Santa Fe Springs, Calif.—Galleher, one of the top five flooring distributors in the U.S., has acquired Trinity Hardwood Distributors. Founded in 1977, Trinity is one of the largest suppliers of hardwood in Texas, with locations in every major Texas metroplex. Given the strength and longevity of the Trinity brand name in Texas, the company will maintain the essence of its brand and will be known as Trinity Hardwood, A Galleher Company.
“The addition of Trinity Hardwood to the Galleher family is a tremendously important step in Galleher’s long-term goal of expanding our geographic coverage to better serve the needs of our growing customer base,” said Ted Kozikowski, president and CEO of Galleher. “Trinity is a dominant player in Texas, and we are confident Jon Roy Reid (founder of Trinity Hardwood), and his team will play a critical role contributing to Galleher’s future growth objectives.”
With a heritage dating back to the founding fathers of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), 87 years of trading hardwood has made Trinity a leading distributor in the southwest. “The time was right for Trinity to combine forces with Galleher,” said Jon Roy Reid, a third-generation hardwood master and founder of Trinity Hardwood. “Galleher offers tremendous resources that will benefit our customers, plus they share an 80-plus-year heritage in the flooring industry. I’m sure my father and grandfather would both approve of this combination of like-minded companies.”
Trinity will play a strategic role for Galleher, the company said, as it continues to expand its geographic presence across the United States. Galleher recently acquired West Valley Hardwood in Washington, expanding Galleher’s presence to six western states. Now with the addition of Texas, Galleher said it is poised to meet the growing flooring needs of an expanded customer base across the entire western and southwest regions of the U.S.
Galleher now has more than 400 employees across the western and southwestern regions covering seven states with 30 locations. In addition to being a major distributor of flooring brands and installation services, Galleher offers three proprietary flooring brands covering a broad spectrum of flooring segments, including GemCore, Reward Flooring and Monarch Plank. Galleher will now offer Trinity proprietary brands including Trinity 7000 Flooring Adhesive and Texas Traditions.
