Northport Flooring America had its beginnings in 1947 as the State Road Laundromat, owned and operated by Arthur J. Chamberlain. Seeking opportunities for growth, in 1952 Art branched out into rug cleaning; becoming State Road Rug Cleaning, and soon this became a mainstay of our business. Responding to repeated customer requests in 1963, State Road Rug Cleaning expanded again and became State Road Rug Cleaning and Carpet Sales. This proved to be highly successful for us and by 1969, we exited the rug cleaning business and became State Road Carpet. By emphasizing customer service, integrity in how we conduct our business and our customer’s knowledge that our workmanship is of the highest standard, our business continued to prosper. By 1973 State Road Carpet had outgrown its original location, so property was acquired near the intersection of Portage Trail and Northampton Road for a new building. In August, 1974 we moved into the new location and the business was renamed Northport Carpet, the name being derived from being in close proximity to the intersection of Northampton Road and Portage Trail. Continuing our careful attention to customer satisfaction, Northport Carpet continued to grow at a steady pace. In 1991, Art Chamberlain decided to retire and sold the business to two of his sales associates, Harold Musci and Derek Fay. Harold began his sales career with Northport in 1974 and currently serves as the President of the company. Derek began his career with Northport as a carpet installer in 1981, and transitioning to sales in 1985. He currently serves as Vice-President. Looking for a way to expand our product line and become a full service flooring company, Northport joined Flooring America in 1993. Utilizing the advantages of being a part of this outstanding organization, and continuing to build on our legacy of superior customer service, Northport Flooring America continues its steady growth. Northport Flooring America currently employs 11 professional sales and administrative personnel. Our associates have a length of service ranging from 2 years to 51 years. This long term commitment allows our dedicated staff to build solid, long lasting relationships with our customers.
