July Installer Of The Month - Triangle Superior Walls and Epoxy

Eddie Heiner - Triangle Superior Walls & Epoxy 

Eddie took the Epoxy training back in 2020 and added it to his wall systems company. He has been growing and busy every day. We were able to ask him some questions about his journey over the last 10 years, and what has pivoted his growth from steady to exponential.

1. How long have you had your company?

The company started in ‘86 and I'd been working there for a while, but I officially took it over in 2018. Epoxy came along after I met you guys in 2020 and came to your training. We hit it pretty hard after that.

2. Did you have any major roadblocks when growing, and if so, what did you do to overcome them?

Our roadblocks were probably that recession in 2006 and 2007 but we kept it together and kinda got lucky with a couple of big jobs that helped us stay afloat. There are always different obstacles to face: new companies coming in, the change in the economy, and inflation, all while trying to provide the best work and quality possible.

3. Do you have any tips for those starting out in the industry?

I would say to new people, don’t get discouraged if you make a mistake. You really have to focus on trial and error. I worked on my and my friend's garages and went back to basics. I learned different types of materials and how they work together. It’s manual labor and work at the end of the day, and you gotta learn and understand that nothing good comes easy. But once you get the hang of it, do some trial and error, and work hard at what you’re trying to do and succeed, things will eventually happen. You can’t have any down time when you’re just starting out, you gotta stay at it, and then more things will come to you.

4. What was a pivotal moment in your career if any?

Probably consistently networking and working with other contractors and doing good work, taking my time, and doing quality work allowed people to see and understand that we were there to do good work and not just collect a check. People noticed and it just escalated to more opportunities. We just stayed focused and pushed ourselves forward.

5. What is your favorite type of floor to install, and why?

Probably the marble / metallic look. I just love seeing the different characteristics of the motion of the epoxy and the way we apply it is pretty cool. Love the colors.

P.S: Just wanna say that getting with XPS and Epoxy Network really put me towards this great opportunity, and you guys helped me on both sides, the business side and the application side. And we put our own little flair into it and it’s been great. Also adding another option to your existing business can help that out too.
