A private label line of hardwood flooring is also available.

The company is owned and operated by Jack Wilcox, past president and founding member of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA). Wilcox has also been president of the Southern California Floor Covering Club (SCFCC). He runs the company with his son Brent.
