Home News Haines opens Wheeler Supplies Center in Orlando

Glen Burnie, Md. — Haines announced the grand opening of the Wheeler Supplies Center in Orlando on Aug. 22. This is Haines’ first Supplies Center opening and the beginning of Haines-Flooring Supplies Division expansion into the Florida market.

Haines began the new supplies division when it acquired Allied Products in early 2013 and then grew the division when it acquired CMH Space and Ellis Flooring in early 2014. Haines now operates 26 Supplies Centers throughout the Mid Atlantic and Southeast.

“Our goal is to become the premier flooring supplies company within our territory. This will not happen overnight,” said Bruce Zwicker, CEO. “We will achieve our goal through acquisition, organic growth, greenfield expansion of supplies centers, and building the best supplies team and business model that we can. We are new to the supplies business and have a lot to learn and do.”

The Wheeler Supplies business has employed a very knowledgeable team of four, led by Jed Collins, sales manager, Flooring Supplies, to start the Florida expansion. Collins has been a sales leader at Wheeler since the acquisition of Wheeler by Haines in 2007. The Wheeler Supplies Center is stocked with a broad array of flooring installation tools and supplies to meet the expectations of flooring contractors and flooring dealers. In addition, the current flooring supplies available to Wheeler floor covering dealers will be expanded and sold by the existing team of Wheeler account executives.
