“Heartland Business Capital understood our vision of evolving from a distributor to a manufacturer and helped to make that a reality for us. Today we’re 200% larger than when we started this process in 2011.”
Nathan Ferman, Perfection Floor Tile, LLC
In 2011, Nathan Ferman was looking for a way to take his business, Reflex Moulding, to the next level. A distributor of polyvinyl flooring, he dreamed of taking the next step—to becoming a manufacturer with more control over the entire process.
Since 1999, the company had sourced its products from a factory in Ireland, which required an 8-10 week lead time.
Then Ferman found a manufacturing site in Grandview, Missouri, and decided to buy it. He worked with Heartland Business Capital—who coordinated with his local bank—to purchase the 2.5 acre lot. Heartland Business Capital then helped finance the construction of a 30,000 sq. ft. facility, as well as upgrades to the electrical, water, and sewage—bundling it all into one loan.
“We told Heartland Business Capital what we were looking for, and they worked with us and with the realtor to make it happen,” Ferman said.
He rechristened the business as Perfection Floor Tile, LLC, and it has grown 200% since making the switch. Today, Ferman has 27 employees—a substantial increase over his original 4—and can now deliver product to customers in 14 days. He also has 2 new patented products in the works.
“Best of all, now we’re truly ‘Made in the USA,’” Ferman added.
