Karndean DesignFlooring recently celebrated the grand opening of its expanded U.S. headquarters in the Pittsburgh suburb of Export, Pa.

“Since breaking ground on the project in late 2014, we have greatly anticipated the day when our vision would become reality,” said Larry Browder, CEO of the company. “I am proud to say that this project has achieved everything we had hoped, and more. Thanks to the hard work of everyone who helped in the development and construction of the building, our ability to support the needs of our customers is stronger than ever. We look forward to sharing this celebration with all those who have helped us along the way.”

The company says an expansive new warehouse addition doubles the inventory capabilities of the facility and can meet customer demand across the country within a few days. The redesigned facility features cutting-edge lighting technology, daylight harvesting in the warehouse and flow-through shipping and receiving to streamline operations. An in-house production department employs a skilled team that cuts and packages some products. Fundamental marketing materials, including premium point-of-sale samples, and consumer take home samples also are produced on site.

The project also included a redesigned showroom that features the company's entire product portfolio, a specifier library for commercial projects and design ideas.

“This showroom has been designed as a value-added service to our retail and commercial partners here in the Pittsburgh area,” said Browder. “It is here as a design resource for them to use with their customers to create beautiful designflooring.”
