The Strongest Linc in Your Supply Chain

Our History

Abraham Linc started in 1976 as a carpet distributor servicing Bridgeport, WV, but has grown to become the Mid-Atlantic’s best supplier for residential and commercial flooring products.

Branded as Abraham Linc in 1996 to emphasize its role as the link between the best flooring businesses in the Mid-Atlantic and the products they need to be successful, Abraham Linc has never lost sight of its humble beginnings.

Abraham Linc remains focused on providing excellent customer service for its customers with relevant, high-quality products they want, when they want them, delivered damage and dirty-free.

Abraham Linc remains privately held, giving them the flexibility to provide the products and services their customer requires.
