Stonhard, The Stonhard Group
Floors for Every Environment
“Communication is key.”
That’s what graphic designer and promotional coordinator Denise Salvano said is the most important thing she’s learned in the nearly 36 years she’s worked at Stonhard.
“With nearly a century in business Stonhard [which has been in Maple Shade since 1962], is the unprecedented leader in manufacturing and installing high performance epoxy and urethane floor, wall, and lining systems,” Salvano said. “Stonhard’s seamless, long-wearing and easy-to-clean systems are engineered to perform in both industrial and commercial environments without sacrificing design innovative vision.
“We work with you directly,” she added. “Available for both new construction and retrofit/rehab projects.”
Stonhard makes floors that protect work environments from chemical attack, impact, abrasion, thermal cycling, along with daily wear and tear.
Salvano said she would recommend Maple Shade to someone looking to open a business there.
“It has a great backbone, long history, community support,” she said.
Salvano said she is a member of the Maple Shade Business Association “representing and supporting our community.”
Having grown up and graduated from Pennsauken, she has lived in Maple Shade for 33 years.
“Spending quality time with my family and friends” is what Salvano says she does in her spare time.
“Customer service is key.”
That’s what Mike Bimmer says is the most important thing he’s learned when it comes to business.
Bimmer owns MB Solutions, a full-service merchant services company that has been in the Shade for eight years.
He is a partner in Voxedge, a VoIP phone company and is the purchasing agent for Mohawk Computers, a managed IT company.
Bimmer said he started MB Solutions as a “spin off” from his banking days and takes pride in providing excellent customer service to the merchants he serves.
He was in the banking industry for 20 years, starting as a branch manager and working his way up to senior lender for a small bank. Bimmer also owned a barcoding company for more than 10 years with his son-in-law and sold it to a company in Atlanta.
He said one reason he would recommend Maple Shade to anyone looking to start a business here is that the town government is business friendly. Bimmer has served on the Maple Shade Zoning Board for more than 25 years.
He joined the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce in 2013.
Bimmer served in new business development and then as an ambassador for the past year. He is proud to say he built MB Solutions through networking at the chamber and the Maple Shade Business Association.
Bimmer serves on the board of directors of the MSBA and currently is the treasurer. He said he joined the association for its networking potential.
Getting business owners to see the value of joining is the greatest challenge the MSBA faces, Bimmer said.
A graduate of Holy Cross, he grew up in Maple Shade and has lived here for more than 60 years.
Bimmer coached and was treasurer of the Maple Shade Babe Ruth league for many years and currently coaches the JV CYO basketball team at Our Lady of Perpetual Help school.
He said he likes to golf in his spare time.
