aau-1 aau-4 aau-5 aau-8 aaujenin-palestineAacer Sports Flooring is based in the northwoods of Wisconsin, but our flooring travels the world. American Arab University of Jenin (http://www.aauj.edu/) in Palestine is one of the latest recipients of an Aacer sports floor. Mr. Nemer Jayousi, Founder & General Manager of AL-Hashem-Co, was the contractor and installer for this project.

AAU selected the AacerFlex DIN system for their multi-purpose hall.  This system includes precision engineered pads that deliver load bearing ability and enhanced athletic performance.  AacerFlex is a great choice for multi-purpose rooms.  To top off the floor, AAU selected the 2-1/4”, 1st grade northern hard maple.   In any language, that speaks beautiful!

Stay tuned for pictures of the finished floor.

Groundbreaking Good News.

Engineered Flooring Plans Announced

Posted by & filed under Aacer News, Distribution, Press Releases.

(July 13, 2016, Peshtigo, WI)  Aacer Flooring is excited to announce that they are expanding their manufacturing operation and will soon be producing northern hardwood engineered flooring.  Aacer is recognized as a high quality manufacturer of unfinished, prefinished, wirebrushed, and handscraped solid hardwood flooring.  The addition of engineered flooring will be a welcome complement to their existing product mix.

Construction on the new facility is scheduled to begin this August with the line being operational in Spring 2017. Once the project is complete, Aacer’s footprint will increase to 331,000 square feet.

The addition of an engineered line will be Aacer’s second major expansion within the past 12 months.   Aacer recently added a prefinished line.  “With the prefinished line expansion under our belt coupled with the vision of our owners, expanding into engineered flooring was a natural progression for Aacer.” says General Manager, Ray Webb.

Initial plans for the engineered line include offering multiple wear layer thicknesses. Flooring will be available in multiple widths, textures, colors and species.

IWF Flooring Days

Posted by & filed under Aacer News, Distribution, Events.

Thank you to Intermountain Wood Flooring for inviting us to participate in their Flooring Days in Salt Lake City.  It was a perfect venue to meet & greet with IWF and their customers.  Getting feedback on our two new Collections – Heartland and Countryside - from the people who are purchasing, selling & installing flooring daily is priceless. 

As usual, IWF hosted a class act event.  Attendees left with full stomachs, good information and some were even lucky enough to go home with door prizes.

John Richard is the Recipient of the 2016 Aacer Flooring Scholarship

Posted by & filed under Aacer News, Press Releases.

RickJohn2_webOn an annual basis, Aacer Flooring selects a graduating senior from Peshtigo High School as a recipient of their $1,000 Scholarship.  This year’s scholarship was awarded to John Richard.  For the past year, John has been employed at Aacer Flooring in their Added Value department building sport subfloors.  He has been working full-time during the summer and part-time throughout the school year.   John is an exemplary worker and student. 

All scholarship candidates are required to submit an essay along with their application.  John addressed a topic relevant to many manufacturing facilities in Wisconsin – the lack of skilled labor and how that affects the current workforce.  In addition to his essay, John was chosen for his good work ethic and his ambition to further his education.  John is enrolled in the NWTC Welding program in Marinette and will start classes this fall to become a certified welder.

Aacer commends John on his accomplishments and wishes him the best of luck on his future endeavors.

Thanks to Stalker Sports Floors, a certified Dealer of Aacer Sports Flooring, for sharing their time-lapse video with us.  The crew at Stalker Sports Floors gives the Muskego High School gym floor a spring makeover.  After sanding down to the bare wood, staining and repainting game lines, the Muskego High School hardwood floor looks amazing.

NWFA Expo 2016…We Floored It!

Posted by & filed under Aacer News, Distribution, Events, Trade Show News, Trade Shows.

ENERGIZED. The one word that describes our 2016 NWFA Expo experience.  While we may be tired from the week spent in Charlotte, we are energized and feel great about the path we are on.

Booth #607 was filled with constructive conversation and feedback centered around our new in-house prefinishing line. We had two products making their debut appearance at the Expo:

Heartland Collection – our new line up of prefinished flooring

Countryside Collection – our proposed wirebrush material

The feedback we received on our new lines was on-point and solidified that we are going in the right direction for our distributors to be successful in the marketplace.

For those that we were able to spend time with at the show…thank you! For those of you we missed, we hope we can catch up soon.  Feel free to contact your Regional Sales Manager for more information on our prefinished line and our new Collections.
