Florcraft Carpet One Floor and Home Celebrates New Ownership
ALASKA: Florcraft Carpet One has been acquired by Patrice Case of Fairbanks, and Evan Hall and Aaron Lautaret of Anchorage, partners in BHAG LLC.
With locations in Fairbanks and Anchorage, Florcraft has been an Alaska-owned family business since it was established in Fairbanks in 1962. In 1992, Florcraft became a member of the Carpet One Co-Op, a partnership with over 1,000 family-owned stores nationwide.
“It was important to me to carry on my family’s legacy”, says Patrice Case, who has served as Florcraft’s President for the past eight years. Case’s father, the late Robert Hanson, and his partner, Richard Wien, were the most recent owners of the company.
Evan Hall has served as Florcraft’s Vice President and Anchorage store manager since 2011. Aaron Lautaret has been a long-time Florcraft customer throughout his 20 years in the construction and commercial property management industries.
“Now is the time! Things are looking up for Alaskans and we want to be there to help make their home improvement dreams come true,” says Hall. “Our plan is to broaden our inventory to become a complete Home Improvement Center. A perfect example is our recent addition of the Belmont Cabinet line.“
