Metroflor Corporation’s pioneering past dates back to 1912 when its founders opened a building materials distribution company in upstate New York. As the company evolved, its focus sharpened around flooring and they became the first to introduce pure, homogeneous vinyl floor tile. Since then, the company has devoted itself to leading the LVT category with new products, designs and manufacturing methods. Collectively, Metroflor’s brands represent the largest assortment of quality LVT in the industry today.
As the LVT specialists, Metroflor is in constant pursuit of the next innovation. Our appreciation for style, design and color knows no limits as we search the globe for floors that make a design statement while delivering outstanding performance qualities. LVT is the fastest growing flooring category – and for good reason. The design options are incredible: woodgrains with rich color, grain and texture and tiles with the look and feel of natural stone. Combine that with LVT’s other advantages which include durability, easy maintenance and a warmer, softer feel underfoot and you’ve got a winning combination.
The Metroflor family of brands is represented by a world-class network of independent distributors and an expanding network of independent retailers and contractors. Our products are ideal for any residential setting and are also suitable for commercial applications, including Retail, Healthcare, Assisted Living, Hospitality, Multi-Family, Corporate and Education.
