Coliseum 350 - Product and Labor Savings

The Altoona/ Johnstown, Pennsylvania diocese schools consist of three Catholic high schools:  Bishop McCort, Bishop Guilfoyle and Bishop Carroll.  Prior to this year, all three schools outsourced their wood floor coating, paying for both product and labor.  Using Coliseum 350 and Buckeye Reflection's simple, cost effective preparation program the schools took their wood floor coating back in-house.  This not only saved them significantly in labor, but it saved them over $1,000 strictly in product.  The three schools used 55 gallons less of Coliseum 350 than they did their previous product.

Maple Dale Elementary School success with Arena 300

Maple Dale Elementary School in River Hills, Wisconsin has always had their gym floor coating contracted out.  Most recently the contractors had used an Essential Industry's product that saved time on the preparation part of the work, but left much to be desired in the overall cleanliness and brightness of the floor.  San-a-Care, Inc sales manager, Mike Griffin and Buckeye International sales representative Matt Mirenda did a demonstration of Buckeye's Reflection's program process and laid 2 coats of Arena 300, a water-based OMU gym coating. They were able to do this while the school was in session due to Arena 300's industry leading low VOC levels.  The next Monday following the demonstration, Mirenda was called by Tyrone Williams, the head of maintenance for the school.  He said "Thank-you for my best Monday ever".  Apparently he had never received as many compliments on the way the gym floor looked.  In the past, the cleaning contractor was saving some time, but the floor never got that floor fully clean and the shine and brightness of the floor left much to be desired.  The gym floor is the most expensive and prestigious floor in the whole building.  Other brands may save a few hours, but the Reflection's program results speak for themselves.
