ALBUQUERQUE, NM, June 21, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- GET A GRIP Resurfacing, a family-owned, national franchise company with headquarters in Albuquerque, is pleased to announce that it has been named a Sustainable Business award recipient by the New Mexico Business Weekly for its efforts to keep construction materials out of landfills. GET A GRIP resurfaces laminate or cultured marble countertops, and repairs cracked fiberglass bathtubs, scratched or stained porcelain bathtubs, tile showers and enclosures.
"It's an honor to be recognized for our commitment to sustainability and the impact of our efforts to provide an affordable, environmentally responsible way to beautify surfaces," says Sharon Dillard, CEO of GET A GRIP Resurfacing, Inc.
"We're constantly looking for new ways to improve our products and services, too. Our latest offering, Porcelain Glaze , is an innovative, high-performance coating system that returns porcelain tubs, sinks and showers to like new condition. It requires no acid to prepare surfaces, and delivers better environmental friendliness."
Annually, the company keeps a minimum of 156 truckloads of countertops and tubs per year out of landfills by resurfacing instead of replacing. Nationwide the company's network of 30 franchises and dealers in 17 states keeps over 3,000 tons out of landfills per year.
