Customer Name: Hilliard’s Chocolates

Customer Location: North Easton, MA

Customer Needs: A decorative floor finish in the back of the house, and a durable floor that can stand up to the rigors of chocolate manufacturing


Headquartered in North Easton Massachusetts, Hilliard’s Chocolates had been creating their exquisite candy in the same “Kitch-In-Vue Candy Store” that they had been using since 1950. As the need for space increased, they had commissioned a new facility to be built on the property. After meeting with the contractor, New England Floor & Wall and Hilliard’s’ agreed upon two separate systems; a decorative flake finish flooring system for the back of the house, and a ¼” epoxy resurfacer for the manufacturing area, with the caveat being that the entire floor would be installed over plywood.
