Johnson Hardwood Floors partners with Gilford-Johnson

Home News Johnson Hardwood Floors partners with Gilford-Johnson

City of Industry, Calif.—Johnson Hardwood Floors is making a major change in its distribution policy in a large part of its trading area. The company will turn over its direct distribution dealers to Gilford-Johnson Flooring in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and parts of Mississippi, effective July 2.

The partnership with Gilford-Johnson was forged when it acquired Johnson Hardwood Floors’ current distributor in Florida, Mastercraft Flooring Distributors. Johnson’s two companies were a good fit right from the start, and all of the planning with Gilford-Johnson centered around the singular goal to improve the level of service and representation of Johnson Hardwood to its existing customer base.

Jon Ousley, a nine-year Johnson Hardwood veteran, will assume the role of distributor account manager with the primary role to help Gilford-Johnson manage and grow its dealer base. Ousley will strive for a seamless transition.

“Gilford-Johnson is thrilled to have the opportunity to handle the Johnson Premium business in our entire footprint,” said Jodie Doyle, vice president of product management, Gilford-Johnson. “We sincerely appreciate and respect the job their people have done in each market and our hope is to continue that progress. Everyone at GJ is appreciative of the opportunity and excited to get started.”
