HISTORY/COMPANY OVERVIEW

Somerset is a Privately Owned Company with over 20 Years Growth in the Hardwood Industry. We are experts in the wood business, building a strong reputation for manufacturing quality Appalachian lumber and unfinished flooring for many years prior to entering into the manufacture of prefinished flooring. From the outset, we made a major commitment to produce the finest quality prefinished flooring—from our investment in machinery, materials, and processes, to the recruiting and hiring of skilled employees. As demand for our prefinished flooring has seen significant growth, we have expanded to multiple manufacturing facilities in Somerset, Burnside, and Munfordville, Kentucky.

Strategically Positioned to Manufacture the Finest Flooring

Somerset manufactures flooring from the finest natural hardwood resource in America—Appalachian hardwood. With corporate headquarters in Somerset, Kentucky, and manufacturing facilities in central Kentucky, the heart of the Appalachian timberlands, our company is strategically positioned to give you the finest quality.

Vertically Integrated—from the Forest to the Finished Product

Somerset processes millions of board feet of lumber a year. Throughout our operations, including our own lumber manufacturing, and drying, milling, and finishing of hardwood flooring, we maintain control over the entire process. This is an important reason we are able to consistently produce quality products that we can be proud of and you can be confident in.

State-of-the-Art Facilities and Quality People

To achieve the uncompromising high quality standards that we make mandatory for our flooring, we continually invest in the most modern manufacturing equipment, paved lumberyards, computer-controlled dry kilns, state-of-the-art finishing lines, and dedicated employees. We believe that it’s our skilled and dedicated employees that ultimately make the difference in our products, service, and reputation.

Wood is an Environmentally Sound Choice

Somerset flooring is an environmentally sound choice because trees are a renewable and sustainable resource. You can trust that maintaining healthy and productive forests are our priority—not only are they essential to the world where our children are growing up, but our jobs, and the livelihood of hundreds of Somerset employees and their families depends on our forests. We support the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, requiring us to be responsible stewards of our managed timberlands by meeting independently established and monitored objectives on an ongoing basis. In fact, our commitment to this initiative is such a priority, that we are one of only a few major manufacturers to have a full-time forestry staff.
