As the economy improves, and you start to dream about replacing that old flooring, look to G. Fried Flooring America, a locally owned and operated company for all of your flooring needs. G. Fried Flooring America is conveniently located at 9329 E. Adamo Dr. in Tampa.

G. Fried Flooring America is owned by longtime Valrico resident, Rufus Ashby. Ashby has a lifetime of experience in the flooring business.

At G. Fried Flooring America, you will find a well trained and experienced sales staff with over 20 years of experience. Ashby said, “We are a full-service flooring company that sells and installs our products. We are the area’s only Karastan Stainmaster Flooring Company which features Ultra Life carpet.” In addition, G. Fried Flooring America has designers on staff that will help you find choices that fit your lifestyle.

G. Fried Flooring America is committed to its customers from the time of sale through installation. G. Fried Flooring America is also committed to the environment. Ashby explained, “No carpet that we remove from a customer’s home or business will ever end up in a landfill.”

Ashby’s commitment to his customers extends to the community as a whole. Ashby is a long time member of the Rotary Club of Brandon ’86 and a member of the Board of Directors of the Brandon Chamber of Commerce. “I have lived in the Brandon community for over 25 years. I love the area and raised my family here. I care about this community and the people with whom I work. I shop local whenever possible and give back to the community whenever possible,” said Ashby.

Despite the recent economic downturn, G. Fried Flooring America is stronger than ever thanks in part to a merger with Sergenian’s, a Madison, Wisconsin based company. Ashby explained, “Sergenian’s has been in business since 1930. This brings a lot of stability to our company and makes us much stronger both financially and operationally. Through the merger, we are one of the top 50 independent retailers in the United States.”
