4th Annual Schmidt Custom Floors Golf Outing

Our fourth annual golf outing was last Tuesday. This event was co-hosted with Cat5 Restoration Company. It was a gorgeous day and the event was a success. We would like to thank all of our sponsors, vendors, and customers for coming and contributing to the day. This year all of our proceeds and company donations are going to the Make-A-Wish Wisconsin foundation and sponsoring the wish of a little girl, Vivian, who wishes to go to Disney World. We had a previous Wish Family come and speak to the group before they hit the course. Below is the link for the video Ironwood put together of all the golfers, sponsors, and workers. Thanks Ironwood Golf Course for hosting and capturing the day!


Merry Christmas!

This past Friday evening at the Marriott Milwaukee West we held our annual Schmidt Custom Floors Christmas party. Each year we gather all the employees and their significant others to celebrate another year of hard work. The snow was coming down steady this year, but that didn’t keep us from getting together! The hotel was a new location for our annual party, but it did not disappoint with its beautiful ballroom chandeliers, tasty buffet spread, and delicious decadent desserts. The format for the party began with dinner and was followed by our President, Tim Schmidt’s, company address and awards ceremony. The company gifted our president and vice president with an array of gift cards to some of their favorite restaurants, a family tree printed and placed on canvas and wood, and a large, sturdy cutting board. Each divisional manager presented the awards for their winning crew members/partners.  This year we played a fun employee trivia game for prizes donated by our Holiday Party Sponsors.

We are blessed and eager to get everyone together around the holidays to celebrate the work and efforts displayed from all levels throughout the year. Without the people and group as a whole we would not be the business we are today. Our numbers are up and we couldn’t be happier about the growth and unity we have as a company.

From all of us at Schmidt Custom Floors, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!



It’s the little things…

It’s the little things that mean the most sometimes. Our Athletic Division crews over the summer worked in Beardstown, IL and installed a new synthetic gym floor for First Christian Church. The gym was greatly welcomed and appreciated by all, and especially by the 2nd Grade class. We received this thank you note (shown below) from the second graders and their teacher. It was such a sweet and kind gesture that doesn’t happen all too often in the gym floor business. We couldn’t help but want to share this act of thoughtfulness.

2016 Milwaukee Heart & Stroke Run/Walk

Team Schmidt Custom Floors- 2016 Milwaukee Heart & Stroke Walk/5K Fun Run

This past Sunday morning Schmidt Custom Floors employees, as well as their families, gathered together to walk for a cause.  Anyone who was willing and able could come downtown to Veterans Park in Milwaukee for the Walk/5K Fun Run. We had close to 40 participants this year join and support our team. It was a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning on the lakefront for the event. SCF has donated and worked with the American Heart Association for the past two years. Thank you to everyone who supported the event. We enjoy participating in and supporting such a local, great cause!
