Company’s Innovative Counter and Cabinet Solution Minimizes Waste, Maximizes Source Reduction and Improves Bottom Lines.

The C-Flex system's revolutionary design utilizes fewer natural resources, and can be easily reconfigured and reused, providing business owners with unparalleled flexibility at a lower cost than traditional box counters.

"C-Flex is the most innovative counter system offered in decades. Pan-Oston is leading the way in innovative, green design," said Jim Vance, President of Pan-Oston.

Pan-Oston, innovators in the design and manufacture of retail checkout and merchandising display products, offers grocery stores, convenience stores, offices, restaurants and retailers the only cabinet and counter system that fully capitalizes on the “reduce” and “reuse” resource conservation strategies. The C-Flex system’s revolutionary design utilizes fewer natural resources, and can be easily reconfigured and reused, providing business owners with unparalleled flexibility at a lower cost than traditional box counters.

C-Flex's patent-pending, tubular steel frame design uses less wood and steel, and also offers three to four times more durability than a traditional millwork cabinet. Using a standard wood counter and cabinet system, a store remodel results in the existing system’s materials being entirely discarded – a costly and non-environmentally-friendly venture. Conversely, C-Flex’s unique frame can be reused for many remodels and, because only exterior panels or countertops are replaced for a new fixture appearance, landfill volume is reduced by up to 75%.    The LEED compatible and lightweight C-Flex system is shipped flat, requiring less shipping truck space and reducing diesel fuel emissions.

“C-Flex is the most innovative counter system offered in decades, an ideal solution for anyone looking to improve their bottom line and their store’s appearance,” said Jim Vance, President of Pan-Oston. “Pan-Oston is leading the way in innovative, green design. Suitable for a broad range of retail and office settings, C-Flex’s ‘out-of-the-box thinking’ applies to the product’s design, its business usage and its environmental sustainability.”

Designed and made in the U.S.A.,C-Flex is already installed in some of the world’s largest retailers. With C-Flex, remodeling costs can be reduced by up to 75%, which provides business owners the option of more frequent updates and subsequent compounding sales increases that can result from remodels. The modular system is versatile, easily configured and can also be expediently rearranged to accommodate new products and store layouts. With multiple cabinet and countertop options and a wide range of styles and surfaces C-Flex is suitable for a wide variety of retail merchandising usages, as well as in back offices, break rooms and mailrooms.

“C-Flex offers the best return on investment of any counter system, allowing stores to easily and inexpensively remodel or simply replace worn components, all without closing their doors,” said Vance. “Business owners really need to experience C-Flex first-hand. Those that have tell us how impressed and pleased they are to have this merchandising solution available.”

Pan-Oston is offering C-Flex demonstrations delivered directly to business owners’ stores and offices.     C-Flex Mobile Innovation Center visits can be scheduled by visiting the company’s website or calling 800-210-2302.
