Horizon Forest Products (HFP) and Long Floor have announced the relocation of their Beltsville branch to a new 36,000 square foot building. The facility is located at 10549 Tucker Street in Beltsville and will allow the branch to expand in the coming months.

Phil Kearney manages the companies’ Beltsville location and says that the move is the largest undertaking of his career and adds that the new location will allow for greater company efficiency and will improve overall customer service and satisfaction.

“In our new space, we’re able to provide inside truck loading, which is ideal during inclement weather,” explains Kearney. “We also have more showroom space and the capacity to set up the product store that our other branches have been able to do and have been able to bring together our inside and counter salespeople, who were previously located in two separate locations in the building. Overall, we now have a larger, cleaner, more sales friendly, and more convenient location.”

The Beltsville branch employs 15 employees and recently occupied a 27,000 square foot facility. Kearney adds that the new location also provides a much larger parking area, allowing the branch to set aside priority spaces for customer parking.

“I am extremely pleased and proud of the effort that every one of my teammates put forth to enable us to get the job done,” adds Kearney. “Our customers will benefit from a much easier buying experience in the new flooring store, and we can now expose them to products they may not have realized we carried.”
