Aacer Flooring (Peshtigo, Wis.), the manufacturer of residential and sports flooring, announced it will cease operations July 31.
The company cited continued supply chain issues and labor market challenges as the reasons for the closure.
“The social and economic impacts we’ve felt the past several years have made it very difficult to maintain a business. Unfortunately, the supply chain and labor market challenges that exist today has forced us to make the very difficult decision to cease operations July 31, 2022,” Aacer stated.
Aacer Flooring is owned by the Ort family and was started in 1999 by Gerald Eugene Ort Sr., who ran a number of lumber companies before his death in October 2020. Aacer is one of only six mills approved by the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association to produce sports floors.
“The Aacer team would like to thank the hardwood flooring industry as a whole for all their support over the years,” the company stated. “It has been relationships and interactions with our customers, vendors and industry peers that have made business so enjoyable. The Aacer team has enjoyed and will miss the camaraderie and friendships that have developed over the years.”
