Los Angeles—Fletco, one of Denmark’s leading carpet manufacturers, has named industry veteran Anthony Minite managing director of its new United States and Canadian operations. Minite, who successfully ran Bentley Prince Street for 11 years and ultimately was part of the team that purchased the company from its parent, Interface, in 2012, will lead a strategic plan to expand into the U.S. and Canada.

“We have been wanting to expand into the U.S. and Canada for some time, and we knew we needed someone with proven success in this market to lead us,” said Brian Jensen, president, Fletco. “Anthony has a reputation as a leader and his strengths and values align perfectly with those of Fletco. We believe this expansion, under his leadership, will be a tremendous success.”

Minite cited Fletco’s rich history and legacy of products as a key draw. “The company is forward thinking with a commitment to innovation and responsible manufacturing, and I truly believe our product offerings will invigorate this marketplace. Together with our strategic partners, we have the passion and ability to design innovative products to meet the demand of our end users and exceed expectations.”

Fletco plans to partner with Spartan Surfaces and Sustainable Surfaces to expedite its expansion in the marketplace. Fletco Carpets will officially launch at NeoCon East in Philadelphia next month. The expansion will begin simultaneously throughout the United States and Canada starting with Spartan Surfaces on the East Coast, Southeast and part of the Midwest and Sustainable Surfaces on the West Coast. Both partners have extensive experience and success in their respective markets.
