About AutoStone
AutoStone Floor Systems is the leading floor system provider to the
automotive retail dealership industry. We sell and install porcelain tile
floors to automotive dealers. We sell shop floors, service drive floors
and showroom floors.
AutoStone was the pioneer in developing a floor tile that was designed for
shop floors that provided dealers with a permanent floor system for these
vital revenue generating areas of their dealerships. Previously, dealers
used (and still do) sealed concrete and/or epoxy coatings. These are
temporary coatings that last anywhere from 3-5 years.
With our permanent floor system solution, we provide dealers with a better
floor surface in aesthetics, cleanability, slip-resistance and life cycle.
For a little more upfront cost, dealers never have to go through the
process of resurfacing their shops again.
The aesthetic value of our floors also enhances the customer experience and
elevates the brands perception in the market place. It also helps attract
the critical "shop tech" who is part of the team that generates the most
revenue for a dealership. Quality "techs" generate a lot of revenue for
dealers and they choose to work in quality environments that look good, are
clean and are safe to work in.
Along the way, AutoStone successfully implemented our program with many
automotive brands so our floor system is used in service drives and
showrooms as well. Today, we support many areas in the dealership when it
comes to the tile solution. Dealers prefer to go with the permanent floor
surfaces and AutoStone is the preferred choice.
