From humble beginnings in 1980, in the workshop of Mr. Marcel Mercier, the seeds of innovation were planted to revolutionize the finishing process for hardwood flooring. Using experiences gained as a cabinet-maker, Marcel worked tirelessly to create a factory-finished wood floor that could withstand generations of footsteps.

Advancements in process and materials meant that consumers no longer needed to endure the inconveniences of hardwood floors being sanded and finished on-site.  For years Mercier Wood Flooring has been recognized as an industry leader in factory finished flooring. Upon completion of the refinements of the finishing process, Mercier embarked on projects to effectively secure and streamline the manufacturing and raw materials pipeline. Vertically integrated, our dedicated hardwood sawmill completed in 2001, provides 100% of the raw materials used by Mercier Wood Flooring. Designed to maximize the growing trend for wider widths, our sawmill has the flexibility to generate the widths required by the market demand. With superior product quality, excellence in service and supply, and unmatched product values, distributors and retailers across North America continue to recognize the outstanding product opportunities provided by Mercier Wood Flooring. Innovation, Tradition… Perfection!
