A New Vision

Developing Industry-Leading Products with Unparalleled Customer Service

National Carpet Equipment changed their philosophy in 2007 with a vision to move from a single-channel company to a multi-channeled provider to the construction supply industry. Since 2007, National has changed the name to National Flooring Equipment and successfully launched several new products including a complete line of planetary grinders, advanced technology for battery ride on scrapers, as well as the safest and cleanest fuel burning propane rider in the industry.

We place an emphasis on research, innovation, developing of industry leading products. In addition, we restructured and re-educated our customer service department to provide sound application solutions and consultation to our distributors as well as end users. Most companies would be content with our success, however at National we continuously strive to engineer better products, improve upon old technology and provide industry leading customer service.

National Equipment Mission

A History of Service

Lloyd Anderson founded National on two basic principles; build quality equipment and support it with unparalleled customer service. Over the years the company may have changed names, but we have stayed consistent with our founding principles.

Evolving from a retail carpet supply center, National began designing and manufacturing equipment in the 1970s. Revolutionary tools such as the Measure Master, Mobil Lift, and dozens of others led National to once unimaginable heights.

In 1988, Marty Anderson (Lloyd’s son) took the reigns as President of National. Over the next two decades Marty utilized the twenty years of industry experience he gleaned from his father to elevate National to international recognition. National has emerged as the industry leader in walk-behind floor scraper technology, ride-on floor scraper technology with electric, propane and battery powered models, as well as concrete floor preparation and polishing equipment.

By 2007, the company was experiencing enormous growth. In order to allow the company to expand at the required levels, Marty invited experienced business partners to join in ownership. Since that time the company has relocated into a state-of-the art manufacturing facility and introduced twelve new products. Product innovation and customer service continue to be our priorities and it shows in our quality and customer support.
