Home News John Patterson to assume presidency of 3 Rivers Flooring

West Helena, Ark.— 3 Rivers Flooring owner, Buddy Fuzzell, has announced that 40-year industry veteran, John Patterson, has accepted the position of President of the company.  “We feel fortunate that John has agreed to come out of semi-retirement to lead our 3-year old company,” says Fuzzell.  “His experience as a founder of a hardwood flooring startup, his executive positions in two of the largest flooring companies, and his relationship with key distribution and retail customers will be invaluable in 3 River’s growth.”

“Buddy is no newcomer to the hardwood industry and 3 Rivers is unique in that it is fully integrated from forest floor, to harvesting,  processing, pressing, molding and finishing,” states Patterson explaining the reason for accepting the position.  “This was an opportunity I just couldn’t turn down.”

Patterson continues, “Our plan is, together, to continue to grow 3 Rivers Flooring as a world class, made in the USA, manufacturer of engineered hardwood flooring, creating jobs for American workers and taking advantage of cost savings from vertical integration and offering quality and value throughout the channels to market.”
