Schönox was founded more than 125 years ago in Germany and is active in more than 40 countries worldwide. Here in North America, the marketing, support, and business development of Schönox is led by Thomas Trissl, no stranger to the flooring industry. Thomas founded Centiva in 1996 developing the business for 17 years before selling the company to flooring-powerhouse Tarkett. Soon thereafter, Thomas formed HPS North America, and alongside Schonox, began bringing its products to the North American market under the name HPS Schonox. He understood the profound need for strong subflooring solutions in the industry. The relationship with Schonox was hardly a new one. Thomas and his family’s flooring installation business in Germany have used Schonox products for many decades.
