Bamboo flooring was very small segment of the U.S. flooring market when avid environmentalists Ann and David Knight saw the need for environmentally sound building products. From the moment the company was founded in 1994, they have been committed to developing and manufacturing beautiful bamboo products. Today, Teragren is one of North America’s largest manufacturers of environmentally friendly bamboo flooring. Solid-strip, traditional bamboo flooring was Teragren’s first product. Over the years they have expanded their product line to include wide-plank and floating floors; natural, caramelized and stained flooring; flooring stair parts and trim; panels, veneer and most recently parquet butcher block for countertops and tabletops. Teregren offers beautiful, high-performance bamboo flooring options for virtually every type of installation and provide an abundance of complementary products.
Under the leadership of co-founders Ann and David Knight, Teragren garnered widespread industry recognition, including placement on Inc. Magazine’s list of “The Green 50″ companies setting the standard for environmentally friendly businesses. The company has also achieved significant industry recognition, having been named to both the Inc. 5000 Index of Fastest Growing Private Companies and the Puget Sound Business Journal’s list of 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies for several consecutive years. In addition, David was a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in both 2008 and 2009.
