A One-Stop Flooring Shop
National Hardwood Flooring & Moulding offers creative solutions, high-quality products and unsurpassed expertise
With 44 years of experience in the wood industry, Omer Katzir, the Owner and Founder of National Hardwood Flooring & Moulding (National Hardwood), brings passion, creativity and unsurpassed knowledge to his business. Omer has worked just about every job you could imagine, having started out as an installer and stepping up the ladder to contractor, flooring contactor, general contractor, retailer and wholesaler. Then, 25 years ago he added manufacturing to his impressive resume.
As a result of his many years of experience, Omer recognized there was a need for a wholesale flooring and moulding showroom. National Hardwood, which was officially established in 1984, is currently a U.S. wholesaler and manufacturer of hardwood floor, with a showroom, warehouse and mill located in Van Nuys, California. Omer says of his business’ mission, “We can help a lot of people solve their flooring problems and get what they need. We get directly to the point, finding the products that are most suitable to each particular project.”
Fully Stocked for Every Need
National Hardwood’s showroom is readily stocked with essential items that its commercial and residential customers request. Omer says, “We’re able to accommodate all of their needs, from the smallest nails to the most powerful sanders. We inventory a vast assortment of stains and finishes, and specialized tools.” Basically, there’s something for everyone.
As the name suggests, National Hardwood provides an enormous variety of hardwood flooring and moulding, consisting of all different sizes and species of wood. Omer remarks, “We stock over one million feet of flooring: unfinished, pre-finished and all the types in between that are necessary to complete a quality job. In addition, we carry an immense selection of custom borders in a large variety of species of wood. We also specialize in custom staircases, such as high-end floating stairs. We stain the wood to match any wood flooring, providing truly custom products that are not only beautiful but long-lasting. Not everyone can do that, but because of my experience, we can.”
National Hardwood does a lot of custom homes, apartments and residential work in addition to commercial, institutional and hospitality jobs. Omer shares, “We just did 103 units over at a senior home. We’re now doing 229 units for an apartment building. Our reputation in the industry is very high, and we ensure that each job is taken care of on time. That’s so important to the builders we work with because for every month a unit isn’t occupied, that’s money lost. Not only that, but our experience allows us to recommend products that can help our customers stay within their budget as well as attain the quality they’re looking for.”
In the case of the 229-unit project, Omer explains that the decorator chose a product that cost almost five dollars a square foot installed. He says, “We were able to install it for a total of $4.30 a square foot. That $ .70 savings, multiplied out for the 229 units, ended up saving the owner close to $200,000. That’s what we specialize in.”

Clientele benefit from the company’s position as an industry leader and ability to provide high-quality products for the most competitive prices.
