About Us History



Associated Floors was founded in 1921 in Brooklyn, NY by the grandfathers of today’s owners, Frank Rosenberg and Richard Goodman. From a humble storefront, Associated has evolved into the national multi-location flooring specialist.



In 1922, Mr. Ward Melville asked the Associated founders to “linoleum” his fledging shoe store business, with a store in Brooklyn, the other in Chicago. That was the birth of Thom McAn Shoes. Thom McAn, along with their competitor Kinney Shoes were the largest national retail shoe chain outlets in America from the 1920’s through the 1990’s and Associated worked with them for 90 years and 60 years, respectively.

Associated Floors pioneered single source accountability for national retail store chains, covering over 180,000 stores and multi-location sites since its inception! Probably no other flooring company in America today can claim that accomplishment. Associated has grown, developing the only time-tested centralized single point of contact system for furnishing and installing floor coverings to America’s premier national retail chain store and national accounts clientele.
