Our History

Boone Distributors, Inc. began in 1992 with a goal to improve service to the flooring industry. After many years in floor covering supply distribution, Bob Boone Sr. believed that more could be done to offer quality products with superior service throughout central Florida. Along with his wife Pauline, their two sons Glenn & Bob Jr. and fellow visionary Jay Turck a family business was born.

From humble beginnings in a 2,000 square foot warehouse in Lakeland, Florida delivering only carpet pad and supplies, we opened our second warehouse in Sarasota in 1996 to better cover the west coast. Jacksonville followed in 1998, greatly expanding our service area to include Tallahassee and southern Georgia.

In 1999 we expanded to Orlando, joining forces with longtime family friend Greg Taylor to bring our signature level of service to the local Orlando market. Two years later we moved further south adding Fort Myers in 2001 to help us reach the southwest Florida flooring customers beyond Sarasota.
