Macdonald Floorcovering Group was established in 1995 as a one man band flooring company working from a garage at home, by director Brendan Macdonald.
At that time, opportunities for the business arrived to increase its turnover very quickly by using the long held family values in the commercial flooring industry; and building a business around relationships with clients, deliver promises and provide a professional customer service. The Macdonald family has a long history in the commercial flooring industry in Victoria, Brendan’s father Ron was a contractor first staring back in the 1960’s.
Brendan Macdonald obtained his Certificate III in floorcoverings in 1989, under his leadership the company’s inception has always employed apprentices and is currently one of the largest employers of apprentices in Victoria, with an unwavering belief in the benefits of training-your-own-staff. Since day one our focus has been on training staff and employing a good mix of apprentices wages based employees and subcontractors to meet the demands of the commercial construction industry.
Brendan Macdonald has been actively involved and is currently the board member of FAV (Floorcovering Association of Victoria ), has also membership in VECCI (Chamber of Commerce and Industry). The company has a commitment to apprentice training via TFIA (Council of Textile and Fashion Industries of Australia) and also undertakes sponsorship programmes with local junior, senior and veterans football clubs.
As the floorcovering industry changes due to ever increasing imported products and the need for streamlining of our clients needs for a one stop shop floorcovering contractor, we feel we have the capability to thrive in this market due to our core values and our ever expanding areas of work capabilities from traditional carpet and vinyl flooring, to removal of existing floorcoverings, diamond grinding, moisture barriers , waterproof membranes and floor preparation, then into supply and installation of not only our traditional carpet and vinyl flooring but also polished concrete, concrete overlays, epoxy coatings, floating timber floors, brass and aluminium expansion joints, stair nosings etc and possibly any request from our clientele.
Since 1999 the business has been located in Campbellfield in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, the location is strategically placed for interstate transport and logistics and ease of travelling on the Western Ring Road freeway.
At MacDonald Floorcovering Group, we believe our administration staff and our installation team are our greatest asset. Our current team consists of the managing director Brendan Macdonald; in addition, we have a financial controller, a sales and estimation team, onsite supervisor in control of all installations with solid industry knowledge and experience, our own trucks coordinating onsite deliveries, and then our onsite team consisting of leading hands, wage based experienced installers, subcontract installers and apprentices.
Overall Macdonald Floorcovering Group has not and will not change from the family company philosophy, with members of the directors family actively employed and some team members already having over 15 years service in the business and also still working for some of the same clients since inception we feel the “proof is in the pudding”
