Meet The Team

We are a close-knit team at Nova Flex, passionate about creating “WOW” experiences for our Agents partners and customers. Delivering the unexpected in a delightful way to continually exceed expectations, push to be better, and to make things happen – which is why we are unique when it comes to service. We strive to brighten lives by doing the following:

We do what we say! How many times have your heard, we can do that and then it doesn’t happen? We are honest and upfront – always – it’s in our “Minnesota-nice” blood.

We make lighting easy! You only have so much time in a day, and we would love to give some back to you. Our quotes team will do the work for you, so you can focus on other priorities. When you get a project, just forward the details to our team and within 48 hours it will be waiting in your inbox – you can even take the credit for it. If you have a question, we are only a phone call away, no phone prompts to go through.

We deliver Customization quickly and accurately! Think back to the last time you were trying to save a project or keep a long-time customer happy, but you needed to find a last-minute solution for a product that was on backorder. We ship product that is customized in the US within 4 business days, so it’s ready to install upon arrival – even next day if needed!  

Products can be very similar, but service is what sets us apart. We guarantee superior service – FAST!
