Carpet Network Of Middletown And FCI Team Up For Better Service

Traveling floor and window store Carpet Network of Middletown announced today that they have recently joined forces with Floor Coverings International (FCI), a franchised shop-at-home flooring retailer. Local owners Greg Klink and Mike Erickson will keep their showroom, located at 254 Wisner Avenue, and knowledgeable staff on board, while gaining access to additional products and resources for their clients.

When Carpet Network closed their doors early this year, Tom Wood, president and CEO of FCI, realized that many of its franchise owners could struggle without the support of their franchisor. Wood decided to offer to convert their businesses to FCI franchises. The partnership is expected to benefit not only the former Carpet Network owners, but also their clients. With larger organizations come lower costs; additional vendors — like Armstrong, Emser, and Design Materials; a strong leadership and operations team; and a more aggressive field support program.

“Partnering with FCI gave us the opportunity to expand our already loyal customer base while still serving all with an expanded selection of products,” shares Greg Klink.
