In 1946, L.W. (“Andy”) Anderson founded
Standard Plywoods, Inc., and the foundation
of what is Anderson Hardwood today was
born. Based in the Carolinas, Anderson
has been committed to consistently
manufacturing high-quality hardwood
flooring in the United States since the
beginning. The family business grew over
the years, with successive generations
coming on board to run the company. Andy,
and his son Bob, bought Modernwood and
its manufacturing facilities and moved the
company to Clinton, SC, in 1958.
"Made in America since 1946."
Today, Anderson is owned by parent
company, Shaw Industries, one of the world’s
leading floor covering manufacturers.
Based in Georgia, Shaw Industries is a $4
billion Berkshire Hathaway company with
over 22,000 employees. Both companies
share the core values of honesty,
integrity, and passion and it’s a perfect
fit. They thrive as partners in innovation
