Our History

CDC Distributors, Inc. was founded by C.W. ‘Chuck’ Flaum – a WWII Veteran with penchant for entrepreneurship and a passion for customer service. At age 27, Flaum managed operations for several lumber yards and developed skills that would help him lead CDC in later years. 1976 was the year Flaum started CDC Distributors, Inc. with his son Dave, who entered the industry by selling everything he owned, convincing a relative to invest & guarantee the bank loans. Sons Chris & Chuck Jr. joined shortly thereafter.

Dedication, hard work and a passion for customer service propelled CDC Distributors to one of the largest floor covering distributors in the state of Ohio by 1980. This type of growth was unprecedented during those years of rising costs, inflation and high interest rates.

Chuck and Dave credited CDC’s dedication to employees, customers and suppliers as the key reasons for the impressive growth and success of the organization – values that permeate the CDC team decades later and resonate in the actions of everyone currently part of the organization.

In 1997, Chuck Sr turned the company over to his son Dave with a succession plan to bring key employees into ownership positions. Over the 13 years Dave was President, this team tripled the size of the business as an Ohio distributor to a regional distributor in seven states.

In 2010 ownership was transitioned to a new ownership group headed up by Alan Futscher, and this group continues to grow the company and adhere to the original values of the company by continuing the commitment to the highest quality products – but more importantly – an unwavering commitment to CDC employees, customers and suppliers.
