A very special leader in our organization has a favorite saying……… “We are in the people business! Oh yeah, we also sell flooring” To me that sums up everything we get up for each and every day.

People are what matter, and this group of mismatched Allstars come from every social, economical & cultural background and together we come together like some mutant superhero to serve our customer, our teammates and their families each and every day!
