About Us

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to look at our website.  G.R. Flooring’s staff are committed to ensure that our clients receive the best in class customer experience and level of service that is unmatched in Regina’s Flooring Industry.

G.R. Distributors was started over 30 years ago by my father Ghislain Richard to fulfil a need for quality hardwood flooring in the Regina area.  I joined the company in 1996 and together we expanded our distribution throughout Western Canada as well as the Northern United States.  After many years of working with various flooring stores, numerous changes were occurring in the market and with myself taking the reins, the decision was made to become a full-service flooring provider. 

 In late 2016, we decided that we needed to focus 100% on the Regina market, and therefore made the decision to close our distribution warehouse in Winnipeg.  Since then, working with our existing customer base, we have gone through the lengthy and rigorous process of creating improved procedures and systems in an effort to provide the best possible customer service and experience for our clients.

We specialize in new construction, renovations, multifamily and value engineered projects.  Our focus is to build and expand our business responsibly and create strong relations with our partners. 

Yours Truly,
Michael Richard
