Meet Angela Henry: Building a Legacy in Floor Care

Meet Angela Henry, Owner of 1877FloorGuy and Floor Guy Supply in New Castle, Delaware

With a name like 1877FloorGuy, it may be surprising that the person at the helm is actually not a guy… While Angela Henry became the sole owner of Floor Guy Supply, the parent company of 1877FloorGuy, in 2021, she has been a driving force behind their success since 2001.

Angela began her career with the company in 2001 as a temp. It became evident to the then owner of the company, Reggie, that not only was Angela professional and hardworking, but she also possessed key attributes critical for success. She was quickly offered a full-time position which she happily accepted. The rest, as they say, is history.

In 2004, she became the Operations Manager of the company – building and maintaining relationships with vendors and customers. Heading the customer service team, she made sure that every customer got the attention and service they deserved. Never one to force a solution that won’t work just to register a sale, Angela has always taken the time to learn about the customer, what problem(s) they’re facing and what’s the best solution she can provide to help.

In 2008, she took the same dedication to customer service and turned her attention to purchasing and handling the relationship between the vendors and the business, managing the day-to-day operations.

In 2012, when the owners approached her with the idea of her possibly taking over the business one day, it seemed like a natural progression (once the shock wore off). In 2021, Angela officially took the reins of the company and hasn’t looked back.
