Previously located in Oxnard, California, Rubio Monocoat USA has relocated its headquarters to Spicewood, Texas. The new facility was fully operational as of Jan 2018.
There are two major reasons for a move halfway across the country. Operations and Finance Director Jess Card said, “We heard the call from many of our customers that we needed to improve our shipping times. We are in the age where the expectation is that everything should be delivered in two days to my door for free. Moving to the middle of the country allows us to service almost all customers within 2-3 days and allows us to get product from Europe in half the time. On top of that we are committed to and focused on training, and this move allowed us the space to create a really beautiful and comprehensive training center.”
The new 10,000 sq. ft. facility contains 2,500 sq. ft. of office space, 2,500 sq. ft. of training center, and 5,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space.
The new offices required hard work from the Rubio Monocoat USA team as well as incorporating various collaborations with skilled Rubio users. “It is really unbelievable how committed and dedicated our staff has been to making this facility what it is. From making the decision to move out here, to stepping up and handling every detail of the build out, I could not be more happy and thankful to our team,” said Jess Card.
The new offices feature wood flooring from WD Flooring (Laona, Wisconsin) installed by Brandon Santiago (Cleveland Hardwood Restoration), Steve Bumpus (Farmington Valley Flooring) and Tito Boror.
The conference room includes a King of Colours Wall made up of Wall Planks finished using one of every Oil Plus 2C, Precolor Easy and Hybrid Wood Protector colors the company offers. The conference table was created by a Delta Millworks using a Shou Sugi Bahn process and seats up to 12. The conference room floor is 10” White Oak flooring that was sanded by Daniel Boone (American Sanders) and site finished by Allan Nery (RMC USA) and Johannes Boonstra (RMC USA). They used Precolor Easy “Mystic Brown” and then a custom blend of Oil Plus 2C (3 parts Mud Light to 1 part Pure).
