    Sometimes where a person comes from, can tell a lot about where a person is going. The same can be said for businesses, especially small businesses. As our business grows and we forge more and more relationships with our great customers, we wanted to share a little about how we got started, where we want to go and how grateful we are to our employees and our customers for helping us succeed so far.

    In The Beginning

    As a small business, we know it takes meticulous attention to details and continuous improvement to stay productive.

    Continuous improvement and always searching for solutions has been a theme for our company, InSite Solutions (dba Stop-Painting), since 2001. After several years working for a rubber manufacturing company selling their products to contractors in the road marking industry, I saw a need and demand for a different product – one that no one was making. I started my own company, taking my road marking knowledge and applying it to indoor applications.

    The process of designing and developing our flagship Superior Mark® Floor Tape took several years. We had many “back-to-the-drawing-board” moments and an untold number of failed ideas and tests. But we never gave up and took what we learned to keep on trying and improving our products. Eventually, we hit upon the winning design for our tape that combines a thicker and more durable tape with a recessed adhesive area and beveled edges to help resist the heavy scraping that comes from industrial equipment – namely forklifts.

    Building On Our Hard Work and Success

    Located in Wake Forest, North Carolina, off to the races we went and we have been working ever since to continuously improve our product line. I credit all the years in the road marking business while competing against the innovative giant 3m and a Jack Welch book, “Straight from the Gut” for encouraging boundary-less thinking. It’s America and you can do anything if you put your mind to it.

    Today, Stop-Painting/InSite Solutions is the industry leader in offering resources and tools for visually instructive workplaces seeking to increase productivity and safety. With our superlative floor marking products and other adhesive solutions, we can make your business better.

    I am fortunate to have a caring, brilliant and patient wife to credit in building this business with me. She and I have truly come a long way -- from working out of our garage while holding two jobs with a newborn on the way! As any small business owner knows, there is no clock when it comes to success.

    I am blessed and have many people that have worked with me in the past and present that continue to help us grow our business to make sure we have an edge in the market. We truly love what we do and are proud of our accomplishments. We look forward to facing the future and continuing to be a leader in the facility marking and safety business. InSite Solutions holds three patents and has other patents pending.

    For many businesses, floor markings are a must for optimum productivity. This means using visual cues, signs and floor markings to direct employees and equipment in the most efficient and safe way, all in an effort to keep waste low and productivity high.

    The preceding pages described how to paint lines on a concrete floor (the most common floor surface in industrial settings), to create a visual organization system.

    Another option is using floor tape. This method is popular because companies frequently change paths or placements of floor markings as workflow needs change. For instance, if a company gets a new piece of equipment that must be added into the workflow, existing equipment is shifted to make room. This will usually create a need for updated floor markings.

    In addition to changing floor marking layouts, marked floors in a production facility –whether with paint or tape – are going to experience degradation due to equipment traffic and/or pallet dragging. So planning ahead on how these floors will be marked and maintained is a given to keep safety standards and productivity levels high.

    Repainting lines could take up to seven days and it is not an inexpensive endeavor. Floor tape can be easily applied, pulled up and reapplied to a new area or pathway or to repair damaged tape – making it a better solution than painting.

    Advantages of floor marking over painting lines are:

    • Less time for labor and installation
    • No costly shutdown during installation
    • No need for aggressive treatment of floor before application – which may damage floor
    • Ease of modification if lines need to be moved
    • Impactful messages can be applied to floor tape increasing the visual instruction value of the markings.

    Floor tape is a much more efficient process to implement and maintain. Most floor marking tape on the market is cheaply produced, costs about $5 a roll and easily stretches and tears.

    We believe that painting floors and using cheap vinyl tape is not the answer for companies looking to be efficient and productive. Our company was built around the idea that there is a better solution for marking floors. Our flagship product, Superior Mark™ floor tape, is the perfect solution. With patented beveled edges and a recessed adhesive, Superior Mark™ tape is more resistant to being pulled up by forklifts or dragging pallets than competing tapes. We manufacture Superior Mark™ tape in-house, using heavy duty PVC, which makes it dirt resistant, easy to clean and makes it easily removed in one piece. Competing tapes have an average of 3 mils thickness, while Superior Mark Tape is 32 mls thick.
