“Together, hand in hand we can accomplish great things.”
With that philosophy in mind, SASE Company Inc. introduces the SASE Signature Floor System, a unique approach to the entire polished concrete industry.
The word “system” as defined by Merriam-Webster is “a group of related parts that move or work together.”
When SASE discusses a system approach, “We are encompassing all of SASE, the complete package,” explains Greg Ferchaud, Vice President of Sales. “We approach the applicator (customer) and the industry with our entire package, focusing on real world solutions and not one particular facet of SASE Company.”
Using a consultative approach, the SASE Signature Floor System was developed with the best people in the industry with the end goal of serving the industry. The system involves starting from the top down and helping educate customers and the industry as a whole. This is accomplished by working with customers to address their concerns and what they see in the field. The core to this system includes the following aspects:
- Advancements in diamond technology
- Advancements in chemicals
- Advancements in machines
“You cannot have an industry or a lasting industry without educating the owners and architects on the proper system, based again on their needs,” Ferchaud says. “The SASE Signature Floor System works with the owners, architects and consultants to provide a solution to the actual needs of these individuals. Like other companies, we provide the traditional AIA presentations and supply AIA credits where needed.”
With a “ground up” approach, SASE Signature Floor Systems provides for the customer’s needs and enhances the specification by providing what the owner wants and needs for long term success, not just what is in fashion in today’s industry.
For example, an industrial facility that runs large industrial equipment does not need the specification of a high end retailer. “We’ll work with these owners to develop a specification and an overall acceptance of what this will look like both aesthetically and functioning for the life of the floor,” says Ferchaud.
“Once a specification is released our sales team focuses on working with our customers to ensure that we help provide uniformity from coast to coast,” notes Marcus Turek, National Sales Manager. “Defining expectations and continually working to provide uniformity is number one with SASE Signature Floor Systems.”
As a manufacturer of prep machines, diamond tooling, planetary grinders and chemicals, SASE Signature Floor System can react to any and all situations in terms of machinery and tooling situations that arise. Turek says, unlike other systems that involve multiple manufacturers and or multiple distributors, contractors will often run into road blocks or what he calls, “the blame game.”
SASE Company’s approach is multiplied by the ability to provide professional, knowledgeable on site help at a moment’s notice, allocating 13 field support technicians across the country and Canada.
“We pride ourselves on providing unmatched support to any project and under any circumstances,” explains Joe Reardon, Director of SASE Signature Floor Systems. “Unlike other ‘systems’ where you only have support on one level, SASE can provide the entire package from machines, tooling, vacuums, chemicals — it’s a one stop shop.”
One facet of the Signature Floor System is the chemistry behind the use of densifiers and protective treatments, components that have been in the industry for well over 70 years. SASE Signature Floor Systems developed products that address not only the benefits of these traditional products, but took the extra mile to address customers concerns at the core.
“Products that address the entire concrete surface, porosity and protecting this from every days spills was core to SASE,” Reardon says. “While this is a small component of the system, we wanted to provide the answers that were needed.”
Using an advanced technology, SASE Signature Floor Systems works by applying densification to protective penetrating products that work better than traditional solvents.
While the industry is still growing and evolving, the future is bright for polished concrete floors. It takes time and education to ensure what is being produced is not the latest and greatest fad but is concrete in its core philosophy.
”This process, the correct process, has been proven throughout time,” says Ferchaud. “The few (manufacturer’s) approaching the industry with ‘tricks’ are doing us all harm.”
SASE Signature Floor Systems encompasses a total package and a team approach to the industry; focusing on every component that is needed to ensure a successful project every time. The SASE system is designed to respond to the customer and the industry.
