CLEVELAND, OH, Dec. 22 -- Cleveland-based KeyCorp is one of the nation’s largest bank-based financial services companies, with assets of approximately $93.8 billion. Key companies provide investment management, retail and commercial banking, consumer finance, and investment banking products and services to individuals and companies throughout the United States. For the renovation of the Key Bank Café for employees at headquarters, the team chose Aspecta for meeting all the flooring guidelines they had set: Durability, Thickness, Cleanability (no-wax) and most importantly, Reliability -- getting the product on time. Aspecta delivered on all fronts! Following are some quotes from the Key Bank Café team.

“Aspecta makes the Key Bank Café space feel much warmer. Especially for the flooring in the large atrium area, it’s just a great brown color – not too cool or warm in temperature, and neutral yet striking. It looks so beautiful when installed. That Aspecta is a no-wax floor was crucial to the client – and being able to get quick turnaround from order to on-time delivery was a huge factor as well. We’ll definitely consider using Aspecta again.”  - Erica Shafer, Vocon

“Aspecta is very user friendly -- our installers definitely approve it, and they have to like what they’re using.” - Ron Mikels, Architectural Floors of Cleveland

“When Key Bank did a complete remodeling of the Café, aesthetically they wanted something more modern and less institutional. The difference between the previous linoleum floor and Aspecta is Night and Day – Aspecta is an amazing floor. It’s holding up well to a lot of foot traffic – the quality of the product can’t be beat.” -Chuck Fairfield, General Manager, Sodexo/Key Bank Café
