The Ohio Floor Company Turns 40 Years Old

January 25, 2024

The Ohio Floor Company is celebrating its 40th year in business. We official started doing business is 1984 but we can trace our origins back to the early 1960s, when George Bear of Sugarcreek founded Bear Floor Sanding. The primary business of the company at that time was installing and refinishing residential hardwood floors.

In 1984, Bear Floor Sanding was purchased by Steve Yoder and became Mid-Ohio Hardwood Floors. MOHF grew steadily and entered the arena of installing and finishing maple gym floors. The company continued to expand its product line to include other types of gym floors, weight room flooring and other commercial flooring, while still maintaining a presence in the residential market.  In 2005, Mid-Ohio Hardwood Floors was renamed The Ohio Floor Company to encompass the many types of flooring installed by the company.
