Buford, Ga., Nov. 23, 2022 –– C.A.S.E. Discount Flooring has expanded their company, which will result in 15 new jobs and $1.2 million capital investment in the City of Buford over the next 10 years. The vinyl flooring distributor moved into a 2,200-square-foot facility at 5306 Palmero Court, increasing production by 10%.
“We chose the City of Buford as our next place to expand because it is one of the fastest growing areas in the country,” said C.A.S.E. Discount Flooring Buford Franchise Owner Derek Harm. “We can service more customers in this area who have a need for what we offer.”
Although C.A.S.E. Discount Flooring Founder Edward Flanary began working in the luxury vinyl flooring industry as a hobby after his retirement, he quickly discovered a market need for an affordable and quality product. The company, headquartered in North Carolina, currently has 26 employees at 21 locations throughout the Northeast and South and has sold more than 1 million square feet since 1998.
“Similar to C.A.S.E. Discount Flooring, Gwinnett County believes in delivering superior services,” said Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chairwoman Nicole Love Hendrickson. “We commend their expansion, supporting our vision as the preferred community where everyone thrives.”
