Aurora, Colo., 01-09-2018 - UZIN adds Cole Flooring Division as Upper Midwest Distributor

Uzin Utz North America announced today that the Cole Flooring Division of Cole Papers Inc. will be their newest distributor in the upper Midwest.

Travis Wichern, Cole Flooring's Senior VP for the Flooring Division, embodies vision and purpose that caught the attention of UZIN. "Chuck's philosophy that 'I and those who work here must have integrity and strive for fairness in our relationships with employees, suppliers, competitors, customers, stockholders and others' was a determining factor in deciding to Partner with them", said Brian Preuss, Brand Manager for UZIN. "These are attributes that we are happy to say that we share with Cole." UZIN will supply its full range of substrate preparation products through Cole's nine branch locations which serve customers in North Dakota, South Dakota, Eastern Montana, Minnesota, Northwest Iowa, Northeast Nebraska and Northwest and West Central Wisconsin.
