Wood Pro, Custom Wholesale Floors expand into LVT with FreeFit
Auburn, Mass.—Wood Pro, headquartered here, and its affiliate Custom Wholesale Floors, headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla., have signed exclusive agreements to distribute FreeFit LVT throughout their territories. The combined distributorships, which previously focused on wood flooring, operate out of 12 locations and service territories spanning between Maine and Connecticut in the Northeast and from North Carolina to Florida in the Southeast.
“Adding FreeFit allows us to differentiate ourselves from the competition in a market segment that is growing,” said Tony Benvenuti, CEO, Wood Pro/Custom Wholesale Floors. “We couldn’t ignore LVT any longer, but we didn’t want a commodity product. As experts in wood flooring, we have already established a customer base that will see the complimentary nature of an easy-to-install, waterproof floor.”

The partnership followed IVC US’s announcement of its plans to build the largest LVT plant in North America. “Their investment coupled with the strength of Denver Hardwood is sure to be a winning combination,” Farnsworth said.
