Flooring Industry Offering

Improve quality and reduce scrap

Demand for flooring is high but with raw material and labor shortages, it is likely harder than ever to meet demand. Cross Company has a number of products and services to help you keep your equipment functioning properly, improve the quality of your product, reduce scrap, and automate to combat labor shortages.

Cross’s Automation Group has been working hand in hand with customers in the flooring industry to understand your pain points and create unique solutions to help. By helping to automate tasks like palletizing you can free up labor for higher value tasks within your facility. In addition, solutions like our automated gloss measurement system can help to ensure that your product is consistent. It also gives you real time data to correct issues quickly. This helps to eliminate scrap and use less raw materials — which are in short supply.

Our Precision Measurement Group, formerly J.A. King, offers a wide range of measurement equipment and calibration services. Whether you are measuring tongue and groove profiles, weighing raw materials, or monitoring temperature we can help. We also offer a wide range of testing services including sun simulation testing, shipment testing, durability testing, and more!

Cross Hose & Fittings group offers high quality industrial hose and fittings to keep your equipment running smoothly. Our four NC locations boast one of the largest inventories in the industry. We keep a wide array of hose and fitting sizes on hand so we can get back up and running quickly when a hose breaks. Whether you need a hydraulic hose for your machinery or flexible hose for ducting solutions to help with dust or fumes we are here to help.
