When the Bucks chose to install a new Action Floor Systems court in the Milwaukee’s BMO Harris Bradley Center, Zaza Pachulia saw the opportunity to update the Tbilisi basketball camp floor and purchased the retired court from the facility’s management corporation. Action Floor Systems, a leading manufacturer of premium hardwood maple sports floors, partnered with the Golden State Warriors Center, Pachulia, to load, ship, and install the court in Pachulia’s native country of Georgia.
John Neil Byrnes, age 75, died peacefully on June 4, 2016, at Cottingham Hospice House in Seneca, SC.
While one of John’s early aspirations was to be “the best auto mechanic there ever was,” he quickly learned that he was an excellent salesman. His success soon translated into starting his own hardwood flooring business, Floors, Inc. Thirty-six years after starting that business, John was inducted into the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association Hall of Fame—an honor he was incredibly proud to receive.
It may be retired, but its work isn’t done just yet.
The hardwood court that has played home to a number of Milwaukee Bucks games will soon find its new home in Tbilisi, Georgia thanks to the work of NBA player Zaza Pachulia and Mercer, Wis.-based Action Floor Systems.
