Home News Galleher partners with Building Homes for Heroes

Santa Fe Springs, Calif.—Galleher LLC, the largest flooring distributor on the west coast and third largest in the United States, partnered with Building Homes for Heroes. This national non-profit organization recognizes the tremendous sacrifices of men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces by supporting the needs of severely wounded or disabled soldiers and their families. Building Homes for Heroes said it strives to build or renovate quality homes and gift the homes to severely injured veterans nationwide that are mortgage-free.

Galleher said it will be donating its signature GemCore flooring to be used in new and modified homes for injured veterans. GemCore is Galleher’s line of resilient flooring that has the beauty of hardwood or stone but is waterproof, scratch resistant and easy to maintain, according to the company.

“As a veteran myself, recognizing and giving back to injured veterans is a cause that is extremely important to me and my colleagues at Galleher,” said Ted Kozikowski, president and CEO of Galleher. “Our company is in a unique position to provide GemCore resilient flooring for use in new and refurbished homes for the injured veterans. Our floors are water and scratch resistant, so they will maintain their beauty with minimum care.”

Andy Pujol, founder and CEO of Building Homes for Heroes, added, “We are thankful for everyone at Galleher for their partnership to provide resilient flooring to our veterans’ homes. The support of companies like Galleher and its high-quality GemCore flooring products enable our organization to help more injured veterans in need and support them as they begin to rebuild their lives.”
