Horizon Forest Products was founded in 1993. The company employed eight employees in a 20,000 square foot facility located off of Hwy 70 near Raleigh-Durham International Airport in Raleigh, NC. At that time, the company carried about 200 SKUs. Over the years, Horizon Forest Products’ goal has remained unchanged from their inception 20 years ago: To provide the best products and the best service to our customers and to help them be successful.
Today, Horizon Forest Products employs over 150 team members and is a top distributor of products for hardwood flooring contractors and custom cabinetmakers in the southeast, carrying well over 4,000 SKUs. The company currently services areas around Beltsville, MD; Richmond, Norfolk and Sterling, VA; Raleigh, Wilmington, Greensboro, and Charlotte, NC; Charleston, SC.
Horizon Forest Products provides premium materials to cabinetmakers and hardwood flooring contractors and is particularly proud to offer one of the largest selections of exotic and hard-to-find pine flooring. In 2007, the company moved into their new 101,640 square foot building. The facility is located at 4115 Commodity Parkway in Raleigh and was built in conjunction with Duke Realty Corporation. The new building allows Horizon Forest Products to better serve their clients by carrying a larger and more diverse inventory.
In that same year, Horizon Forest also partnered with Long Floor. Long was founded in 1937 when John Long opened J.P. Long Floor Supply, Co., a Porter Cable sanding equipment and sundries distributorship. In 1947, a 19-year old Alfred Lewis joined the company as a mechanic in the repair shop. Al became a most respected salesman and friend to hardwood flooring professionals in the Mid-Atlantic region. Al Lewis purchased the company in 1978 and changed the name to Long Floor Supply. Inc. This partnership has allowed both companies to offer customers one of the most comprehensive inventories of pre-finished and unfinished hardwood flooring, floor equipment, abrasives, finishes, fasteners, and accessories in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Horizon Forest Products and Long Floor became two great companies providing one exceptional customer service experience. With over 75 years’ of industry experience, Horizon Forest Products and Long Floor leveraged their positions within the hardwood industry in order to ensure that their customers continue to receive the highest quality, most hard-to-find hardwood products available in the market. In September of 2012, the decision was made that both companies would operate under the Horizon Forest Products name.
