Our history has a humble beginning, starting in 1954 when the company's founder, Ray Williams, started out by peddling hardwood from his truck. With little money and no warehouse, his truck was loaded at the mill and then hand unloaded at individual job sites. Ray literally went from one new housing allotment to another until empty, then back to the mill to reload. His philosophy- a quality product at a fair price and with uncompromising service has set the stage for nearly 60 years and counting.
Today the company employs on average 25 full-time and several part-time and seasonal employees and since 1978, has been under the leadership of Jim Leslie, the company's president. Jim believes the company's greatest asset is its employees and their years of experience in the flooring business.
Our people know hardwood. The average Williams' employee has more than 12 years industry experience - that is a total of over 320 years of staff expertise in hardwood. Chances are very, very good that we've already dealt with your flooring situation or need. Williams Flooring continues to be the leader in the hardwood flooring field.
Over 80% of our business comes from referrals. Many Williams customers have trusted us to handle their flooring needs for decades. We are now working with 3rd generation customers who grew up on their grandparent’s hardwood floors. We use no outside contractors; only in-house staff who are bonded and insured for the customer’s peace of mind.
