Founded in 2013 by Don Finkell, American OEM serves flooring distributors, specialty, and national retailers across North American with high-quality engineered hardwoods. We understand your needs–and your market–and we’re dedicated to delivering the products and services you need to make your own business a success.
American OEM’s socially responsible business model uses a Prison Industry Enhancement Certification Program to provide rehabilitative work opportunities for offenders during the entire manufacturing process. Working with red oak, white oak, hickory, maple, and walnut, the sustainably harvested hardwoods are transformed into high-style flooring using a combination of time-honored American handcrafting and state-of-the-art technology. Every plank is manufactured to the exacting standards of the ANSI/HPVA EF certification for top-notch quality and consistency.
Our team takes pride in the work we do. Our mission is to revitalize the art of handcrafted wood flooring, continuing an American legacy for generations to come. Along the way, we’re carrying forward a generations-long tradition of creating beautiful, responsible, enduring wood flooring. And we’re advancing our deep-rooted history of hardwood industry leadership—a history that includes innovations like engineered wood products for glue-down installation, aluminum oxide finishes and hand-scraped hardwood, plus industry-leading practices for social and environmental responsibility. All right here in the USA.
