Galleher Expands Trinity Hardwood Presence in Texas
Galleher, LLC, the third largest flooring distributor in the US is significantly expanding its presence in Texas to support its acquisition of Trinity Hardwood Distributors in September 2021. Trinity has opened two new locations in Houston to not only better serve Trinity’s growing customer base in Texas, but to set the stage for significant expansion across the US for Trinity and Galleher customers. Trinity will open a traditional branch and showroom in North Houston’s Spring, TX area, and a 100,000 ft. warehouse facility in central Houston. Both these locations will be geared to provide expanded service in Texas, plus become a critical distribution center for customers across the US.
“In the short time since we acquired Trinity,” said Ted Kozikowski, CEO of Galleher, “they have demonstrated time and time again, why they are the top flooring distributor in Texas. It is important for Galleher to continue to support the Trinity team and provide the resources necessary for them to continue to grow and service customers.”
“Houston is a critical market for Trinity and by expanding our presence to this important city, we’ll be able to meet the expanding flooring needs of our growing customer base,” said, Jon Roy Reid, President, and Founder of Trinity Hardwood. “Our partnership with Galleher has been extremely beneficial for Galleher customers and vice versa. We’re excited to have our new warehouse in Houston serve as the linchpin for Galleher expansion eastward.”
Trinity’s new full-service branch in Spring TX which will support flooring retailers, flooring contractors and commercial contractors (through Galleher’s commercial flooring division, Galleher Commercial) will include warehouse space, offices, a showroom, and will-call area. The branch will be a one-stop shop for all commercial and residential flooring needs offering Galleher’s proprietary hardwood brands Monarch Plank and Reward Flooring, as well as key flooring and installation brands like Boen, Bona, Bostick, DuraSeal, Franklin (Titebond) and Norton.
The new 100,000-foot warehouse in central Houston will become the major distribution hub for Galleher and Trinity customers across the south, Midwest, and eastern regions. The warehouse will include unfinished and prefinished hardwood, sundries, a 4,000 ft. design center, and an equipment repair shop.
In addition to these two new locations in Houston, Trinity branch locations in Texas include Dallas, Austin, and Haltom City.
