A Do It Best vendor for the last 17 years, Surface Shields was also named Vendor of the Year in 2008, though in just the past year, competition in the Home Décor category has grown nearly 52%. According to Do it Best, vendors on the 25-category list, “provide the best product offerings and pricing to keep our member-owners competitive.” Do It Best serves 3,800 member-owned locations both in the US and in more than 50 countries worldwide.
Surface Shields provides a wide range of hard surface protection and construction products to Do It Best locations, including Carpet Shield®, Dust Shield Pro™, Shoe Covers, Step N Peel™ Clean Mats, and the extremely popular Builder Board™, which has seen sales growth of 112% in the last year thanks to its innovative Liquid Shield waterproof coating and roll-flat design. Builder Board™ replaces the need for unwieldy sheets of Masonite on the job site to protect against water, paint, mud or any other potential surface contamination.
Surface Shield's Chris Ferretti has been the Sales Manager for the Do It Best program for just under 2 years and his product expertise, passion, drive and ability to provide unparalleled customer support to his clients have been a major contributor to the program's success.
"Chris has done an outstanding job positioning Surface Shields as an industry leader and our continued focus on innovation, customer satisfaction and product development promise to make 2014 one of our best years to date," Fergus said.
