American Sanders and Pioneer Eclipse Announce Launch of TimberGuard Line of Wood Floor Products

SPARTA, NC – October 1, 2015: Clarke American Sanders, the worldwide leader in the design and production of wood floor sanders, together with Pioneer Eclipse, a leading manufacturer of floor care and cleaning solutions, announced today the launch of its new line of water based hardwood floor products. The TimberGuard line of products includes both one-part and two-part professional wood floor finishes as well as a sports floor finish, hardwood floor sealer, and wood floor cleaners for both contractors and homeowners.

The 2014 acquisition of American Sanders by Amano Pioneer Eclipse made for a natural transition into the professional wood floor finish and cleaners market. The TimberGuard line is manufactured in the Sparta, North Carolina chemical manufacturing facility of Pioneer Eclipse and American Sanders, and will be available through American Sanders distributors.

“The TimberGuard line of products will be an excellent addition to our hardwood floor offering,” said Brian Strickland, VP of product development and marketing. “The fact that American Sanders is now part of the Amano Pioneer Eclipse family has allowed us to fill this gap in our hardwood floor line. Pioneer Eclipse has been a leader in floor care manufacturing for years and the specific floor finish expertise of the chemical team has produced a superior line of hardwood floor finishes and cleaners. This is just one of the many exciting things to come for American Sanders.”
