Santa Fe Springs, California-Galleher, one of the top five flooring distributors in the US, has acquired Trinity Hardwood Distributors. Founded in 1977, Trinity is one of the largest suppliers of hardwoods in Texas, with locations in every major Texas metroplex. Given the strength and longevity of the Trinity brand name in Texas, the company will retain 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 hugely important step in Galleher’s long-term goal to expand our geographic coverage to better serve the needs of our growing customer base,” said Ted Kozikowski, president and CEO of galler. “Trinity is a dominant player in Texas and we are confident that Jon Roy Reid (founder of Trinity Hardwood) and his team will play a critical role in contributing to Galleher’s future growth goals.”
With a heritage dating back to the founding fathers of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), 87 years of hardwood trading have made Trinity a leading distributor in the Southwest. “The time was right for Trinity to join 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, and they share an experience of more than 80 years 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 in 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 throughout the western and southwestern regions of the US
Galleher now has more than 400 employees in the Western and Southwestern regions in 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 own brands, including Trinity 7000 Flooring Adhesive and Texas Traditions.
