Anderson Hardwood Floors has appointed the Sorce Inc. division of Kraus Carpet Mills to distribute Anderson products. Sorce, headquartered in Clarion, Pa., will distribute Anderson Hardwood Floors and Virginia Vintage in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, and Delaware, as well as in Upstate New York, eastern Ohio, northern West Virginia, and Southern Connecticut.

"Sorce is in a very aggressive growth mode right now, as is Anderson, and the timing could not be better to begin this partnership," said Sorce Executive Vice President Dave Mumford. "We are extremely proud to bring Anderson Hardwood Floors and Virginia Vintage into our market area. "Anderson's commitment to the major buying groups and professional independent retailers, and its condemnation of the online e-tailers coincides perfectly with the business philosophy practices of Sorce," Mumford added. "Anderson Hardwood Floors is the leader in innovation and quality and we are looking forward to representing them."

"Sorce's commitment to customer service and their reputation for aggressive penetration in their markets make them the perfect distributor addition to the Anderson Family," said Tim Tompkins, Anderson's vice president of Sales & Marketing.

Sorce maintains warehouses in Clarion, Pittsburgh, and Hazleton, Penn., Buffalo, N.Y., North Canton, Ohio, and Baltimore. Founded in 1953, Sorce is one of several full-line distribution centers in North America owned and operated by Kraus.
