This year, FlorStar is proud to celebrate 30 years of business. The company has grown and changed with the times and our industry, resulting in the transformation from a flooring distributor to a multifaceted flooring solutions company. Floor Trends sat down with FlorStar President Scott Rozmus to learn how the company has expanded its capabilities, product and service offerings and technologies through the last three decades to become an industry powerhouse.
SR: FlorStar’s roots date back to the 19th century as the firm grew out of the wholesale floor covering division of the retailer Carson Pirie Scott & Co. In the 1980s Carson’s chose to exit wholesale floor covering distribution and spun FlorStar off to a management team. Our current owner was a lead member of the team. FlorStar always has been headquartered in the Chicagoland area, but the firm has moved its main warehouse and office location over the years as the business evolved and grew. Today, we are headquartered in Romeoville, Ill., and provide service for customers across the U.S., with the majority of our focus occurring in a 10-state region in the Midwest.
