Our History

The Cronin Company


The Cronin Company was founded in 1878 by P.J. Cronin as a saddle and harness business in downtown Portland, Oregon. The company has evolved through thirteen decades to become what it is today - one of the Northwest's leading independent wholesale distributors of fine floor covering products

Our roots in the flooring business go back to 1962. The fifth generation of the Cronin family now owns and operates the company, carrying on the time-honored Cronin tradition for integrity, quality, value, and service. The company headquarters are located in Portland, and we have eight branch operations serving customers throughout Oregon, Washington, and as far north as Alaska. Our staff consists of 140+ loyal employees, many of whom have worked for Cronin for close to thirty years.

The Cronin Product line includes ceramic tile, hardwood, luxury vinyl tile, WPC products, laminate flooring, plastic laminate, quartz, solid surfacing and a complete range of installation supplies.
