Chicago, IL – November 9, 2021 Diverzify, the innovative national leader in commercial flooring installation and interior services, and Material Bank, the world’s largest marketplace for searching, sampling, and specifying architecture, design, and construction materials, have formed an exclusive complementary partnership that will extend existing services to each company’s client base and develop innovative project planning tools and resources for industry professionals nationwide.

“Material Bank is now the industry standard for selecting and obtaining project samples,” said Randy Weis, president of sales for Diverzify. “Introducing their services to our national program supports our goal of delivering the best customer experience possible; the platform allows our commercial clients the ability to search and discover the right products and sample them overnight.

Diverzify leverages its innovative modular business structure anchored by an advanced shared-services digital platform to link and power a network of company locations and established market brands that currently serve more than 7,500 clients. Diverzify provides expertise in the selection, installation, and maintenance of virtually every interior surface for more than 20,000 facilities nationwide.

“Diverzify’s focus on delivering a better client experience is very similar to our mission,” said Adam I. Sandow, Founder and CEO, Material Bank. “We are excited to bring their vast expertise with materials to our members and to meet the specifying needs of their thousands of commercial clients with our platform.”
