales, APEX™ Food Service Products Division adds, “Superior has been in the matting business for over 60 years. Our experience in the food service market combined with Superior’s manufacturing expertise, service and support means good things ahead for the food service industry. Our customers couldn’t be in better hands.”
The new APEX™ Food Service Products Division will operate from their Customer Service & Sales Center in Providence, RI, with distribution and warehousing in Chicago, IL.
