Papineauville, Quebec, Canada—Lauzon expanded its U.S. distributor partnership with Galleher by adding Floor Service Supply Co., a Galleher division based in San Jose, Calif.
“This is a welcome addition to our distribution network,” said Mario Bergamin, vice president of sales, Lauzon. “Galleher is one of the largest specialty hardwood flooring distributors in California, Arizona and Nevada. They have a knowledgeable, experienced and well-respected sales, logistical and support team. Our goal is always to associate ourselves with the very best – and adding this outstanding organization is a perfect fit for us.”
Established in 1932, Floor Service Supply Co. was acquired by Galleher in 2008. Galleher now services some 1,000 customers in northern California and northern Nevada through strategic distribution centers in San Jose and Sacramento.
Central activity is supported from a 45,000 sq. ft. facility in San Jose. “This main branch is supported with customer service, sales, credit, purchasing—all the typical functions of a major distributor,” said Randy Wallace, sales manager, Galleher. “We specialize in hardwood flooring and that’s what sets us apart from the competition. With the addition of Lauzon’s flooring collections to our northern California supply chain, we can offer the lines at all eleven Galleher locations”.
The partnership is well positioned to keep the respective brands maintained and growing, officials said.
