The company known today as McMinnville Manufacturing originally began operations as a sawmill in the late 1800s and is the oldest company in continuous operation in Warren County, Tennessee. Since the late 1800s, the Company has survived the ebb and flows of flooring trends and has become one of the oldest producers of hardwood flooring in the United States.
In 1912, the Company incorporated and what is believed to be the first permanent dry kilns in the United States were constructed. A hardwood flooring plant was also added at this time, which still operates today, making MMC one of the oldest manufacturers of hardwood flooring.
Up until the 1960s, hardwood flooring was the basic floor covering in most homes. Beginning at that time, fashions changed and carpeting became the floor covering of choice. This was reflected in the decrease in the number of manufacturers of hardwood flooring from an estimated 300 in 1966 to an estimated 12 nationwide in 1981. From the 1980s to the present, there has been a resurgence in the demand for hardwood flooring. The driving factors for the resurgence in hardwood flooring seem to be: 1. the increasing awareness by homeowners that carpet inherently harbors dust and dirt, and 2. the beauty and durability of hardwood flooring, looking new after many decades with re-sanding and refinishing. Today, there are perhaps as many as 100 hardwood manufacturers in the United States, and management estimates that MMC ranks among the top one-third in terms of hardwood flooring sales and production.
As one of the countries oldest manufacturers, McMinnville Manufacturing Company is proud to be carrying on the traditions set forth by hard work and quality workmanship.
