Hillyard to Close for Total Solar Eclipse

Posted by Lauren Catron on Aug 11, 2017 8:45:19 AM


On Monday, August 21, 2017, the Total Solar Eclipse is set to bring "once-in-a-lifetime" traffic to the St. Joseph, Missouri area, as people from around the globe descend upon the area. St. Joseph is one of the fifth largest cities along the path of totality, and the third best city for viewing the eclipse. The amount of people on the roads and in our city will not only impact our employees heading to work, but also our trucks moving in and out of our distribution center. As a result, the Hillyard St. Joseph corporate office will be closed.

Tournament Ready: Floors in Two Hours - A Reality with Recon™

Posted by Lauren Catron on Mar 2, 2017 1:26:54 PM

Nowadays, gyms have become 24/7 community centers with meetings, assemblies and ceremonies that wear on a sports floor finish. Even with the best coating and maintenance program, gym floors will take a beating, and can lose their high-gloss appearance as the season wears on. Come tournament time, you’d never think to take on a scrub and recoat project, but with Recon™ you can!

Recon is a revolutionary, two-component, micro-layer sports floor coating system that takes very little effort to get exceptional new floor looks and performance, any time you need it, like a mid-season tune-up right before a tournament!

Recon has the performance characteristics of a true sports floor coating, and is applied more like a resilient floor finish. The process is quick and easy. If in-house staff can run an autoscrubber and flat mop finish, they can use Recon! For the gym floor in these photos, it took two men about an hour and a half to complete.

The great thing about Recon is its easy prep, how quickly it dries, and how fast you can return to play. Traditional recoating takes sports floors out of service for four or five days at a time. However, Recon’s quick drying solution means that the gym can be back open and ready for full play 12 hours later!
