Staticworx® Named to the
2012 Inc. 500|5000 List
Newton Upper Falls, MA-August 6, 2012-Staticworx® Flooring,
North America's leader in static-free flooring for labs, cleanrooms
and electronics technology spaces, today announced it was named
to the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 list for the third year in a row.
According to Staticworx founder and CEO Dave Long, as electronic
devices decrease in size their circuit requirements increase (indicated
by Moore's Law) greatly increasing the vulnerability of electronics
to damage from electrostatic discharge. The broad-scale recognition
of this phenomenon has been a driving force in the company's growth.
"We no longer need to tell designers and architects why static-free
flooring is mandatory in critical environments like data centers,
server rooms, R&D labs, and electronics manufacturing,"
Long says. Instead, Staticworx helps clients determine which type
of flooring offers the best performance without exposing personnel
to unnecessary risks.
Three years ago Long noticed most architectural specifications
referenced incorrect electrical standards and outdated test methods;
as a result, specifications are often written incorrectly, inadvertently
putting people at risk. To help solve this problem, Staticworx focused
on client education, developing their Staticworx Youtube channel
and AIA lunch and learn programs to teach architects about electrostatic
test methods, grounding standards, and best practice specification
"We stopped talking about products and began focusing on the
need for architects to meet a professional standard of care when
writing flooring specifications," Long says. "And we hit
on something no one else was doing."
This unique business model has propelled the company's growth and
been the driving force behind a strategic alliance between Staticworx
and the world's most innovative carpet tile manufacturer. Long says,
"We went from competing against the worldwide leader in carpet
tile manufacturing and design to becoming their partner and the
only outlet for their static free products."
