Gesco, L.P. (Shnier, Tierra Sol)
Shnier is Canada’s largest national floor covering solutions company. Founded by Edward George Shnier in 1938, the company has grown to be a dominant force in the Canadian floor covering industry. By providing fashionable and contemporary products, comprehensive integrated marketing programs, and industry leading logistical services, Shnier has earned the reputation of being one of the most innovative, leading edge organizations in the Canadian floor covering industry, operating on a foundation of solid business ethics and values servicing the commercial, residential, and multi-family floor covering markets.
Shnier product brands consist of both licensed and proprietary brands. Product is sourced through some 100 manufacturers located in 14 different countries. We virtually shop the world for the best available product quality, styling and value; and we deliver those products to flooring dealers in their local market. We like to think of this as “acting globally and servicing locally”. Our international sourcing coupled with cross-Canada dealer coverage is highly valued by both domestic and international manufacturers. Shnier can secure store listings & distribution nationwide more quickly and service the business more efficiently than regional distributors can. National buying groups and corporate chains also find this to be of great value because Shnier is able to supply all locations in a consistent and reliable fashion.
