William M. Bird & Co.
For more than 150 years has been providing its customers with innovative products and expert solutions. Our company’s successes and staying power in an ever-changing marketplace can be attributed to the sustained stewardship and entrepreneurial spirit set forth by our founder, William M. Bird.
In 1936, Bird began distributing Armstrong floor coverings and building materials. Bird soon became an innovator in the flooring industry, embracing Armstrong’s new developments of cork inlaid floors and selling them across the Southeast. Fifty years later, Bird adopted groundbreaking products such as Triangle Pacific’s Bruce Engineered Hardwoods, Pergo laminate flooring MetroFlor’s luxury vinyl tile and the company’s in-house brand, Palmetto Road, represents one of Bird’s newest and fastest growing lines. In the 1980’s Bird led an initiative to expand into the piedmont of South Carolina, North Carolina and eventually the boom-town market of Atlanta, Georgia with the acquisition of George D. Bridges Distributors. Since then, William M. Bird has grown to become one of the leading floor covering distributors in the Southeast.
