Carpetland Celebrates 70th anniversary
Cincinnati, OH -- Carpetland Carpet One celebrated 70 years in business on Oct. 22, 2016, with a party, and a video featuring its employees.
“We have grown to become among the top 15 largest independently owned flooring retailers in the country,” Ken Weisbacher, president and owner, told a crowd of about 250 employees and guests.
Kurt Weisbacher, Ken’s father, began the company as a commercial floor-cleaning business after returning from service in WWII in 1946. He would be very proud of, and likely did not imagine, the presence Carpetland and its sister companies would come to have as a full-service flooring retailer in Southwestern Ohio, Columbus and Northern Kentucky, Ken said.
Carpetland has benefited from great leaders, including Vice President Steve Contois, who joined the company as sales manager in 1978. But equally important is a great team of employees, dedicated to doing their best work, and helping their co-workers do their best work, Ken said.
The celebration was held at The American Sign Museum in Camp Washington, OH.
