Private equity firm Transom Capital Group has acquired Galleher, LLC, a western regional distributor and manufacturer of flooring products which are sold under both company-owned and leading third-party brands via retail, contractor, commercial and other channels.
Founded in 1937, Galleher is based in Los Angeles, Ca., and designs, manufactures and distributes residential and commercial flooring products. Galleher, including its commercial division Galleher Commercial, has over 400 employees and 36 locations across seven states.
Galleher reportedly is the largest floor covering distributor in the West and the third largest flooring distributor in the U.S. The company offers hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl plank, and installation accessories to flooring contractors, dealers/showrooms, commercial installers, builders, property managers, designers/architects, and other customers. Proprietary brands include GemCore, Reward and Monarch Plank.
“Galleher has a rich history in the flooring industry and we believe there are meaningful opportunities for growth,” said Steve Kim, principal at Transom. “Our plan is for the company to continue to invest in core markets with new product offerings and capabilities, while further expanding the company’s reach geographically.”
The company will continue to operate as an independent entity within Transom’s portfolio of companies. The acquisition will provide Galleher with additional resources, expertise, and financial backing to accelerate its product innovation, expand into new markets, and deepen customer relationships.
