Hero Flooring & Nike Grind: Eco Innovation

Post Image

Hero Flooring, founded by Reade Palmer, a former world championship gold medalist rower, is revolutionizing the commercial floor covering industry with its innovative approach. Recognizing a gap in the market for personalized client experiences, Palmer established Hero Flooring in 2014, aiming to deliver tailor-made solutions in an industry dominated by one-size-fits-all products.

One of Hero Flooring’s significant achievements is its partnership with Nike Grind, creating high-performance rubber flooring using recycled rubber from athletic shoes. Since 2020, they have developed five collections, with a sixth in the works, all featuring Nike Grind material. These collections offer ergonomic, acoustic, safety, and easy-to-care-for qualities, catering to various commercial needs.

Palmer’s vision for Hero Flooring + Nike Grind was not just a single product but a comprehensive portfolio that would set them apart in the market. Despite the challenging process of becoming a Nike Grind partner, Palmer’s persistence and dedication to his vision paid off, leading to the development of a range of unique collections.

The Nike Grind program, in existence for over 30 years, aims to create a Zero Waste Future by repurposing materials like recycled rubber from athletic shoes. Hero Flooring’s collaboration with Nike Grind has allowed them to eliminate crumb rubber, enhancing the quality and odor of their products.

Hero Flooring’s commitment to quality and sustainability extends beyond their flooring products.

Palmer’s personal connection to the cause, as an adoptive father, underscores the brand’s dedication to social sustainability and community support.

As the only LGBTBE brand certified by the NGLCC in the commercial flooring industry, Hero Flooring represents progress and inclusivity in a historically challenging environment. Palmer’s journey reflects the industry’s evolution towards acceptance and diversity.

Hero Flooring’s partnership with Nike Grind, commitment to quality and sustainability, and dedication to social causes make them a standout in the industry.
