America's leader in surface preparation and floor removal equipment

Our Story

National Flooring Equipment began like most success stories – with an idea of how to solve problems more efficiently.

Our company was founded in 1968 when the Anderson family began developing new flooring tools in their garage in Minnesota. From there, they started designing surface preparation equipment with a focus on durability and long-lasting performance. The Olson family bought National in 2007, shifting the company’s primary focus to industrial-grade surface preparation and floor removal equipment, with a focus on customer service. The Olsons built upon the Andersons’ tradition of quality products and competitive pricing.
Over time, they introduced larger floor removal equipment to the market, expanding their operations, reputation, and customer base. Thanks to their vision, National now has over 50 patents registered in the United States and around the world, giving us a global presence unmatched in our industry. We’re incredibly proud of the level of customer service everyone at National provides. It’s not unheard of for a National representative to personally deliver a piece of equipment when a contractor needs it quickly to complete a project. We’re here for our customers seven days per week, ready to solve problems with tools that make their job easier.

Our industry has changed a lot since 1968. But our tradition of providing excellent customer service will always be our number one priority.

Our People

As a family-owned business, National understands that our real strength lies in our people.

The National team works hard to create an exceptional customer experience unparalleled in our industry every day. We believe in ongoing skills upgrading, adapting innovation, and discovering new ways to help our customers – and having fun while doing it!

That’s because you’re more than a customer to us – you’re part of the National family.
