BALTIMORE, MD. -- Fishman Flooring Solutions, a leading distributor of flooring and flooring installation supplies, has opened a branch in Louisville, KY. The new facility will enable Fishman to serve the greater Louisville and Lexington, KY, markets and pave the way for the company to expand into Indiana at some point.

“At Fishman, we take a very strategic approach to expansion,” said Fishman Vice President Shane Richmond, who oversees operations for the company. “Our goal is to move into markets with high growth potential, such as Louisville and Lexington, which are adjacent to our footprint. We believe that is when and where we can best differentiate our business with our wide range of flooring and flooring installation products and our exceptional customer service.”

Fishman’s newly opened 30,000-square-foot facility is located at 13010 Forest Centre Court in Louisville. In addition to its warehouse, the branch will feature a new customer-friendly showroom that will allow Fishman to showcase its full complement of flooring products, installation tools and supplies. The branch will be managed by Matthew Keller, who has extensive experience in the Louisville and Lexington flooring markets.

In addition to its new Louisville, KY, branch, Fishman has opened branches in Knoxville, TN; Nashville, TN; Savannah, GA; and Birmingham, AL, over the past five years. During that same time period, Fishman expanded its Columbus, OH, branch and warehouse; increased space at its Baltimore headquarters; and relocated its Charlotte, NC, branch to a larger building. The company now has 39 branches and does business in 15 states and the District of Columbia.
