About Us » Corporate Overview
It all started with the hard work, vision and leadership of Mike Kulyk Sr. After working in the drapery business, he made his way into the flooring business where, alongside his own family, he began building what would eventually become the largest commercial flooring supply and installation company in Canada.
Mike originally started KBM out of his garage in October 1988 and while the space was small, his vision was not. He was going to build a successful business by looking after customers, being honest and continually striving for improvement. This philosophy is clearly represented by the success and reputation of KBM today.
Over twenty-five years later, under the leadership of Mike Kulyk Sr.'s family and the dedication of 180 employees, KBM still operates under the same philosophy, leveraging decades of vast experience, a strong family history and a solid brand that speaks with a confident and collective voice.
