Kermans Flooring: A century of service, selection and success
Published: September 21, 2021
When Robert J. Benjamin left northwestern Persia for the United States as a teenager, he had his sights set on the American dream. Born in 1896 in a city now known as Urmia, a trading center with ancient roots that reach back to the 9th century, he was determined to reinvent himself as a successful 20th-century man of business.
In 1921, young Mr. Benjamin accomplished two major life transformations; the first when he married and the second when he opened Kermans Oriental Rug Company. His mission was simple: Provide his customers with the ideal mix of the finest products available and the utmost in personal service.
True to Robert Benjamin’s ideals and expectations, the company flourished. Within 40 years, Kermans had built a network of invaluable industry connections to supplement the deep experience with its market, products and customers. Kermans entered its fourth decade with specialties in all forms of flooring and every aspect of true customer service. With carpet, hardwood, tile, area rugs and resilient flooring among its product options, Kermans gave customers access to the finest brands and broadest selection of options available.
The second generation of the Benjamin family joined the business in the 1960s and helped propel Kermans to become one of the premier sources of flooring in the entire state of Indiana. Today, as Kermans enters its centennial year, the third generation of the Benjamin family carries on Robert Benjamin’s founding traditions of product quality and selection, backed with a consultative approach to customer service.
Kermans was, is and always will be a customer-centered company. The big box stores that advertise themselves as low-cost options often delegate service and quality issues to a national call center.
