Bonitz, Inc., a national supplier of flooring products for the past six decades, announced earlier this week that the company is opening its newest commercial flooring operation in New Orleans, Lousiana.
Bonitz will use the new location to harvest business relationships by working with the large number of general contractors, architects, interior designers and end-use customers in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge metropolitan markets.
The company has hired Patrick Able to lead the operations at the new location.
“We are proud to name Patrick Able to the leadership team at Bonitz,” Pete Larmore, CEO of the Bonitz Flooring Group, said. “Patrick will have full responsibility for the new operation. We are excited about the knowledge, experience and local connections Patrick brings to Bonitz Flooring Group in New Orleans. We intend to positively impact and enhance the lives of our associates and customers in a fun and profitable work environment through our commercial flooring services. This is a primary goal for us in all of the locations in which we operate.”
Able is a veteran of the flooring industry in the region, working for more than 16 years as a dealer and also in manufacturing.
“I am excited to join the Bonitz team and I look forward to positively impacting the local business economy,” Able said. “Our company is recognized as the industry leader, and we proudly set the bar when it comes to quality, integrity, and customer service. I am eager to introduce Bonitz to the Gulf Coast market and establish long-term business relationships in the area.”
