Ten Oaks has a rich history dating back to May 1922, when it was established as the Stuart Lumber Company by four local visionaries with a desire to tap into the county’s timber resources. In its formative years, the company’s leadership rotated among its four founders.
In 1982, Buddy, who had previously worked at Masonite Corporation, decided to venture out on his own. His first step was to acquire disused strip flooring equipment from Masonite, setting it up along the banks of the Mayo River. In July 1984, he founded the Stuart Flooring Corporation with just one-half of a strip mill manufacturing line.
In 2004, Buddy expanded his enterprise by acquiring the T-George Vaughan Furniture company and its facility located in the Rich Creek Corporate Park in Stuart, Virginia. The facility comprised a 260,000 square-foot building and 34 acres of land, which he intended to use for expanding his hardwood flooring operations. The mill’s name was changed from Stuart Flooring to Ten Oaks, LLC, with a vision to elevate the quality of hardwood flooring.
Over the following 14 years, Ten Oaks experienced steady growth and eventually found itself running out of space in its original Progress Drive location. It also required enhanced raw material processing capabilities to meet the rising production demand. An opportunity arose when Shaw Industries announced plans to close the old Stuart Flooring mill, and Ten Oaks seized the chance to acquire it. With access to this spacious plant, Ten Oaks could expand its solid hardwood flooring product line and provide a broader array of products that catered to customer needs.
With a company as steeped in history as Ten Oaks, Rustic Floor Supply takes immense pride in offering Ten Oaks Hardwood Flooring in Atlanta, Georgia.
