5280 Floors was founded in 2011 by Eric See. We started like most companies, a one-man show out of a garage. We are still a small business, with one owner and currently 10 Team Members. Our goal is continued growth, but to never get so big we stop focusing on the most important thing – the client.
Prior to starting the company, Eric was the National Sales Manager for Bona, the world leader in hardwood floor machines, abrasives, and finishes. At Bona, Eric learned the hardwood contracting business, including best practices and how to properly use the highest quality products in the industry. Most importantly, Eric learned how to run 5280 Floors like a business, with processes and procedures to provide a consistent product, and quality client experience.
The reason 5280 Floors exists is to create a great place to work and to bring a higher level of professionalism to the hardwood floor market in Denver. When our team is happy, we are best able to keep you happy throughout your experience with 5280 Floors.
Aside from work, Eric enjoys exploring Colorado with his wife and three kids and coaching youth sports.
Our 5280 Team is formed of Crews, with Crew Leads and Apprentices. Quarterly reports track the progress and motivate apprentices to become our newest, responsible Leads. The growth of the whole reflects the growth of the individual, and we hire only the best people to be our craftsmen, making 5280 a better company through our Team.
This teamwork is grown through company events like Team Breakfasts and our recent outing to Unser Racing (Congratulations to Kevin on Best Lap Time and Steve on his first place finish). Because of these outings, the Team Members are not only acknowledged for their hard work, but get to know each other, enabling us to Team Up on your projects, to get things done, on time and with quality throughout the 5280 Process.
