In 1962 Ben Messner started selling carpet from the back of a wood-paneled station wagon. He quickly established a reputation for providing first-rate service, honest dealings, and uncompromising quality. Today, Ben's sons Peter and Greg Messner, and Peter's sons Jack and Ted keep the Messner Tradition alive with a committment to quality, honesty, community and respect.

“Part of the tradition that my father instilled in all of us was to treat everyone with respect. That has served as the foundation of our business for all of these years, and I think it’s why we’ve been successful.” - Greg Messner, Messner Flooring
