Our Story


Innovation in Flooring Since 1972

Watch Carol Nance give a strong & powerful statement to women everywhere in the business world, while giving a brief story of the history of Nance Industries.

Nance Industries, originally Nance Carpet & Rug, first started in 1972 with the dream and determination of a young mother who turned carpet scraps into quality rugs.

Carol Nance's journey as a woman business owner began when times were not popular for women in the work force, but she was determined to rise above her poor upbringing and provide a good life for her family. 

Today Carol, along with her husband Bob Nance, has grown the company from a small cut rug operation to now operating in five manufacturing plants spread across the north end of Calhoun, Georgia.

With the help of second and third generation family members, Nance Industries is now the largest woman owned flooring business in the United States; offering its flooring & services to major home centers, retailers, contractors, and more.
