Mercier Wood Flooring - Hardwood Flooring Reimagined

One thing Mercier Wood Flooring has known from the moment they began - in 1980 - is that while flawless and high-quality products are absolute necessities toward long-term success, they aren’t the only things that matter. Equally important to Mercier is its focus on customer satisfaction, innovation and a reputation for trailblazing in the hardwood flooring industry, all while maintaining sincere respect for the environment.

With all of these elements in place, it’s no wonder that Mercier has become a global leader of some of the finest hardwood flooring available.

From Humble Beginnings

Mercier Wood Flooring began in 1980, by Marcel Mercier, a cabinet-maker who would begin to lay the groundwork for a new approach to the finishing process for hardwood flooring. Using his experience as a cabinet-maker, Mercier knew he could make an impact in the flooring industry. What was Mercier’s hope? He wanted to create a factory-finished floor that could handle generations of footsteps without the need for major repair or replacement. Not only would this eliminate a customer’s need to incur maintenance costs, but it would also positively impact the environment (a notion that was never too far from the consciousness of the Mercier family).

Never letting go of his vision, Mercier helped to revolutionize the finishing process, which allowed consumers to enjoy a hardwood floor that was sanded and finished before it ever made its way to their home.

But Mercier wasn’t done there.

Once he finished his masterpiece, he moved on to finding a way to make flooring far more eco-friendly than it was. His work and vision helped turn Mercier Wood Flooring’s sawmill into the source of 100% of the company’s raw materials.

This places Mercier among the leaders in the use of raw materials, recycling renewable energy sources, and the reduction of atmospheric emissions. In fact, in 2005, Canada Natural Resources rewarded Mercier Wood Flooring with the title of “Energetical Industrial Innovator.”
