hours, the floor was ready to be walked on, and it was fully cured in 7 days. After a quick clean-up removing the protective plastic, the crew completed their mission and could drive off into the night. Shift Work SI Linings started out in the coatings business around 2001 by spraying truck beds. But when the economy fell, their bed-lining business all but disappeared. "We went from spraying 12 truck beds a week to spraying nothing," Puckett explained. They knew they needed to find other work to make up for what they were suddenly missing, and, with help from Rhino Linings, they started working on commercial jobs. "It worked really well for us, and we've been hammering away since," he continued. Instead of getting rid of the truck bed-lining setup back at their headquarters, they kept it open and purchased a mobile set to work on commercial sites, too. They brought their 14-foot (4 m) box truck to the Greenville job, and because of their 100-foot (31 m) hoses, they were able to keep all of the heavy equipment secured inside and ready to move at a moment's notice. Now, this crew, which at one point was struggling to find enough work with just the truck bed-linings business, is able to flourish by offering both brick and mortar and mobile systems. It just goes to show that being flexible with schedules and projects may bring any crew a feast fit for a king. Or at the very least, it may bring the Southeastern Industrial Linings crew a feast from their happy customer at the Court Square Café!
