Back in the early 70’s, Grandpa was a farmer and ran sheep and dairy cows at the family farm “Greystoke” at Marehemo near Maungaturoto in the Kaipara district.

In 1972 Grandpa bought a small floor sanding company from Robert Grimmer in Wellsford. He sanded and coated wooden floors in many notable buildings all over the Rodney and Kaipara districts from Governor Greys Mansion House on Kawau Island, The Mahurangi College gymnasium, many town halls from Coatesville to Dargaville and everywhere else from the DOC houses on Little Barrier Island to Tahpareepi Hospital in Devonport.

He also had interests in forestry and milling work, with his son Lincoln (current director of Floorex Ltd) running this side of the business throughout the 80’s & 90’s.

During the 90’s wood flooring rose in popularity. Traditionally builders had always liked to install the wood flooring themselves but with the rise in need for specialist skills in dealing with moisture issues relating to concrete subfloors, underfloor heating systems and rising quality expectations, many preferred to leave it to a specialist and that’s when the supply and installation of solid wood floors became our main line.

So here we are today, with the 3rd generation being involved, we have over 45 years of experience in the industry and are still incredibly passionate about installing beautiful wooden floors in our clients homes.
