The Style and Beginnings of Anderson Hardwood
The very beginnings of what you know of today as Anderson Hardwood started off in 1946, as Standard Plywoods, Inc. Founded by L.W. Anderson, also nicknamed “Andy”. Standard Plywoods was based in the Carolinas and ever since then Anderson has been committed to manufacturing high-quality hardwood flooring consistently, and most importantly, in the United States. The family business has grown steadily over the years, with successive generations eagerly coming on board to run the company. Andy, and his son Bob, bought Modernwood and its facilities and moved the company to Clinton, SC, in 1958.
Today, Anderson is owned by Shaw Industries, one of the world’s leading floor covering manufacturers. Shaw Industries is based in Georgia, and is a $4 billion Berkshire Hathaway company with more than 22,000 employees! Both companies share American values such as honesty, integrity, and passion, which allows them to fit perfectly together. Their partnership thrives in innovation and craftsmanship. Don Finkell, part of the Anderson family remains CEO and an active participant in the business operations.
