Merle B. Smith Company is our hardwood flooring, sand and finish supplies division based in Chicago, IL. 

Starting in 1971, Merle B. Smith was busy building one of the Midwest’s biggest wholesale distributors. Prior to founding his namesake business, Merle Smith worked directly for a hardwood mill. His love of the industry and of the product, prompted him to branch out on his own, and 40 years later, his vision is still going strong.

Our team of hardwood flooring professionals offer the best products and solutions to help complete your projects from start to finish.
