The Gunneson Flooring Company was established
in 1954 by the father and son team of Mauritz and Bernt
Gunneson. That tradition carried on when Bernt's sons Gary,
who joined the company in 1986 and Lars, in 1993 joined
the team. A fourth Generation of Gunneson's has begun to
carry on this tradition of craftsmanship and knowledge.
