Shnier Profile

Shnier is Canada's leading national floor covering solutions company. Founded by George Edward Shnier in 1938, the company has grown to become a dominant force in the Canadian floor covering industry. With corporate headquarters located in Brampton Ontario, Shnier operates four additional regional facilities located in Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Dartmouth. Each is fully equipped to serve local markets with state of the art warehousing, showroom, and regional sales office.

Shnier has over 500,000 square feet of warehouse capacity across Canada (the equivalent of nine football fields). We operate 7 warehouse facilities; handling over 100 million pounds of freight and receives over 5,000 trailer loads of goods per year.

As Canada’s largest flooring distributor, Shnier offers a complete and comprehensive product portfolio consisting of every flooring category including hardwood, laminate, ceramic and stone tile, carpet, luxury vinyl and cork.

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.
