“PREFERRED GLOBAL has been a great partner for Sun King over the years. Their work is of the highest quality, plus they are willing and able to work with our demanding schedule to get the work done on time. PREFERRED GLOBAL does their job, so we can do ours, making great beer.”

Clay Robinson | Sun King, Co-Founder and Owner

Prior to working with PREFERRED GLOBAL, Sun King’s production floor was a 6-mil polyethylene sheeting, with an additional second covering poured on top. The concrete began to collapse, creating holes and exposed aggregate due to the mix of hot water, beer, and chemicals. Sun King needed a durable floor to withhold the harsh elements and heavy foot traffic. On any given Friday, Sun King welcomes between 700 to 900 visitors. PREFERRED GLOBAL immediately identified the primary issues and recommended upgrading to a Dur-A-Flex and Poly-Crete SLB textured urethane mortar system base and urethane topcoat under the brewery tanks. PREFERRED GLOBAL understood the urgency and impact of downtime; in turn, developing a succinct project plan minimizing shut down to a 2.5-day window.

“They do great work and are a great company to work with because they understand our needs.”

In the tasting area, the original floor was aging bare concrete. Installing a double broadcast flake system addressed the concrete issues, creating a seamless surface and eliminating cracks and creases. Understanding Sun King’s needs and value proposition, PREFERRED GLOBAL also recommended adding an art stencil and stain to promote their state pride and customer brand promise: “Fresh Local Beer.”
