Founded in 1974, Longust has evolved into a major wholesale flooring distributor with a presence in the southwestern U.S., serving California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and west Texas, with a wide range of flooring products.

The anniversary celebrations were held at Tropicana Hotel in Laughlin, Nev., where employees were treated to a buffet and chances to win numerous prizes, including a trip to Hawaii.
