humble beginnings.
"the story"

It all began in 1983 when Larry started working for the Father of the girl he was interested in. He didn't want his good looks to be the only thing she noticed; but rather that he was an honest, hard working man that loved helping people. I'd say she must have noticed because they married the end of that year. Larry eventually bought the business from his [now] Father-in-Law and changed the name from Sprint Cleaning Services to what you now know it as - Floorcovering Technologies. 5 children and 15 years later, they made the move from FL to TN and rebuilt the business from scratch here in Cumberland County in the Spring of 1999. Now, 19 years later, Larry still has clients that have been with him since day one. This is not by chance or luck, but by being consistent, punctual, honest, standing behind his work, and by treating every customer like they are family. They love this town and the people in it. The church down the street is where he taught his girls to ride their bikes. The triangle building on Main Street is where his wife opened her first Home Furnishing shop called "The Wooden Acorn". Two of their daughters were married here. This is the town that he and his son started a business together in... and this is where he and his wife first became "Nina & Popi".

This is our community. This is the town we have fallen in love with. This is home...and we are here to stay.
