In 1971, fresh out of High School, Randy Hoffman Sr. went to work for Willy Northrup at Arvada Hardwood Floor Company. Randy installed and finished hardwood flooring for Arvada Hardwood Floor Company until the fall of 1985. That year Randy opened and operated American Hardwood Floor Company. He quickly landed key accounts with the new business including Mission Viejo Company. At that time, Mission Viejo had just begun to develop property south of Denver, building new homes in became Highland’s Ranch.
In the spring of 1986, Willy Northrup offered Randy ownership at Arvada Hardwood Floor Company. Randy eventually accepted the offer and served as Vice President until the sale of the company in 2002. Randy’s leadership skills, knowledge and respect in the industry helped Arvada Hardwood become the largest flooring company in Colorado.
By the late-1990’s, Arvada Hardwood was the partner of choice for nearly every major homebuilder in Colorado. Through these partnerships, Arvada Hardwood installed, sanded and finished literally millions of square feet of hardwood flooring in new homes throughout Colorado. All three of Randy’s sons, Donnie, Randy M., and Jeremy, had followed in their father’s footsteps as hardwood floor mechanics at Arvada Hardwood. As the next generation of hardwood floor craftsmen, they set the bar for those around them.
