About Summa Solutions
Summa Solutions was established to assist interior design project managers with manufacturing, to ensure expectations are met exactly as needed with no time consuming hiccups. The up’s and down’s of our 14 years experience in the casework business has prepared us to know where the roadblocks, hurdles, and bottlenecks are and absolve them before they come up. Summa offers a complete solution to issues that most of our competitors struggle to overcome.
Summa foresaw a demand in complimentary products as European designs and colors have gained popularity in the United States. Offering Ostermann in the US market eliminates the traditional long lead times and high purchase minimums associated with all other standard edgetape companies. Our local stock of these unique colors allows the mill-worker to purchase much smaller quantities (75M).
Another trend that Summa has been ahead of, is the high gloss panel market. We have teamed up with Infragloss to offer their high gloss, scratch resistant, professional product line throughout the US. This has become widely popular in the cosmopolitan metro cities, and now we’re seeing the trend continue thru other smaller pockets of the country.
Summa offers same day shipping on all products stocked in our SC warehouse.
